GATECREEPER Working With DISMEMBER's Drummer On New Record

Gatecreeper and Fred Estby? Yes please.


The first Gatecreeper full-length since 2019's Deserted is coming, and it's gonna be real heavy. Gatecreeper has revealed they were recently working on the new record with longtime Dismember drummer Fred Estby (ex-Carnage, Ekstasis, etc.), only mentioning that the new stuff is on its way. So here's hoping it's out either later this year or early 2024, right?

"We have had the pleasure of working on our new material with Fred Estby from legendary Swedish death metal bands Dismember and Carnage," wrote Gatecreeper on their Instagram. "LP #3 is on it's way…"

On the topic of the long-awaited record, Gatecreeper vocalist Chase Mason revealed in an October 2022 interview that the band was really cracking down on the new material and that their mostly-grind (and one funeral doom song) EP An Unexpected Reality from 2021 was purely experimental.

"We've been working on it in between tours," said Mason. "We've been touring this year more than we ever have actually, just kind of like 'we're able to do it again, let's just go for it.' We have been working on… we put out a record [in] the first week of 2021… it was the pandemic so we were like 'oh, we can't tour. Let's just make a record.' It was a little bit of an experiment for us, but we've been working on our next full-length.

"We actually just started to schedule out to record it, which is after we get done with all these tours. In the first half of next year, we're just gonna be working on a new record. We're gonna have to stand our ground and set a hard rule of 'alright, if whoever wants to take us out on tour for the first six months of next year, that's coming and we're gonna have to say no.' We're gonna have to do a new record. We've been working on. I'm not sure if it'll be out next year, but we're definitely going to get it recorded by next year."
