GIDEON - Share New Single/Video “2 Close” Feat. Drew York (Stray From The Path)

Today, Alabama metalcore outfit, Gideon, further fanned the flames of anticipation for their new full-length, "Out of Control", due out this Friday, by sharing the fourth single “2 CLOSE” with an accompanying video. If fans weren’t already excited enough, the track also features fellow metalcore vet and vocalist of Stray From The Path, Drew York.

While “2 CLOSE” might just be Gideon’s grooviest and catchiest song on "Out of Control", it’s still packed full of the insanely heavy riffs that band has been churning out this year. In support of the album the band will be hitting the road in Europe with Stray From The Path in December.

From a very early age, most of us are molded by the traditions of our upbringing. While there are undeniable benefits to tradition, often the fear of bucking against the expectations they create prevent us from pursuing our personal truth. Growing up in the deep south, the members of Gideon spent years letting these mental fences dictate their creative direction. On their aptly titled fifth full-length album, "Out of Control", the band is no longer allowing themselves to be put in a box, sonically or topically, to fit what is expected of them. Enhanced by it’s eclectic array of musical influences such as a heavy dose of 90’s and 2000’s nu metal, clear inflections of outlaw country, and hip hop, "Out of Control" is a powerful statement regarding who the members of Gideon really are and where they come from.

The members of Gideon - Daniel McWhorter (Vocals), Tyler Riley (Guitar), Jake Smelley (Drums) and Caleb DeRusha (Bass) - have encountered a myriad of cultures while touring the world in support of their music. These opportunities led to the realization that open-mindedness and acceptance are important aspects of developing your own perspective. As a result, they’ve grown away from their roots as a “Christian Metalcore” band. Through their last three records, this transition becomes apparent. On 2014’s "Calloused", the band offered glimpses into their internal struggle with being a “Christian” band. By the release of "Cold" in 2017, they emerged more bitter and aggressive; defiant in the face of expectations. Finally, "Out of Control" finds the band breaking free of all previous restraints as they craft a diverse record unlike anything they’ve ever released.

Gideon will be on tour in Europe with Stray From The Path and The Devil Wears Prada. Check the dates below.
