Los Angeles-based hard rock quintet LIONS AT THE GATE have released their new track “Find My Way” featuring Tatiana Shmayluk of Jinjer plus the accompanying music video. Speaking on the release, frontman Cristian Machado shared:
“With “Find My Way”, we tried to break all the formulaic rules on this one. Pushed the boundaries, took it to extremes. In the end, we realized how rewarding it was fitting intensely contrasting musical elements into one track. And it is a killer heavy track that also offers a beautifully haunting melody. From the onset it seemed perfect for Tatiana’s voice, the fact that she wound up on the track is mind-blowing. Her voice is absolutely stunning and it is a huge honor having her on. Lyrically the song walks the line between fear, surrender, and the will to overcome. At the time of writing the album, I felt pinned by so many things gone wrong in my life. I remember I just held on to hope and faith long enough till I found a place of safe surrender. A place where I could slowly lift the weight off, finally be untethered. It’s a familiar theme that resonates throughout the whole album, the will to overcome, the power to see the beauty in a world that is unforgiving.”

A familiar signature sound, but with a fresh and rejuvenated take, former Ill Niño members Cristian Machado (vocals), guitarists Diego Verduzco and Ahrue Luster (ex-Machine Head) along with bassist Stephen Brewer (ex-Westfield Massacre) and drummer Fern Lemus (ex-Silence The Messenger) are LIONS AT THE GATE.
Moving on from their previous projects, these musical forces made the most of their creative freedom and newfound inspiration. Machado’s powerful vocals are better than ever as he soars with a steady balance and grace with his aggressive scowl as well as embracing his softer side. What is not lost in this band’s musical palette are the dynamics of their trademark heaviness, supported by the foundation of big choruses to balance the crushing rhythm within the songs.
