GODDAMN GALLOWS, THE : The Trial
In 2004, THE GODDAMN GALLOWS began their rough and tumble voyage and haven't looked in the review mirror since.
Leaving six studio albums in their path, they have been reinventing their music with every record. Spit 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 the next 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 (Life of Sin 2004 and Gutterbillyblues 2007), they began picking up stray musicians along the way and adding to their sound; washboard, accordion, mandolin and banjo (Ghost of th Rails 2009 and 7 Devils 2011) creating a sound referred to as hobocore, gypsy-punk or americana-punk, while never being stuck in any one sound.
Enter 2018 and THE GODDAMN GALLOWS have reinvented themselves once again with The Trial. From rockabilly, psychobilly and punk rock, to bluegrass and metal, The Trial infuses disparate sounds into a new strange recipe of seamless genre bending profundities.
Chock full of impromptu antics of the shocking variety and hauntingly eclectic instrumentation, THE GODDAMN GALLOWS have made legions of fans with their legendary, live shows.
