City of Gates were a Durban based hardcore band, who formed in February 2008 and enjoyed a very short, yet fun spell in the hey-day of South African Hardcore, calling it a day on May 16th 2009, with members relocating. Lasting just over a year, the group of 5 young guys put out a completely DIY EP, as well as hitting South Africa’s major cities on tour as often as possible.
You may have seen them on line-up’s alongside Crossingpoint, Go! Go! Bronco, Straatligkinders, Truth and it’s Burden and Yes Sir! Mister Machine. City of Gates were also selected to open for Haste The Day on the Durban leg of their South African tour, as well as sharing the stage with other international artists such as CDC.
