The Gallows as they stand:
Wade MacNeil: Vocals/Guitar
Laurent Barnard: Guitar/Keys/Vocals
Stuart Gili-Ross: Bass
Lee Barratt: Drums
No-one ever said it was going to be easy. But nothing worth having comes without a fight. So you roll with the punches. You stay focussed, stay on point. Biding your time, until the time is right. Knowing that soon your day will come.
For Gallows, that time is now.
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.
