June 30th will see the welcome return of one of the most notorious and thrilling punk bands to ever come out of the UK. Returning with a new single, "Chains" (which was recently showcased as Zane Lowe's 'Hottest Record In The World' on BBC Radio 1), and myriad live performances throughout July in the UK, Gallows are coiled and sprung and ready to detonate once again.
"It's been a quite year so far for us all as we've been busy on new adventures and projects, but when we got together in February it was shocking how quickly ideas were flowing," explains guitarist Laurent Barnard.
Inspiration flowed very quickly. The band roared into life and the proof can be clearly heard on "Chains". Partnering up in the United States once again with Bridge Nine Records (and releasing elsewhere on the band's own label, Venn) as a digital download and limited edition colored 7-inch vinyl, "Chains" starts slow and soft, lulling the listener into a false sense of security before the band come pounding in and level the place.
"Chains" is yet another step forward for a band who, since their inception in 2005, have never rested on their laurels or stayed still. And Gallows are back again to take it even further.
The 7-inch (with b-side "Wristslitter") is available for pre-order now here
