New Jersey rock group fastens their seat belts for a busy 2018.
Gatherers is not only ecstatic to share the release of their new track, “The Floorboards Are Breathing” but the band also recently announced their spot on Michigan’s own Bled Fest May 26, 2018. On top of that, Gatherers is also expected to release an album summer 2018.
Gatherers new song, “The Floorboards Are Breathing” was influenced by the documentary One Minute To Nine that discuses the final days of exemption prior to sentencing for a mother and her son for manslaughter. Gatherers felt a connection after viewing the documentary and decided to apply their musical talent in creating the song.
“‘The Floorboards Are Breathing’ was one of the earlier songs we began to play around with when we started writing this record. The lyrics and imagery came about one night after watching a documentary titled “Every Fucking Day of My Life”; a film that recounts the experiences of a mother and her sons after surviving years of horrifying domestic abuse,” recalls Anthony Gesa. “I knew early on that I wanted to write lyrics from the perspective of the walls in their house. It was an effort to explore an idea that felt way more real and human albeit emotionally dreadful. It’s one of the ugliest songs on the record, thematically speaking.”
