New Jersey's Gatherers announced their signing to Equal Vision Records in March 2015, with
the release of their first label full-length “Quiet World”. The album slowly garnered a cult-like
following after the debut of the single “Ritual Flowers”, a harrowing track written to “..sound like
a Lars Von Trier film” that was matched with an equally dense music video.
Shortly after its debut, the band embarked on a full-U.S. tour supporting Every Time I Die,
Counterparts and Real Friends as part of the Common Vision Tour ‘15. The tour earned the
band a buzz-worthy reputation for their cathartically honest live shows. The band was invited to
perform at Fest 14 & 15 alongside mewithoutYou, Foxing and Drug Church.
During the later stages of writing their sophomore release, the band’s lineup evolved with the
addition of Rob Talalai and Anthony Gesa on guitars. At the time Gesa contributed guitars while
on touring as a tech for Dillinger Escape Plan as well as co-managing Party Samsher Inc. with
DEP’s Ben Weinman. Talalai and Gesa accompany drummer Adam Cichocki, bassist Matt
Popowski and vocalist Rich Weinberger
On June 1st 2018, the band released their highly anticipated sophomore full-length album titled
“WE ARE ALIVE BEYOND REPAIR” with Long Island-based producer Mike Watts (Glassjaw,
Hopesfall) The album was met with a wave of buzz-worthy reception and positive reviews.
