Heaven's Gate formed in the wake of the now-defunct New Jersey band Sweet Bulbs, when guitarists Michael Sheffield and Jack Wolf drafted vocalist Jess Paps, bassist Alex Cvetovich, and drummer Patrick Stankard to form a self-described "powergaze" outfit. Since then, Heaven's Gate have released the High Riser EP (from which we heard fuzzy jangler "Pogo") and recorded a debut full-length dubbed Transmuting. The Brooklynites have already let go a few songs from their upcoming LP (including the aptly named "Drone" and somewhat less aptly named "Screams"), and now they've shared the entire 11-track effort. Pre-order offers for Transmuting are currently available through Inflated Records
