Fans of Hertfordshire based band, Gallows will be happy to hear that these fantastic guys have released their latest music video – ‘Last June’. When I checked it out, words could not describe just how superb I found this video and the song itself. ‘Last June’ is a music video full of extreme hyperness, excitement and energy just like the band themselves.
Despite being familiar with Gallows for quite some time, I must confess and hang my head in shame for not following there work over the past few months…however by just listening and watching ‘Last June’ made me realise just how these guys not just create a buzz and vibe in the listener, but they remind me just how punk rock should be.
In terms of the video itself, there are two dimensions to it. On one side you have footage of riots taking place, with the police in their riot gear and ready for action. Then on the otherside you have the Gallows and their many fans at a gig – doing what they do best – kicking ass to some insane music. In some sense just watching the video unleashed the rebellious, wild Darkus that some of my readers know, because even though I was watching a music video, I could nevertheless feel the immense energy, as though I was part of the crowd that Gallows were playing too.
The fun does not stop at Last June, because the band have announced that through their own record label, Venn Records they will be unleashing their self titled album 10th September 2012. If that is not good enough, things get better as they embark on a UK tour in October guaranteed to blown ya mind and leave you thinking to yourself – “feck me what just happened”.
Gallows are really going from strength to strength as a band, and each any everytime I hear them be it on CD, Music Video or A live show, I just feel like standing up, cranking the volume up and going crazzzzy!
Last June is definitely worth checking out as well, so be sure to go over to www.gallows.co.uk to find out how you can get a free download.
