The Goddamn Gallows
Spit from the heart of America's Rust Belt, arising from a night of flophouse violence. Drifting across the states, The Goddamn Gallows 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 4 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 the 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.
The Koffin Kats
It’s been over 12 years since Vic, Tommy, & E-Ball started The Koffin Kats in their parent’s basements and played for beer in local Detroit bars. A psychobilly/punk band with influences ranging from The Damned to The Stray Cats, The Koffin Kats have covered a lot of ground. Eight albums later, a few member changes, and over 2,000 live shows from international tours… the founding lineup has returned in 2016.
Six years after his departure, Tommy Koffin is back playing guitar with The Koffin Kats. With Vic Victor on lead vocals and upright bass, and E Ball Walls on drums. The trio has released a new track called “ Cold Blood, Dead Eyes.” They will be touring North America and Europe throughout 2016. The band will be going into the studio later in the year to record a full-length album.
You can keep up with Koffin Kats on all of the social media outlets. The band likes to keep it “old school” and suggests you check out their website at www.koffinkatsrock.com for all official information on news and tours.
Formed in 2012 in Winchester VA, GALLOWS BOUND consists of a group of six childhood friends who all grew up together in their local punk scene. When they weren’t thrashing in their former punk and metal bands, they would play acoustic instruments at house parties, bonfires, and basements. Although deeply rooted in the traditional bluegrass of their home in Virginia, GALLOWS BOUND has a strong affection for their upbringing in punk rock and stitches their influences together in a blazing fury of Appalachian Punk Bluegrass. The band thumbs their nose at tradition in every sense which allows them to weave through many different scenes. Pushing the boundaries in all genres, their diverse range has landed GALLOWS BOUND on varying stages from iconic country landmark Gruene Hall in Texas to NYC’s legendary punk house C-Squat. They have been touring the U.S. feverishly, playing over 300 shows in two years and hitting every city possible from coast to coast. In between tours, GALLOWS BOUND was able to hit the recording studio and releasing their newest EP “APPALACHIAN WITCH” in Spring 2017.
