NJ post-hardcore band Gatherers have signed to No Sleep Records (who have been on a roll lately with releases by Stay Inside, Charmer, Hot Mulligan, and more), and they'll release their fourth album on the label later this year. While you wait for that, they've released their first single from the album, "Ad Nauseam, I Drown," which is pretty promising stuff. It kinda sounds like a cross between the heavy yet melodic and flamboyant sound of Glassjaw and the atmospheric post-hardcore of Circa Survive. If you dig the stuff on our recent list of 15 albums that defined the 2000s post-hardcore boom, you're probably gonna dig this too. Listen below.

The band also made us a playlist of songs they were listening to while writing the album. "Whether for inspiration or for hitting that mental reset button, these artists are all equally important to us," Rich Weinberger says. Each member contributed two songs, and it's a mix of artists whose influence on Gatherers is very audible (Deftones, Poison The Well, Quicksand) and some stuff that's a little outside of their usual box (Modeselektor, Phoebe Bridgers). "Hopefully you enjoy them as much as we do," Rich adds. Listen to the playlist below.

What Gatherers Were Listening To While Writing LP4
Deftones - “Battle-Axe”
