Episode 227: Gallows w/ Frank Carter

Gallows are an English hardcore punk band from Watford, Hertfordshire. The band was formed in 2005 and their debut album, Orchestra of Wolves, was distributed in the United States by Epitaph Records. The band were subsequently signed to Warner Bros. Records, and released their second album Grey Britain in 2009. In 2011 Frank Carter left the group and went on to do Pure Love from 2011-2014 and has been doing Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes from 2015 to present day.

I reached out to Frank on Oct 2, 2022 and have been bombarding him with requests until he finally had the time to chat. 

I got Frank on the Skype and this is what we chat about:

  • His career as a tattoo artist
  • Piecing the band together
  • Not liking the bands he was on the road with during Warped Tour
  • Recording Orchestra of Wolves
  • Getting a show cancelled by Disney
  • Playing Redding Festival
  • Leaving the band
  • Is there a possibilty for a reunion
  • And a ton more

Check out SMART Recovery which Frank mentions at the end. 

Lastly I started doing whiteboard animations so if your marketing department has said recently “Hey, we need a whiteboard animation” then email me at mike@drive80.com
