Video: “The Gates” by Young Empires

Take a look at the video for “The Gates”, the title track off Young Empires‘ upcoming Sept. 4th album release.  The Amos LeBlanc directed video showcases an incredible earworm for the Toronto band, off a record that is “deftly delivering chant-worthy choruses and weaving together head-bobbing beatcraft with avant-pop melodies”.

Tourdates below.  Toronto folk, note the free show this weekend at the Harbourfront, as I believe the Drake CD release might already be sold out.
