Former Gallows man will release his new band's first effort in October
The band, who also feature former Hope Conspiracy guitarist Jim Carroll in their line-up, have named their debut full-length effort as 'Anthems' and have confirmed it will be released in October.

It does exactly what it says on the tin."
