Chicago-based progressive thrash band TWELFTH GATE has reunited with original singer Scott Huffman and guitarist Rich Knight. The group’s comeback show will take place on Saturday, December 10 at Reggie’s Rock Club (17+ event) in Chicago. Rounding out the live lineup will be original bass player Rob Such, original live rhythm guitarist Gabe DeLaurie, and drummer Sean Scala.
TWELFTH GATE is planning on performing its debut album, “Summoning” (2003, Crash Music), in its entirety, along with a select track or two off the band’s sophomore CD, “Threshold Of Revelation” (2006, Season of Mist).
Commented Rob: “Jamming with Rich and Scott again has made me realize how much I really missed the old TWELFTH GATE lineup. The chemistry we have, both musically and as friends, just makes jamming that much more fun! Also, bringing Gabe back into the fold, with his flawless execution of our songs, and adding the monster of a drummer in Sean, has brought a new life back into the band. I believe that without all these players, the reunion would not have been possible. Rich and I have also always been a great writing team, and the material we’re already coming up with is proof positive of that fact! I can’t wait to finish some of these new ideas and have Scott add his unquestionable creativity into the mix. Once everything gets rolling again, there will be nothing stopping us… TWELFTH GATE is back!”
