We’ve written a weekly article on Gallows for the past nine months or so purely by default. The finest band to emerge from British punk in recent memory have been touring, interviewing, recording, shouting or doing something to warrant being written about. We like that.
Having returned from a three-month stint across the USA on the Warped Tour, they played third from the top of the bill on the Radio 1/NME stage at Reading & Leeds Festivals over the weekend and they were bloody brilliant.
The big top tent was rammed and highlights included Frank Carter (pictured above) harping on about why the NME might become good again, Frank Carter sadly failing to set a greyscale Union Flag alight during closing song, ‘Crucifucks’ and Frank Carter shedding a tear after a highly charged ‘Orchestra Of Wolves’. It was a heroic set and it’s righteous that 10,000 (ish) people watched it.
We’re bloody glad to have them back. The Yanks can keep their cheeseburgery hands off them for the time being!
