GALLOWS To Invade The US In 2008

THE UK'S MOST BUZZWORTHY BAND ANNOUNCES US TOUR

UK hardcore group Gallows will embark on their first ever headlining US tour in January. Fronted by NME magazine's 2007 pick for "coolest man in rock 'n' roll," Frank Carter and crew return to the US in support of their debut album, Orchestra of Wolves.

For the last nine months Gallows have crisscrossed the globe ravaging venues from Australia to the US, where the group made an unforgettable debut in March with two shows at SXSW followed by a headlining slot on the Van's Warped Tour and a brief US tour opening for Bad Religion in October.

"An anthemic mix of early '80s hardcore and pure stage aggression that made watching this group of Brit punks like watching a pack of veracious wolves devour its prey." - SPIN

Gallows' onstage melee has been described as a non-stop barrage of adrenaline fueled chaos, where the band's unruly antics often commandeer entire venues. Led by their rowdy frontman Carter, who spends most shows entrenched in the circle pit, Gallows provide an intensely skillful soundtrack to the mayhem with the blistering dual guitar assault from Laurent Barnard and Steph Carter and rhythmic rollicking of bassist Stu Gili Ross and drummer Lee Barratt. Circling back for their fourth visit, Gallows are ready to get up close and personal with their American fans.

Don't miss 2008's most electrifying tour!
