    'Gala' is the first new album from Joel RL Phelps & The Downer Trio since 2004′s ‘Customs’. Joel, guitarist/bassist Robert Mercer & drummer William Herzog have returned with what might be their most powerful work to date.

Released by Damnably in Europe Released by 12XU in US (Vinyl) Released by Triple Crown Audio Recordings in Canada
