the end could be nigh, the bands good but its franks energy and chaos that makes them as good as they are. Hope they manage to move on from this but somehow i cant see it going well
Saw this news on strikegently. It would be lame if I gave a fuck.
Just as I decided to get into these guys too. Ah well. Band will definitely be living up to their name after this, methinks.
Digging: Musk Ox - Woodfall
i loved orchestra if wolves when it came out, grey britain was a bit hit and miss though
Kind of what I think a lot of people identify Gallows with. Curious to see what happens later on..
whoa, this sucks. frank is an excellent frontman, especially live.
Fuck that sucks...
Fucking hell. I hate associating a band with just the frontman, but it couldn't be any more appropriate here. He gave a lot of his raw energy in the production, so it won't be the same.
Digging: Ne Obliviscaris - Citadel
Yeah, it's gonna be tricky for Gallows to continue "as successfully". For those that have not had a look at the link, Frank has already announced that he will continue in a new band.
Not that big of a shock. He's been talking about doing this since Grey Britain came out. Still sucks though. Keen to hear what Pure Love will be like.
actually, since way before gb came out. sounds like it wasn't really his decision, though.
can't imagine the band without him.
Do we think this was the usual hardcore vs accessibility debate, or something else?
Yeah, does come across that way. I’d imagine it would be harder for them to write with him living in NY.
I’m just glad I got to see them while he was still in the band
apparently they'll be playing new material for frank's farewell shows, so perhaps we'll find out then.
what makes this a little extra interesting is that frank's brother steph is one of the guitarists.
Insert death penalty joke here.
Digging: Portishead - Dummy
Insert forced laughter here ;)
Digging: Hyperdub - Hyperdub 10.4
Insert awkward silence here.
Fuck no this is terrible news Frank is really great for this band.
Frank is the shit. Hopefully Pure Love with be boss.
Care to elaborate andcas...
well this is shitty
This makes me sad
gallows WAS frank carter, that nigga was punk as fuck
I can't watch that video cos I'm away from a computer for the weekend |:
gutted. saw this on facebook last night. I really hope Gallows can pull through it and remain as great as they were with Frank but I have my doubts.
I have Grey Britain at 5
It's a shame I didn't see this band live. I was waiting for the next tour. fuck
Digging: Azealia Banks - Broke With Expensive Taste
This is pretty suck seeing as he was the band. Curious to hear new materiel without him.
Digging: Midnight - No Mercy for Mayhem
This is gonna make me grouchy all day. First line up change in a while to upset/annoy me this much
at least we now have another potentially great band
It's disappointing because he is really energetic live, completely mental. I also have Grey Britain at a 5. Best release of 09.
Either that or Architects - Hollow Crown, another band which took a wild downturn this year
fuck you world
Band is dead now.
Such a great frontman
Yep, that video said it all. Ta for the link andcas. The accidental frontman who has tried to get out of the band before is never a good sign.
I remember reading an interview of him where he gave a story of him and his brother getting really pissed off at each other when writing Grey Britain. He gave the impression that it wasn't an uncommon thing but it seemed more like brother v brother bickering than anything else
This sucks! Great band. I think it's a bit harsh people saying "he is the band" cuz they're all talented, but it will be impossible to replace frank's energy
Gallows no more.
They're all indeed talented, but Frank.. he put the Gal in Gallows.
Shit, man. Frank was a brilliant frontman...
I have faith that they'll find a good replacement. Having said that, I probably won't enjoy the next record as much as I enjoyed Orchestra of Wolves or Grey Britain unless the find a Frank Carter doppelganger.
Nooooooooooooo, this sux hard. I'm gonna play Gallows for the rest of today..
"Misery f*cking loves me & I love her too".
Saw them a few years ago, probably one of the most energetic shows I've been to it was insane. Frank got a tattoo onstage which was pretty much the only point of the whole show that he wasn't in the crowd. Sad to hear about this.
Such a bummer! Frank was perfect for Gallows and I hate to see him leave. His vocals were a major part of what made them an incredible band. Grey Britain was an immense album. I wonder how they're going to follow it now...
what a shame
Digging: Volahn - Aq Ab Al
Does anyone know if they've actually written the whole album yet?
This is still bothering me and I've slept on it and everything. When they played warped it was one of the best shows I've ever been to even though they were the only good band there and only had 30 mins to play.
I thought everyone knew this was inevitable, every interview he has ever done he talked about how he was only going to be able to do this so long.
One less ginger in extreme music...good riddance.
Digging: Pink Turns Blue - If Two Worlds Kiss
But he has a new band so he's not gone
Keep one eye open while you sleep from now on....the gingers could be planning something big. If you hear a cymbal crash or a sharp distortion squeal then WAKE UP!!!!!..the ginger hardcore movement is coming to your bedroom to annoy the innocent with their grating brand of hardcore.
Ginger girls are hot
Yeah agreed. I'd take a cute green eyed redhead over a blonde/brunette any day of the week.
irish women > anything
redheads get me all hot n bothered
and only irish girls have red hair
@News article WHAT!?!
Digging: Whirr/Nothing - Split
Scottish? The whole Irish/Scottish/Welsh/British area is all pretty much the same shit anyways.
redhead Irish girls > Gallows
yea but balls scottish accents are dumb and english accents are too common
that irish accent gets to me
and not a single fuck was given that day
Apparently McC is Scottish....according to some snobbish lady I talked to. Scottish accents rule and besides...William Wallace.
i am NOT scottish you dirty fucker
Big shoes to fill, he was bloody brilliant live.
Digging: Deathspell Omega - Paracletus
COME AT ME BRO!!!!! Bring your dog too.
I'm Irish, Scottish, Polish and German and I feel that I represent both the best and worst of these cultures.
Have they found him yet?
Fucking god dammit, Carter was the best part of this band.
what not just irish girls have red hair
band is over
Scotland and Ireland have by far the highest red head population by percentage
But the US has by far the most red heads in total
Digging: Bobby Barnett - Little Wounds
I do, Ajay, as do quite a lot of people, Ajay
Band is dead
im betting they'll get a Bro for a new singer and be identical to Your Demise, im seriously pissed off about this
Digging: Giant - Song
Well, twas obvious this was gonna happen. Still sucks though...
Yeah it's a shame, misery just fucking loves me
"Jonah, redheads are not a race."
"But they're fucking everywhere sir!"
Classic Australian nostalgia.
And I'll fall for A Scottish accent anyway. Female OR male.
Hahahaha ^ Nice Summer Heights High reference
This fucking sucks, i never got to see them when they came to Australia
Yeah it's a shame, misery just fucking loves me
if you react like this, just be an hero
Yeah but then who would smoke all my crack?
I'll put my hand up.
Okay Nigel I trust you, but just know, it's some pretty batshit shit.
I hope the new album is finished... if not it'll probably suck. If they had fully broken up they'd probably end up going into history as one of "those" punk bands. My guess is they limp on for 1-3 more albums without him.
Although, his brother's band broke up not too long ago, and he's a beast on vocals. If they just change in for another Carter brother I could see good things coming from this.
sucks so hard =(
this isn't the new i wanted on my return from holiday at all :-(
I'm gonna hang myself
Saw their set at Sonisphere yesterday, ridiculously good.
Also saw their set at sonisphere, biggest pit of the entire weekend
Gallows without Carter is nothing..
holy shit I swear someone said on the alexisonfire breaks up thread that they were betting on him
