Chicago-based progressive thrash band TWELFTH GATE have reunited with original singer Scott Huffman & guitarist Rich Knight, and have scheduled a reunion show to take place on Saturday, Dec 10th at Reggie’s Rock Club (17+ event) in Chicago, IL. Rounding out the live lineup will be original bass player Rob Such, original live rhythm guitarist Gabe DeLaurie, and drummer Sean Scala. The band is planning on playing their debut album, Summoning (2003, Crash Music) in its entirety, with maybe a select track or two off their sophomore album Threshold of Revelation (2006, Season of Mist). Also performing will be some very talented up-and-comers from the local Chicago metal scene –
TRIALS, CLAD IN DARKNESS and DEADNIGHT.
Rob also commented: “Jamming with Rich & Scott again has made me realize how much I really missed the old Twelfth Gate lineup…the chemistry we have, both musically and as friends, just makes jamming that much more fun! Also, bringing Gabe back into the fold, with his flawless execution of our songs, and adding the monster of a drummer in Sean, has brought a new life back into the band. I believe that without all these players, the reunion would not have been possible. Rich and I have also always been a great writing team, and the material we’re already coming up with is proof positive of that fact! I can’t wait to finish some of these new ideas and have Scott add his unquestionable creativity into the mix. Once everything gets rolling again, there will be nothing stopping us…Twelfth Gate is back!”
