Chicago / Brooklyn duo Gatekeeper have released two EPs, one on Kompakt sub-label Fright and one on excellent label Merok, both of which were brazenly faithful updates of pounding EBM, soaked in visceral horror camp, with just the best drums.
So, it’s really great news that they’re touring. For some of the dates in the UK, they’ll be joined by Dummy mix alumni Laurel Halo and Konx-Om-Pax. Fun fact – Laurel Halo released her EP ‘King Felix’ on Hippos In Tanks, who released Gatekeeper’s VHS edition of their Merok EP, and sang vocals on Konx-Om-Pax’s album track, Halo Ritual.
