Reading Festival 2013 in review (+ some photos)

August 28th, 2013

Reading Festival is a great festival. We go every year. We get drunk and we see as many bands as is feasibly, possibly doable. Occasionally, we remain lucid enough to actually take note of what’s going on around us and it’s at those moments that we made mental notes that we forget.

Anyhow, here are some things that happened that we’re going to talk about. Some of it is directly about bands but some of it might seem like constructive criticism that we should probably send straight to the promoter for him to ignore completely. We prefer it when you ignore us completely, so here goes.

Album: Gallows – Gallows

It still sounds like Gallows. That’s the important thing. Sure, Frank Carter – the angry ginger kid spitting blood and guts at the front – is gone, but it still sounds like Gallows. It’s the rule, isn’t it? Whoever shouts loudest gets all the credit but, despite the cries of many immediately after his departure, there was always more to this band than just one man. While their truly iconic former singer can never be replaced like-for-like, here are 32 minutes explaining why Gallows Mk II is seemingly here to stay nonetheless.

Here’s a clever opening line about how reports of Gallows’ demise have been greatly exaggerated and how we can all say, “RIP Gallows,” but also, “Viva Gallows.” Ultimately, this is Gallows. Is it the same as when the crazy ginger man was singing? No. Is it better? It’s different.

Is there anything better than a Thrash Hits Festival Splash Page? Yeah, loads of things but you won’t find the best online festival coverage on any of them. You’ll find that right here.

All our work from Sonisphere Festival 2011 is going be linked to from this page (eventually), so give it a bookmark or just don’t close it, because it’s all you’re going to need. Individual band coverage (interviews, photos, setlists and some tiny reviews), rumours, drinking games, stage times, dodgy photos of as many sexy ladies in various states of safe-for-work undress as we can legitimately get away with? It’s all here.

Live & Photos: Gallows @ London Notting Hill Arts Club – 26 April 2011

April 27th, 2011

Gallows are back in the UK for a while as they write their third record (can’t wait), pop off to Norway and Italy for some shows and play Sonisphere Festival 2011 (can’t wait), among other things so it was only natural that they’d play an extraordinarily tiny show in west London to 100 people, right? Yeah, obvs! We went down and even got some photos in between peeling our tshirts off and getting trodden on.

Special occasion? Need a card? Try cardxcore + win one

February 2nd, 2011

Christmas is done with but Valentine’s Day and Mother’s Day are almost here, which is why cardxcore is the tattoo-art-oriented greetings card company you need to know about. This collection of “Cards That Don’t Suck” is the brainchild of Gallows bassist, Stu Gili-Ross, so we asked him all about it…

  • What was the inspiration behind this new business venture?
  • “I was in California with my fiancee taking some time off from Gallows after Warped Tour 2009 and we were trying to think of something cool to do for our engagement party invitations. We soon realized that unless you wanted to spend quite a lot of money on something entirely bespoke and tailor-made, there was nothing really widely available that didn’t completely suck!
