GALLOWS Sign With WARNER BROS. RECORDS
Hertfordshire, U.K. hardcore punk rock heroes GALLOWS have inked a worldwide deal with Warner Bros. Records. Their second full-length album and first for Sire in the USA, entitled "Grey Britain", will be released on May 5, 2009. The 13 thematically-linked-song-strong album was recorded at London's RAK studios with producer Garth "GGGarth" Richardson (RISE AGAINST, RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE) and is even more bloody, brutal and pissed off than the band's critically acclaimed 2006 debut, "Orchestra Of Wolves".
GALLOWS formed in 2005 and immediately set the U.K. on fire with its politically charged lyrical perspective and full-on, non-stop commitment to getting the message across by any means necessary. In 2007, the band won the Kerrang! magazine award for "Best British Newcomer." The single from the debut album, "In The Belly Of The Shark", appears in the Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock game.
GALLOWS has set its sights on the U.S. and will join the Vans Warped Tour this year.
