The Goddamn Gallows Info
The Goddamn Gallows came from the heart of America's Rust Belt, arising from a night of flophouse violence. Drifting across the states, they cemented their sound in Portland, OR and later in Los Angeles, CA, where they lived in abandoned buildings, squatter camps, storage units and shoebox apartments. In 2007, they left everything behind and spent four years living out of whatever vehicle would get them to the next town. Building upon their original sound of twanged-out, punk rock gutterbilly (as heard on 2004's Life of Sin and 2007's Gutterbillyblues albums) they began picking up stray musicians along the way and adding to their sound washboard, accordion, mandolin and banjo creating a sound referred to as "hobocore," "gypsy-punk," or "americana-punk," while never being stuck in any one sound (evident on 2009's Ghost of the Rails and 2011's 7 Devils). The Goddamn Gallows continue to rapidly grow a devoted following with their volatile and spectacular live shows, a contagious, spontaneous eruption of unpredictability.
