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.
If softly-Southern hardcore was a genre, Reconciler would be its gold-standard. Three low-rent gentlemen from Atlanta laying it down just hard enough to keep the kids interested while everyone their age stands in the back nodding with their arms crossed...if that sounds like your good time, then grab yourself a beer and maybe take out the earplugs for just this one set.
