Bridge Nine Records to release new Gallows album

Official press release: The UK's Gallows is a band that needs little introduction. Described, variously, as 'The best British punk band since The Clash' and 'The British music industry's biggest mistake,' the Hertfordshire hardcore crew first emerged from the fecund UK underground punk scene in 2005. Inspired by Refused, At The Drive-In, JR Ewing and Swing Kids, their ferocious, feral 2006 debut Orchestra Of Wolves offered a harsh, unflinching dissection of suffocating suburban mores, shot through with images of small-town violence, desperation and disgust. Its follow-up, 2009's apocalyptic Grey Britain, was darker, denser and even more brutally incisive, a lacerating, none-more-bleak state of the nation address, speaking of a once proud nation on its knees, riven by prejudice, greed, ignorance and fear. December 2011's Death Is Birth EP heralded the arrival of a new Gallows: united, uncompromised, unfettered, unbroken. With old friend (and former Alexisonfire guitarist) Wade MacNeil installed as the band's new frontman, the seven inch EP was a defiant declaration of independence, 459 seconds of apoplectic punk rock fury landing like an adrenaline spike to the heart. Now, Gallows is excited to announce the release of a brand new album, which will be available in the U.S. from Bridge Nine Records early this Fall. Eleven new tracks were recorded at BroadfieldStudio in Watford, the band's hometown, in May with producers Thomas Mitchener and Steve Sears and feature some of Gallows best, and most pissed off, work to date. This new album will mark Gallows' first collaboration with Bridge Nine, which has been a long time in the making. The band commented, "We are excited to become a part of Bridge Nine Records. Having been following the releases of label since Chris started it, it's cool to become a part of that legacy. We plan to be touring the USA a lot on this new record and we're happy to have found our new American home." Bridge Nine owner Chris Wrenn said, "Our partnership with Gallows has been in the works for a little while now. All of us here are fans of the band and this new record is on point." He continued, "I think the best way to sum up our collaboration with Gallows is: 'It's about time.'"

"Walked by this band at warped tour 2009, sounded like the audio from 2 guys 1 horse and the incredible hulk playing instruments" You went to Warped Tour 2009. Your [shitty] comment is invalid.

Saw Gallows perform with their new vocalist and they did some new stuff. Pretty bad and sounds like they're trying too hard to be cool.
