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.”

    Dude... you're so out of touch if you think Gallows suck now. At least Gallows progresses and grows as a bad, as really any band should, trying new ideas and they didn't suck either, they sound good on their new shit. Had they kept their other doofus vocalist they'd be the same shit as they were on the first two records, rehashing the same old shit. I think he desperately wanted to be a rockstar and when certain members of the band didn't want to be radio rock that's when he split and look at him now. Pure Love was a total disaster. They were simply a curiosity, the only reason people listened to what they put out was to see what the dude from Gallows is doing now. And they had like 2 radio friend rock songs and an entire record of filler, welcome to radio rock land if you're even on any radio station's radar, which I doubt. The Gallows we have now, is the Gallows we always deserved.

    Orchestra of Wolves and Grey Britain are fuckin masterpieces. Gallows sucks so much since then. Shame. "Grey Britain is fuckin dead. So cut our throats and our lives, let's fuckin start again."

    New Gallows should be tight and a welcome change. It's not like their old shit will disappear or be dropped from the setlist. Don't like the new sound? Pity for you, don't listen and listen to their old shit, easy as that.

    Yes, Bonfire Season is different but it's genuinely a good song. I can't fault any Gallows album so far and I'm excited for Desolation Sounds
