“Hell’s Whiskey” is the first taste of Kent-based hard rockers Gallow’s Circus’s upcoming second EP due in September 2020.

Showcasing a more focussed, hard-hitting sound, the band are exclusively premiering the video to the new single here on V13 and had this to say about the song: “Hell’s Whiskey is a song about engaging in self-destructive behaviour and continuing down that road, despite knowing where it leads.”

The “blues-stained” hard rock band have built up quite a formidable reputation across the country with their unmissable brand of hard and heavy rock. Their influences are range from the power of Led Zeppelin through the melodic genius of Thin Lizzy, onto the modern blues-rock of Rival Sons and the hard edge of Soundgarden.

This shot of “Hell’s Whiskey” has certainly whet our appetites for more from the band so keep your eyes peeled here for more news from Gallow’s Circus in the run-up to the release of their eagerly-anticipated second EP later this year.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
