The City Gates Reveal New Single "Lapidation"

Montreal post punk/ darkwave / shoegaze band The City Gates have revealed their new single “Lapidation” and its accompanying music video.

The song is out now via Icy Cold Recordz and Velouria Recordz and is the second taste of their forthcoming album due out in 2024. Grab it here.

Recorded, mixed, and mastered by François Marsan at Velouria Studio in Montreal, “Lapidation” stands as a darkly danceable offering that’s sure to resonate with fans of The Sisters of Mercy, The Chameleons, and Ash Code.

The video, filmed in the attic of the band’s Velouria Studio, was created by drummer, Bitou, with the assistance of MADOC, TWEAX, and Dino Chauvette handling cameras and lighting, respectively.

The City Gates will embark on the Lapidation European Tour next month.
