REPENTANCE Feat. STUCK MOJO, Ex-SOIL Members: 'Enter The Gallows' Single Available

Earlier this year, REPENTANCE, the new band featuring former SOIL and DIRGE WITHIN guitarist Shaun Glass and STUCK MOJO frontman Robby J. Fonts, hit the scene with a pair of back-to-back demos, released exclusively on YouTube ahead of the group's live debut as the support act for TRIVIUM. Now, REPENTANCE enters fall with the release of "Enter The Gallows", an epic display of new American metal and the band's first "official" single, available now on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, YouTube and more.

Says REPENTANCE: "Since the release of 'Collide' and 'Born To Choose' this past spring, we have spent much of the year writing mode. We recently jumped into the studio and finished recording some of the new material, emerging excited and proud of the growth in our sound. We're happy to share some fresh new metal for all to hear what we've been working on! Enjoy 'Enter The Gallows'!"

"Enter The Gallows" was recorded at Electrowerks Recording with Chuck Macack (BORN OF OSIRIS, OCEANO) engineering. The track was mixed and mastered by Chris Collier (PRONG, LAST IN LINE, METAL CHURCH, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM) of CMC21 Productions.

REPENTANCE will play Wisconsin for the first time on November 12, supporting DEVILDRIVER and JINJER at Route 20 in Sturtevant.

Joining Fonts and Glass in the group are guitarist Markus Johnsson, drummer Anthony Lien and bassist Mike Sylvester.

"REPENTANCE came together very naturally, which was a very cleansing experience," states Glass. "At this point in my life, I was hoping to start working and creating new music with an almost entirely new group of people, and this crew organically locked into place."

"It's crazy how things happen," comments Fonts. "I was looking to start a new band since Rich [Ward] and Frank [Fontsere] are currently busy outside of STUCK MOJO [touring with FOZZY], so the timing for REPENTANCE came perfectly. It was NONPOINT's drummer, Robb Rivera, that introduced me to Shaun. One phone call later, we were stoked to get this show on the road. Shaun sent me demos, I wrote lyrics and vocals and our songs started coming together quickly."

"The band's sound is definitely very aggressive, pummeling metal and we can't wait to share some music with everyone soon," adds Glass. "Everyone is bringing their own style to the table, and the uniqueness of each is helping to shape our sound. All that said, we're all on the same page in terms of the musical direction that we're headed. 'Don't play metal if you ain't metal!' We're creating a style that we enjoy ourselves first and foremost."

"You know you're on to something special when everyone connects instantly and the creativity keeps on flowing," says Fonts. "I think fans of our previous work will be in for a pleasant surpriseā€¦ this band's sound is HEAVY. Get ready for REPENTANCE!"

REPENTANCE is:

Robby J. Fonts - Vocals
Shaun Glass - Guitars
Markus Johansson - Lead Guitars
Mike Sylvester - Bass
