Watford punks' first album without Frank Carter will drop on September 10
Gallows have announced that they will release their third studio album in September.
The album, which is self-titled, is the band’s first effort with former Alexisonfire man Wade MacNeil as their singer. MacNeil replaced former frontman Frank Carter in July 2011, with Carter having since gone on to form new band Pure Love.
The album contains a total of 12 tracks, with the album’s lead-off single ‘Last June’ now available for free download from the band’s official website Gallows.co.uk. You can also hear the track by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
‘Gallows’ has been produced, mixed and mastered by Spycatcher members Thomas Mitchener and Steve Sears at Watford’s Broadfields Studio and will be released on September 10 via the band’s new label Venn Records in partnership with PIAS Recordings.
Speaking about the album, the band said: “We made this record self-titled as it musically defines the band known as Gallows as we exist today. This is the first of many releases to come from the house of Venn Records, our imprint, hijacked from PIAS those long standing backers of independent rock n roll. This our statement of intent, our laugh in the face of those who said Gallows were done when in reality we’re just warming up. We couldn’t feel more vindicated and proud.”
The tracklisting for ‘Gallows’ is as follows:
‘Everybody Loves You (When You’re Dead)’
‘Vapid Adolescent Blues’
‘Cult Of Mary’
‘Cross Of Lorraine’
Gallows have also announced a full UK tour for October, playing a total of 15 shows across the country.
The tour kicks off on October 3 in Brighton at the Haunt venue and runs until October 19, when the band headline London’s Underworld. You can watch the video for the band’s previous single ‘Mondo Chaos’ by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.
