The Skinny: Dine Alone Records is excited to announce the debut studio LP from Gateway Drugs. The L.A. based four-piece will release Magick Spells in Canada April 7. Check out the lead track “Friday’s Are For Suckers” above and see below for LP details as well as the band’s upcoming Canadian tour dates.

The question that has been keeping us up at night all these years – what if Sonic Youth and The Birthday Party got together and had kids? The answer is Gateway Drugs. Hailing from the dark streets of sunny Los Angeles, Gabe, Noa, and Liv Niles are the real live children of bassist Prescott Niles of The Knack, who rose to fame with their 1979 classic hit “My Sharona.” Blues Williams, a sworn in blood brother, rounds out the band.
