Out Friday September 4th: Young Empires’ debut record, “The Gates”

If I had been more on top of music, all you Music For Lunchers would have had the pleasure of streaming the debut full length from Young Empires, The Gates. However, if you’re seeing this before Friday, September 4th, you can do so! Regardless, the record is OUT Friday September 4th on VotivThe Gates is a jam packed record, with a host of powerful, tracks, ranging from straight up dance tracks like “So Cruel” to punching, epic tracks like “Mercy” and “Never Die Young”, to lighthearted pop tunes like “Sunshine.” It was team produced by Stephen “Koz” Kozmeniuk (Kendrick Lamar, Nicki Minaj, Madonna), Jimmy Messer (AWOLNATION) and Kevin Seaton (Snoop Lion, Active Child), so as you would imagine, The Gates is a force to be reckoned with!

Young Empires is no stranger to Music For Lunch as I’ve had the pleasure of following the release of many of their singles. Apparently this Toronto-based band who began their musical adventure back in 2013 is taking over Canada and spreading quickly to the States.

I know it’s late for this BUT, you still have a few hours left to give this record a taste before you purchase it tomorrow because I know you’ll want to!


And don’t worry, they’ll be touring North America this fall!
