2024 is shaping up to be a huge year for NJ hardcore heavyweights, GEL. The band recently joined Blue Grape Music, announced that their new EP, Persona, is due out on August 16th and released a roaring new single, Mirage. Today GEL are announcing a massive North American headlining tour in support of the record with support from MSPAINT, Destiny Bond and The Mall with tickets on sale here from the 23rd May. That’s in addition to their already scheduled UK & EU tour that starts this week, which includes festival appearances at Primavera Sound, Download, Roskilde and more.


Last year GEL released their debut full-length, Only Constant, drawing acclaim from fans and critics alike and skyrocketing them into the ranks of aggressive music’s most exciting new groups. Persona proves the band won’t be slowing down anytime soon. Produced & engineered by Jon Markson, the EP captures GEL embracing a bold sound without sacrificing even an ounce of the primal energy that makes their music so special. The band worked more collaboratively than ever before, tapping into the creative confidence gained through relentless touring to push themselves in new directions. The result is a widescreen version of GEL‘s urgent, stomping hardcore that only amplifies their innate ferocity.


“We really wanted to fill out the songs more and make them more nuanced. It’s a step forward, it’s different, it’s catchy, but it still really sounds like us.” (vocalist Sami Kaiser)
