For those who know/like Kimbra she posted about this band a few weeks back on twitter

A treat for my prog-rockin' fans (I know ur out there)! Introducing the amazing @gatherernz: http://tinyurl.com/88xrmst. Go follow them! #NewMusic

Their debut album "So Be It" is available to stream and download for another day and a half here:
http://redtaperecords.bandcamp.com/

Then it'll go on sale on June 1st.

Musically, they're kind of like a minor-key slightly poppy prog-screamo band. Although the band under the name This City Sunrise had more screaming, they still have some on this debut record of theirs.

They almost remind me of 22, but heavier/riffier in a lot of ways.

Gatherer is a familiar feeling, delivered with unfamiliar sound. Beautifully haunting melodies, complex rhythms and a wall of sound so huge it’s hard to comprehend.

On the road, Gatherer has shared the stage with bands such as …And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead, The Getaway Plan, Fear Before, La Dispute and a slew of other international acts. Gatherer's unique sound, combined with a ferocious, passionate live show, finds them not fitting in with any pre-existing crowd, but creating their own.

May 2nd marks the release of Gatherer's debut album, So Be It. Filled with ironic optimism and tongue in cheek backlash, less sporadic but still that little bit outrageous, So Be It will introduce a whole new world of sound to deliver what will ultimately be an 12-song epic.

For the next 48 hours, So Be It is up as a special 'pay what you want' download. The album can also be streamed and pre-ordered from their label, Red Tape Records, at redtaperecords.bandcamp.com

The physical release on Red Tape Records will be in stores on 1st June, via Fuse Distribution, and Elevenfiftyseven Records in New Zealand.

EDIT: So I listened to it and it's actually not as bad as I was expecting. Will probably download it.

I can't tell if I like this band or not, but the sound is definitely very interesting.

I thought this was about the band Gatherer who have an album titled Between a Rock & a Sad Place. I love that album.

the band from New Jersey?

I personally find that band awful, and wish they'd change their name to be honest. But it's just a matter of taste.

But I imagine most around here can relate to the similar/same name of a band issue.

The Gatherer band this topic is about are from Down Under, but if their interest ever gets to the point they are touring and releasing their music in America, the identical name thing may become an issue.

I like them, they replaced their singer though. I'm hoping they'll be great with the new singer as well, but since you find them awful I don't think you really care haha.
