The Real McKenzies (CAN)
The Goddamn Gallows (US)
THE REAL McKENZIES are not just a “band” from Vancouver / Canada. They are an unstoppable, kilt wearing, touring machine. A road-hardened crew of traveling minstrels, entertainers and vagabonds on a never-ending quest for good times.
For the past 23 years, this ferocious gang of miscreants has been captivating audiences around the globe with their addictive, uncompromising and undeniably heartfelt music.
in 2015, they are back to enter the stages with their 9th record “Rats in the Burlap” since their formation in 1992. Additional to this new album and an extensive tour in Canada, Europe and America during summer, there will be a biography named “Under the kilt: The Real McKenzies EXPOSED” released in spring by Chris Walter.
So this year should be a whirlwind of touring and playing some amazing shows with what they consider to be their best live line-up ever.
...much like a fine single malt scotch, The Real McKenzies only get better with age.
THE GOODAMN GALLOWS came 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.
The Goddamn Gallows continue to rapidly grow a devoted following with their volatile and spectacular live shows; a contagious, spontaneous eruption of unpredictability
