Gallows' brand new EP, Chains/Wristslitter, is officially out today! This two-track release is available on 7" vinyl and digital formats. Purchase and/or stream it at the following online outlets:

These two new songs from internationally-based hardcore standbys Gallows are their first since 2012's self-titled album, which reintroduced the band to the world with new vocalist and former Alexisonfire guitarist/current Black Lungs frontman Wade MacNeil. Though now stripped down to a four-piece, the band is clearly doing more with less: "Chains" is one of the heaviest songs in their catalog, an anthemic sledgehammer backed on the B-side by the groovier but equally snarling "Wristslitter". This newest incarnation of the act seems to vaguely parallel the progressive tendencies of contemporaries like Fucked Up and Blacklisted without compromising their core ferociousness and snide, socially aware bite.

Track listing:
1. Chains
2. Wristslitter
