Gåte returns to full level folk rock with five wonderful and epic songs on their new EP ‘Vandrar’


After a successful venture into an acoustic soundscape Gåte returns to their full level of folk-rock with five wonderful and epic songs featured on an EP called Vandrar.

Vandrar consists of catchy, convincing and magnetic folk, which lures the listener in and drags you into a seductive soundscape where folk music plays on rock’s premises.

Gåte recently announced that one of the band’s original members, Sveinung Sundli, is no longer involved, which has also affected the completion of the EP, but Gåte‘s strong foundation and unique sound lives on to the highest degree, and the band in 2023 is super-motivated and ready-to-play!

They are looking forward to releasing new music and going on tour this autumn.

“As a band, we are really looking forward to moving forward, and are not too concerned with defining what Gåte should be or not be”, vocalist Gunnhild.

“We think that Gåte can accomplish a lot, and play with a lot of references, without making the foundation the band is built on or our history obsolete”

About working with lyricist Erlend Skjetne:

“I first got to know Erlend Skjetne when I read his book “Skare” and immediately thought that it would be exciting to work with him. Fortunately, the interest was mutual! We share the same fascination for folkloristics, and this is a collaboration I’m looking forward to continue”

As well as releasing a brand new EP, Gåte are also going on tour in Norway and Denmark
