The 49th band to step into the spotlight in Planet Rock’s weekly Ones To Watch feature are gloriously dirty blues rockers Gallows Circus.
Gallows Circus are: Ian Day (vocals & harmonica), Jim Rycroft (guitar), Richard Tunbridge – (bass) and Steve Kitchener (drums).
Faintly tipping their hats to past rock masters, Gallows Circus have crafted a sound that calls upon the passion of Free and is fortified by the snarly riffery of Guns N Roses. Formed in 2017, ever since they have been making new friends and picking up fans right across the country. The talented, dirty blues rockers dropped their self-titled debut EP last year, notching up a tidal wave of support from the underground. The quartet have built on these steady foundations and have created a live set that has been famed for its infectious groove, fiery spirit and full-hearted execution.
Gallows Circus now deliver their explosive new single, Faith to Believe. This absolute firecracker of a track was recorded at Squarehead Studios and mixed at Outhouse Studios, and it’s destined to hit radio airwaves over the coming weeks. Vocalist and Harmonica player, Ian Day, talks about the single: “It is a song about struggling whether to put your faith in your instincts or to go with other people’s accepted ideals, being unsure if you’re letting your past influence your decisions, and seeking answers from others when you already know the path to take.”
Following on from the new single, the band have a series of further singles and videos lined up throughout 2019, along with major festival plans. Stay tuned to the band’s Facebook and other social sites for updates and show announcements.
