GIDEON reveal video for ‘2 CLOSE’ ft. Drew York (Stray From The Path)

New album Out Of Control due for release 11th October 2019 via Rude Records/Equal Vision Records


In anticipation of their fifth full-length Out of Control, which is due for release on 11th October 2019 via Rude Records/Equal Vision Records, Alabama hardcore quartet GIDEON have revealed the video for ‘2 CLOSE‘. The new single features Stray From The Path vocalist Drew York, with whom the band will be touring with later this year.

Check out the video for ‘2 CLOSE‘ here:

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 the band has been churning out this year.

GIDEON will return to the UK and Europe later this year with Stray From The PathThe Devil Wears Prada and Loathe.

From a very early age, most of us are moulded 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 its eclectic array of musical influences, including a heavy dose of 90s and 00s nu metal, clear inflections of outlaw country, and hip hop, Out of Control is a powerful statement of 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 realisation 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 and 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.
