GAGE is best described as powerful and uncompromising with roots based in alternative rock, punk, rap and hardcore. GAGE's music is as hard hitting as it is melodic and is based around intensely emotional songs. The band's live performance is equally as powerful, physical and intense. GAGE has headlined all the major venues in Boston including shows at the Paradise Rock Club, Axis, Mama Kin, Bill's Bar, and the Middle East. GAGE has also opened up for such acts as The Mighty Mighty Bosstones and Godsmack.

GAGE was selected from over 10,000 entries to play in the Ticketmaster Showcase at Lupo's Heartbreak Hotel in Providence, Rhode Island. GAGE was also selected for the Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands 3 by TAXI from over 5000 entries to compete in live competition at the Middle East. GAGE won the Battle of the Bands at the Middle East in Cambridge and played the Northampton stop on the VANS WARPED Tour. Round 2 continued and GAGE was selected from over 90 bands to compete in the semi-finals. GAGE played the semi-finals with 16 other bands from across North America at Tree's in Dallas, Texas. Gage also played the VANS WARPED TOUR at SUFFOLK DOWNS in Boston.

GAGE has released three CDs which include "He Will Come," "Scissor," and the "Silent Movie Type." A fourth album was recorded but never released except for the single "Sport".

GAGE fused a powerful wall of guitars with merging musical styles to create strong memorable songs. The band refused to attach labels to itself; simply writing and recording without compromise. GAGE is an impact band offering songs, commitment, and intensity.
