Gallows frontman quits

Frank Carter has announced he is quitting punk outfit Gallows, though the band are seemingly planning to carry on without their frontman.

Carter said in a statement: “It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce my departure from Gallows. It seems that Gallows have hit a crossroads in our writing process and unfortunately myself and the rest of the boys have different ideas regarding the sound of Gallows going forward. Gallows have decided they are going to continue on without me and I wish the boys the best of luck for the future. Gallows will be fulfilling all of our current touring plans until 1 Aug so please come down to a show and help me make each show a total celebration!”

Carter plans to focus on his new band Pure Love after August, while the rest of Gallows will continue to work on their new album, presumably with a new frontman, though that person is tbc.

Carter’s brother and soon to be former bandmate Stephan added: “Frank, Steph, Lee, Stu and myself are all entering the most exciting period of our careers since breaking in 2007. While we wish Frank the best of luck on his new adventure the rest of us in Gallows literally cannot wait to play you the new songs and announce who will be singing with us in the future. We realise Frank is a hard figure to replace so be assured that the decision to continue as a band has been one we’ve been deliberating over long and hard. We’re extremely confident that we won’t be letting anyone down when we drop the next record, especially not ourselves or the people who believe in us. Death is birth. Your ears have been warned”.
