Cathartic black metal outfit GAEREA has partnered with Gimme TV to air their first ever virtual concert on Saturday, February 13 @ 20:00 CET! In addition to performing their sophomore record ‘Limbo’ in full for the first time ever, the band will also be selling exclusive merch and will be present for a live Q&A in the chat. Tickets for the event are $10.00 and are available now via the official Gimme App at THIS LOCATION.
Launched early last fall, GIMME METAL TV combines the power of MTV-like linear broadcasting with livestreaming, and offers music videos, short form artist-created content, long form music documentaries, movies, and so much more.
Issues GIMME CEO Tyler Lenane of the channel’s inaugural virtual event, “GIMME is going to do for ticketed live events what it did for metal music streaming: reinvent the experience by focusing on building community around the music. Doing our first ticketed event with Season Of Mist is super exciting. They are a total force when it comes to discovering new and unique talent in metal. I think Gaerea is a great example of that. Season Of Mist have been amazing partners to GIMME since we started, and it only makes sense that we should be working together on this new service.”

Something rises in the bleak and blackened skies of society as we know it. Vortex community GAEREA are about to bestow their Undying Sigil to the masses, with their brand-new full length ‘Limbo’!
GAEREA is a black metal quintet from Portugal. Emerging in the beginning of 2016, the band released their first (self-titled) EP on November 11, 2016 through Everlasting Spew Records. The EP received many praises from the worldwide press, and it was not long before the first full length “Unsettling Whispers” (2018) was presented.
With that, GAEREA had the pleasure to perform and tour festivals in Europe and China, including performances with Jupiterian in April 2019 and a headlining Chinese tour in May 2019. The band already performed at festivals like SWR Barroselas Metalfest (PT), De Mortem et Diabolum (DE), Throne Fest (BE), Frantic Fest (IT), Eresia Metal Fest (IT), Amplifest (PT) and many more. During the fall of 2019, the band did an extensive tour with label mates NUMENOREAN under the Doomstar Bookings wing throughout Europe.
Are you finally ready for the tale of the Fallen Society and the journey to the vast Void, the only good in Life? Let us begin then. In the first hopeless circle, on too great and Undeniable Nothingness. WE ARE GAEREA.
