GIDEON SHARE NEW SINGLE "BITE DOWN"; NEW ALBUM “OUT OF CONTROL” OUT OCTOBER 11
The band's upcoming album, Out of Control, is a hard-hitting reinvigoration of their sound, imbued with a layer of abandon and vehemence that will no doubt garner them a whole new fanbase. - Kerrang!
Today, Alabama metalcore outfit, Gideon, shared the pummeling second single "BITE DOWN", that also serves as the album close for their fifth full-lenght, Out of Control, due out October 11th via Rude Records in partnership with Equal Vision Records. Following the release of their critically-acclaimed and fan-beloved lead single, "TAKE ME", "BITE DOWN" shows just how heavy Gideon will be taking things across the twelve tracks offered up on their upcoming album. This latest track doesn't just overwhelm the listener with heaviness, it also mixes all of the new influences that fans can expect to hear throughout Out of Control, mixed tightly with their no holds barred attitude.
In support of the album the band will be hitting the road in Europe with Stray From The Path in December. You can pre-order the album here and listen "BITE DOWN" on YouTube or Spotify.
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.
