Gallows have spoken about life with new singer Wade MacNeil, revealing that they feel like they're "starting from the beginning again".

MacNeil, formerly lead guitarist in Canadian hardcore band Alexisonfire, replaced the band's former frontman Frank Carter earlier this summer. Carter has also started a new outfit called Pure Love, who are currently recording their debut album.

Bassist Stuart Gili-Ross said that the band's recording debut with MacNeil, which is a new four-track EP titled 'Death Is Birth', is "unapologetically hardcore punk".

Speaking to Kerrang!, Gili-Ross said of 'Death Is Birth': "It's very fast, thrashy and unapologetically hardcore punk. Wade brings a fresh approach to the music and he listens to a lot more old school punk than us. On top of that, his voice is obviously totally different to Frank's".

Gili-Ross added that the band, who are currently touring North America, were really pleased with how things were going with MacNeil.

He said: "There's a really good vibe with the band at the moment. It all feels fresh, like we're starting from the beginning again. The EP's out in less than a month, but we don't want to rest on our laurels with this release. This is just a taster of what's to come."

'Death Is Birth' will be released on December 5 in digital form and as a limited-edition physical copy on December 13. It is available for pre-order from
