Gallows Get "Rude" With New Video

UK BASED PUNKS RELEASE NEW VIDEO FOR HIDDEN TRACK, "STARING AT THE RUDE BOIS," FEATURING UK RAPPER LETHAL BIZZLE

Punk rock prodigies Gallows, have premiered their riotous new video for "Staring At The Rude Bois" on MySpace. Directed by Paul Gore (The Bravery, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club), the video was shot at a railway station in East Grinstead, England, and features famed UK rapper Lethal Bizzle.

The video for "Staring At The Rude Bois" will be featured on MySpace's music page on October 17th and can be viewed now on the group's page here: myspace.com/gallows.

Originally released by reggae/punk band The Ruts in 1980, "Staring At The Rude Bois" blends the Gallows' signature hardcore style and raucous attitude with Lethal Bizzle's hip-hop skills for a modern take on the punk pub anthem.

"Staring At The Rude Bois" can be found on the Gallows' critically acclaimed debut album, Orchestra of Wolves, which has been described as "a chainsaw symphony of relentlessly lurching hardcore riffs, punctuated by melodic skill and rhythmic complexity." (Filter) The song is also available for download on iTunes.

"Gallows' catchy hardcore punk is a bracing antidote to cookie-cutter, fashion-fueled music." - Alternative Press

"One of the most intense punk bands from the U.K. has come to remind good ol' American folks that great music is still supposed to sound like a sonic kick in the teeth." - Metal Edge

"This album makes it clear why Gallows are a major buzz band on their home turf and deserve to be received with just as much fanfare in the states." - Revolver

"Say hello to the house band for your next back-alley brawl." - SPIN
