As a disenfranchised D.I.Y. punk band from the U.K., Gallowsfuse rage with disgust with their social surroundings in the same fashion as their forefathers, the Sex Pistols and the Clash, to add a genuine urgency to their punk revival. In 2005, Frank Carter (vocals), Steph Carter (guitar/vocals), Laurent Barnard (guitars/keys/vocals), Stuart Gili-Ross (bass), and Lee Barratt (drums) formed the band after digesting a steady diet of ’80s hardcore staples like Black Flag and Minor Threat and underground bands like Swing Kids and JR EwingFrank Carter attacks his songs with an unforced intense venomous scream while confronting perilous topics like date rape, street violence, and simmering anxieties boiling within. Gallows made their debut album, Orchestra of Wolves, on a minimal budget in September 2006 after signing to the Nottingham label In at the Deep End Records. In March 2007, shortly after a SXSW gig in Austin, Gallows secured a record deal with Epitaph Records, which made plans to re-release the band’s first album, with three bonus tracks, on North American soil that July. Two years later, the band returned with its sophomore album, Grey Britain. In 2011, the band announced it had parted ways with singer Carter. He was soon replaced by Alexisonfire‘s Wade MacNeil who made his debut on the band’s eponymous third studio album in 2012. Continuing to evolve, Gallows stripped back to raw garage punk sound for their fourth album 2015’s Desolation Sounds.
