June 30th will see the welcome return of one of the most notorious and thrilling punk bands to ever come out of the UK, Gallows. The band's new 7inch, Chains, will be released June 30th by Bridge Nine in the U.S.A. (and the band's own Venn Records elsewhere) and b-side track "Wristslitter" has premiered today on Noisey.com.
Additionally, the title track off of Gallows' new 7inch was recently showcased as Zane Lowe's 'Hottest Record In The World' on BBC Radio One, and the band has confirmed a myriad of live performances throughout July in the UK. Gallows are coiled and sprung and ready to detonate once again.
"It's been a quite year so far for us all as we've been busy on new adventures and projects, but when we got together in February it was shocking how quickly ideas were flowing", explains guitarist Laurent Barnard.
Inspiration flowed very quickly. The band roared into life and the proof can be clearly heard on "Chains". Partnering up in the United States once again with Bridge Nine Records (and releasing elsewhere on the band's own label, Venn) as a digital download and limited edition colored 7inch vinyl, "Chains" starts slow and soft, lulling the listener into a false sense of security before the band come pounding in and level the place.
