Biography

Hertfordshire, England (2005 – present)

Gallows are a band from Watford Hertfordshire, England, formed in 2005. They consist of Stuart Gili-Ross (bass), Laurent ‘Lags’ Barnard (guitar), Lee Barratt (drums), and Wade MacNeil (vocals). They were signed to Warner Bros.

Gallows released their debut album, Orchestra of Wolves, in 2006. It was distributed in the United States by independent label Epitaph in 2007. Epitaph founder and Bad Religion guitarist Brett Gurewitz called it the best hardcore album since Refused’s The Shape of Punk to Come. In January 2008, the band’s show at the House of Blues in Anaheim, California was canceled after Disney chose to ban them from performing—reportedly after listening to Orchestra of Wolves.

A second album by Gallows was first hinted by ex-vocalist Frank Carter during an interview with NME, where he stated that because Gallows was “a hobby I get paid for,” the band would likely be defunct by 2010. However, he confirmed that during this period, the band would record up to two additional albums.

Gallows released their major label debut, Grey Britain, on May 2, 2009. It was recorded by Garth Richardson. It debuted at #20 in the UK album chart. Frank Carter explained the premise of the album in an interview with Kerrang!: “Britain is fucked. Grey Britain is all about what’s going on socially, politically and economically in the UK and how it affects us.”

    I just noticed that it was Wade from Alexisonfire on vocals. These guys just went from average to amazing in my eyes (and ears)

    New guy sounds like the guy from Fucked up. I kind of liked the old guy cause of his british accent, it's what set them apart from most of the other hardcore bands I hear.

    yes it does!, I personally like both lead singers, but I understand what some of you guys mean, wade's voice is much more metalish than the punkish sound I'm used to, but somehow it just sounds wonderful still. I guess its a learning curve.
