Los Angeles-based hard rock quintet Lions at the Gate has released the new track “Find My Way” featuring Tatiana Shmayluk of Jinjer, plus the accompanying music video.
“With ‘Find My Way,’ we tried to break all the formulaic rules on this one,” frontman Cristian Machado said. “Pushed the boundaries, took it to extremes. In the end, we realized how rewarding it was fitting intensely contrasting musical elements into one track. And it is a killer heavy track that also offers a beautifully haunting melody. From the onset it seemed perfect for Tatiana’s voice, the fact that she wound up on the track is mind-blowing. Her voice is absolutely stunning and it is a huge honor having her on.
“Lyrically the song walks the line between fear, surrender and the will to overcome. At the time of writing the album, I felt pinned by so many things gone wrong in my life. I remember I just held on to hope and faith long enough till I found a place of safe surrender. A place where I could slowly lift the weight off, finally be untethered. It’s a familiar theme that resonates throughout the whole album, the will to overcome, the power to see the beauty in a world that is unforgiving.”
Lions at the Gate previously released the song “Bed of Nails.”
The band will make its live debut on Thursday, April 28, at the Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles, supported by fellow metal acts Thrown into Exile and Breaking in a Sequence. Tickets are on sale here.
Lions at the Gate features former Ill Niño members Cristian Machado (vocals), guitarists Diego Verduzco and Ahrue Luster (ex-Machine Head), along with bassist Stephen Brewer (ex-Westfield Massacre) and drummer Fern Lemus (ex-Silence the Messenger).
