Having just signed to No Sleep Records and with their fourth album on the horizon, Gatherers continue to defy the constrictions of genre. We talk to vocalist Rich Weinberger.

Tell us a little about yourself. Where the name came from, how long you’ve been going for and anything else new fans would want to know.

Gatherers started in 2009. Adam (Cichocki), our drummer is the only original member.  The band became more serious with the release of our second LP Quiet World which came with us signing to Equal Vision Records.

In 2020 Gatherers is Adam (drums), Anthony Gesa (guitars), Siddhu Anandalingam (bass), Rob Talalai (guitar) and myself (vocals).  We are currently mixing our fourth LP, recorded and mixed by Adam at Timber Studios. 

Anthony manages the band as part of Lesser Matters while I handle the band’s art direction.

What was your very first memory of music?

The first album I bought with my own money as a kid was “Battle of Los Angeles” by RATM. Had no prior knowledge of rock music let alone Rage.  Bought it strictly for the album cover and upon listening, quickly realized it was a life changing moment.  

You’ve toured with some crazy cool bands in the bands, but is there a band or artist that you’d love to collaborate with and/or open for on tour?

We open for The Blood Brothers followed by a split 7″ with Q And Not U.

Speaking of live shows, what’s your favourite story from a show so far?

Singing the end of ‘Floater’ with ETID three nights in a row. That was pretty surreal.

You’re on the cusp of releasing your forth album – what was the most fun and most challenging aspects in the studio?

This album came together almost painlessly. We all had a lot of fun writing it, being around each other and simply not giving it too much thought.



Rising to the challenge, Gatherers have put together an electrifying collection of songs that best encapsulates the artists and music that inspire them as a band.
