GALLOWS with BARN BURNER
GALLOWS are finally ready to unleash the next phase of their punk rock attack on the world with the highly-anticipated release to their successful Grey Britain album (2009). The self-titled LP is set for release on September 11, 2012 via the band’s own label Venn Records, an exclusive signing to Universal Music Canada, the country’s largest music company.
Gallows is notably fronted by Wade MacNeil, the former guitarist/vocalist of JUNO and four-time Platinum award winning Alexisonfire. MacNeil took over with a vengeance after former front man Frank Carter left the band last August. Rounding out the band are Stephen Carter (guitar), Laurent Barnard (guitar), Stuart Gili-Ross (bass), and Lee Barratt (drums).
The latest album was recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by long-term friends Thomas Mitchener and Steve Sears at Broadfields Studio in Watford in May this year. “We made this record self-titled as it musically defines the band known as Gallows as we exist today,” explain the band. “This is our statement of intent, our laugh in the face of those who said Gallows were done when in reality we're just warming up,” they continue. “We couldn't feel more vindicated and proud.”
Gallows are ready and fired-up to take their new album on the road. Known for putting on a killer live show, the band will bring their addictive, raucous energy to Canada in November, following their UK run (dates below). Montreal’s Barn Burner has been announced as main support. A free download of the new, ferocious track ‘Last June’ is available from www.gallows.co.uk. Kicking off with a pounding fuzzed-out bass and drum attack, the song gives listeners a taste of what’s to come.
