Watford, England hardcore punk outfit Gallows are a determined lot. After the departure of front-man and founding memeber Frank Carter in 2011, many fans were concerned this would signal the end of the group. Instead, Carter went off to do his own thing in Pure Love while the group went in search of a new singer.
It was later in 2011 that rumours started to surface that Alexisonfire guitarist Wade MacNeil would take Carter’s place and that was all but confirmed when AOF made the surprising announcement that they were disbanding. NacNeil’s entry was made official and Gallows got to work on moving forward. By December, they released the Death is Birth EP and immediately got to work on their new album. Ten months later and we were finally treated to their third album.
The group are currently on tour having recently blasted through several Canadian cities. If you missed the show, here’s a taste of what you could have seen.
I’m especially impressed with Wade’s Hot Water Music tattoo. Nice.
