Product Description

Product Description

Gallows are finally ready to unleash the next phase of their punk rock attack on the world with the highly-anticipated release of their follow-up to 2009’s ‘Grey Britain’ album. Released via the band’s own label Venn Records (in partnership with [PIAS] Recordings), this self-titled album was recorded, produced, mixed and mastered by long-term friends Thomas Mitchener and Steve Sears. “We made this record self-titled as it musically defines the band known as Gallows as we exist today,” explain the band. “This is the first of many releases to come from the house of Venn Records, our imprint, hijacked from PIAS those long standing backers of independent rock n roll.” “This our statement of intent, our laugh in the face of those who said Gallows were done when in reality we're just warming up,” they continue. “We couldn't feel more vindicated and proud.”

BBC Review

First things first: are they the same band? No, of course not. When Frank Carter left Gallows to concentrate on being one half of Pure Love, the Watford punks were relieved of an iconic frontman who, despite his love/hate relationship with the limelight, never lost his own voice and stage moves that a raft of imitators have stolen since.

Wisely, the men he split from regrouped and refocused with Wade MacNeil. The 28-year-old Ontario native, an integral part of Canadian post-hardcore trailblazers Alexisonfire for a decade, arrives as a friend and flecked with the kind of tattoos you don’t acquire without knowing your punk rock. The thought of the two parties pooling their talents is an appetite-whetting one and, despite a year of hard touring, they arguably haven’t truly had a chance to do shine until now.

Crucially and brilliantly, MacNeil sounds nothing like his predecessor. That said, he has no problem adjusting to Gallows’ wavelength. Punk bands always sound best when they’re taking on the world, and chief songwriter Laurent Barnard sounds like he’s on a mission to remind everyone of his credentials.

It only takes two songs for the blood-twisting riffs of old to re-emerge on Everybody Loves You (When You’re Dead), which is followed by MacNeil spinning a web and a punk rock cliché on its head with Last June, a broadside at the treatment G20 protesters received in Toronto in 2010. The latter’s one of their best songs to date, and one they couldn’t have written without him.

The avoidance of the ‘everything sucks’ polemic that wrote previous LP Grey Britain’s lyrics into an angry, lonely corner on occasion shouldn’t be underreported or underrated. MacNeil never stares into the abyss for too long, preferring to flick it contemptuous glances as he surfs his vocals over the likes of Outsider Art and Depravers, two more of several sinewy, white knuckle thrill rides. Tellingly, nobody ever dared write Gallows off in print and anyone wondering why now has a 32-minute explanation. This is music with a pure heart, a clean conscience and the snap of a steel-spring trap.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Re-imagining of the Gallows 9 Oct 2012
Format:Audio CD
I thought this album would suck, the EP with their new vocalist seemed to lack the magic the Gallows had created on previous efforts, but was I surprised, the Vocals are fantastic, just as snarling as Frank Carter's and the songs are fun. They are catchy, but not commercial a hard trick to pull off. Finally an album I hear that isn't to up it-self just good rockin' punk revitalises the genre that's full of over-produced bands.

4.0 out of 5 stars very good indeed 23 Sep 2012
By Adam30
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
i was a bit unsure what to expect from this new album considering how i really like what frank brought to the band, what i must say is this is not the gallows of grey britain but a completely different beast. Still a very angry album with some balls out riffs but with some new twists and turns. i first heard last june and just loved the aggression of it. the rest of the album follows suit and does not tire in pace or anything. I have enjoyed listening to this album over and over and still have not got board. i would suggest anyone to check this record out as it's still the gallows we know and love but with a different twist. good work boys

Absolutely love this album, not a single dud track! Favourites would be - Everybody Loves You, Last June, Austere, Depraves, Odessa + Cross of Lorraine!

If you're not sure because of the new vocalist Wade, stop hesitating and just check it out! Honest.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Gallows of old 26 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Seemly put just not as good as the first two albums with Frank at the helm. It's not just because Frank and this lyrics are absent, I just don't believe it is as well written. Average.
