I don't think he's a suitable replacement. A non-english vocalist doesn't seem like it would work when it comes to Gallows

but we'll see

Hmm, will listen when new material gets released. Wades vocals had only been getting better with Alexisonfire, you could tell he wanted a greater singing part in the band. This will probably be good for him, although agree with the non-English thing, could be weird.

yeah I'm definitely a little surprised, more than anything I think it's a pretty cool coincidence? I've always like both Gallows and Alexisonfire, it'll be interesting to see how the meshing works out. It's just odd cause Gallows are over in the UK and they've got that real fuck off attitude and then Alexisonfire's up in Ontario which is basically love everyone land. will be interesting...

"gallows should have just moved franks brother to vocals."

Or Tom, from The Ghost of a Thousand.

"I seem to be the only one surprised/confused about this move. There seems to be a connection with the two bands that I didn't know about."

This suprised me (and I've been listening to Gallows since my freshman year). The only connection that I can think of is that Cancer Bats and Alexis... have been good friends for a while now, even contributing to each other's music. Cancer Bats and Gallows have toured together a lot and what not. I've heard/read interviews where they've complimented each other's music.

A bunch of bigger British hardcore bands are in a little group that tour together all the time and what not, and the Cancer Bats got included into that little club. Alexis... were from long before most of those bands formed though. That's the only connection I see.

AT THE END OF THE DAY I GUESS I'M SAYING I DON'T APPROVE OF ANY OF THIS.

They should rename the band or something, leave the Gallows legacy as it is for the fans because whatever they're going to become won't be anything like what got them so much attention in the first place.
