Clearly those cheeky scamps, Gallows are back in the country because we’re writing something about them. This time, their long-term sponsors and supporters, Relentless have made some sort of documentary about the band and it does look rather splendid.

Focusing on the UK punks’ exploits in America, the video bit will be one exciting chapter in a feature length doco called Lives Of The Artists and you can watch the trailer below. Relentless say the following and more on their website.

Sodium and water. The two don’t go. Drop a lump of one into the other and the metallic element will react explosively, the bigger pieces igniting in situ, the smaller ones spinning off unpredictably like uprooted catherine wheels on bonfire night. Sodium is as volatile as they come. And so too are Gallows, except instead of water, use an unsuspecting American public. The equation for such an experiment reads as follows:

Gallows + Americans weaned on pop-by-numbers = Volatile and enraged portrait of punk rock soul

The result, as the equation states, is a compelling portrait of punk rock soul. Science never lies.”

They’re not wrong. At all! We can’t wait to see Gallows on tour with Trash Talk and Sharks. Go check em out!
