Two Gallants 3rd Full-Length Album, ‘Two Gallants’, in stores.

“Two Gallants have emerged from the mess and continue, with this, their third LP, to blow all other current drum-guitar combos out of the water. That’s right – all of them.” – VICE Magazine

“A soul cleansing anthem…Two Gallants make good on their abundant promise with this third LP.” – MOJO (4-star review)

“But even when they’re tearing through an electric scorcher that sounds like the handiwork of a much larger band, their archaic, frontier-era Americana comes off as more pleasant than foreboding.” – DETAILS

“Two Gallants’ devastating punk-folk-blues is like a nail gun: it rivets you to where you stand. It’s viciously cathartic.” – The Stranger (Seattle, WA)

“Splendidly splenetic balladry” – Uncut (4-star review)

“Two Gallants play out their own brand of audio vignettes, producing thoughtful and moving songs with a sound conjuring tumbleweed poetry and the vast plains of the Wild West.” – CMJ

“Stephens and Vogel were weaving a magical spell. Stephens played guitar in a folk/classical arpeggio style that enabled him to pick out a bass line with his thumb while tracing the melody with his fingers, while Vogel added a heavy funk emphasis to the rhythm. Mixing folk, country, blues and alternative Americana influences, they skillfully welded the songs together.” – The Times UK (4-star review)

In a world where bigger is often considered better and quality is sacrificed with ease, Two Gallants have risen against the tide with their cathartic, stripped-down sound and depth of material to forge an intimate bond with a wide array of fans. Through the shared experience of growing up together in San Francisco, Two Gallants have pushed each other into a unique and timeless spectrum of music. They craft emotional, visceral, intelligent songs that captivate listeners with a unique breed of folk, country blues and punk.

Well known for their impassioned live sets and and two solid albums (2004’s ‘The Throes’ and 2006’s ‘What The Toll Tells’), Two Gallants have garnered remarkable praise. But it’s the pair of 2007 releases, the acoustic EP ‘Scenery of Farewell’ and self-titled third full-length, that finds the band coming of age in the studio. Produced by with Alex Newport (Mars Volta, At the Drive-In) at San Francisco’s Hyde Street Studios, Two Gallants have created their most fully-realized, cohesive piece of work to date.
