The Gateway District district formed as a side project in 2006 and has since evolved into something between a side project and a full project; call it…. a three quarters project? ie, between full and half? Yeah, that’s really catchy sounding. I like that.
Anyway, the reason it’s not a full project is because everyone in the band has been in other bands (The Soviettes, Dear Landlord, Banner Pilot, etc) at the same time, or is off traveling, or lives in a different state, and so on. But it’s super fun and we’ve actually been pretty productive, in my opinion, given the circumstances. In 2006 we released a four song 7″ record as a three piece band (I played both guitar and bass). We didn’t do much after that until 2008 when Carrie joined the band and I switched to guitar full-time. Since then we’ve released three full length albums (Some Days You Get the Thunder in 2009, Perfect’s Gonna Fail in 2011, and Old Wild Hearts in 2013) and are set to release a 5 song EP in late 2013 / early 2014.
