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.
