Heaven's Gateway Drugs

Submit Correction Claim Band

The origin of Heaven's Gateway Drugs is as hazy as the music the band makes. At some point in late 2011 3 friends wrote a handful of songs that would end up being the first HGD EP. A few demos were made and some time passed and eventually the demos found their way into the hands of a local promoter who immediately asked the band to open for the Night Beats who were coming through Fort Wayne in March of 2012. Inspired, the guys found a bass player and begin working on new material for the show. In the audience the night of that first show was Ben Carr, an enigmatic - shaman-esque local with a very unique worldview. During the band's set, Ben was overcome by visions and insights into the soul of mankind. He claims that then and there he understood his calling in life and asked the band after the show if he could use the band as platform to spread his message. Soon, the band quickly started playing around the midwest, taking Ben's message with them.

This band isn't local to Cincinnati, as far as we know. If this isn't right, maybe you want to claim this band or submit a correction?
