ETA summer 2011
What they’re saying:
Both Frank Carter and Laurent Barnard have been tweeting about writing the new album. Lags holed himself up in the Welsh outback in the New Year to finish some riffs off and Frank said:
“This new @gallowsofficial record is coming together faster than a human pyramid at the Electric Ballroom.”
Thrash Hits verdict:
They were a UK hardcore phenomenon as soon as they got out of the blocks in 2005. They performed one the great “rock ‘n’ roll swindles” by signing to Warner Brothers for a shitload of money. They finished 2010 with two of the best shows (one for each album) of the year. By anyone. They’re still the most inspirational British hardcore band around and this album will be absolutely no different. We expect perhaps a slightly simpler album this time around (read: less strings) but exactly the same amount of fury and awesomeness. They’re a great band. This will be another great album.
