GALLOWS RETURN TO NORTH AMERICA FOR SUPPORT TOURS WITH AFI AND FLOGGING MOLLY IN OCTOBER

Fresh off their earth scorching appearance on this summer’s Vans Warped tour, UK hardcore band GALLOWS will return to North America in October to hit the road with AFI in the U.S. and Flogging Molly in Canada. The tours will criss-cross the continent from October 2nd through the 29th. Consider yourself warned:

“A Gallows concert is a demolition derby with no rules…volatility and unpredictability.” – Inked Magazine

“[Warped Tour’s] best set of the day…The British quintet plays a thrilling and venomous take on hard core…Frank Carter, a sinewy redhead with a sneer equal to that of Sex Pistols’ frontman John Lydon. – The Los Angeles Times

GALLOWS will hit the road in support of Grey Britain, their second full-length album and U.S. debut on Sire Records, which was released this past May 5th, 2009 and made an immediate and indelible impression:

“Gallows’ ‘Grey Britain,’ is a savage kick to the cranium – full of passion, fury and undeniable punk power.” – Guitar Edge Magazine

“’Grey Britain’ harbors an impressive amount of vitriol within its grooves…there’s a grimy rage coating the proceedings that’s universal in appeal…feels like the end credits have just rolled to a wakeup call in widescreen.” – Decibel Magazine

“Right now, Gallows is the only British band that matters.” – Aquarian Weekly

The 13-song strong album was recorded at London’s RAK studios with producer Garth ‘GGGarth’ Richardson (Rise Against, Rage Against The Machine) and is even more bloody, brutal, and pissed-off with the current Home Counties conditions than the band’s critically revered 2006 debut Orchestra of Wolves. That may be difficult to believe…until you hear this album and witness the band’s absolutely peerless pure adrenaline-fuelled live sonic/physical attack. GALLOWS may well be the last truly unpredictable and dangerous live working band on the planet. See for yourself. Confirmed tour dates are listed below.

GALLOWS formed in 2005 and immediately set the UK on fire with their politically charged lyrical perspective and full-on, non-stop commitment to getting the message across by any means necessary. In 2007, GALLOWS won the Kerrang! Magazine Award for Best British Newcomer. The single from their debut album In The Belly Of The Shark, appears on Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock game. Our advice to you: Don’t miss the opportunity to see GALLOWS live. No one comes close.
