Review: The Departure “Gateways”


The Departure, a band from Salt Lake City labeled as punk/crossover have released an EP titled Gateways. The band has already flirted with early success, securing opening spots for Cold War Kids as well as playing at several festivals.

The album mixes a lot of genres, not sticking to any one formula; instead, putting their full talents on display. The lead song, “For The Best” should be a staple for your pop-punk playlist.
