the gallows (2017/NOTHING BUT A NIGHTMARE)

POST-PUNK. After two 7"s and a split tape with CEMETERY, New York City's anarcho-deathrock hybrid PAWNS is poised to release their debut full-length, "the gallows". Against the landscape drawn up by '80s-influenced post-punk, PAWNS casts a more complex shadow than it's predecessors, exploring dark and desperate melodies rooted in classic peace-punk yet teaming in vision and avoidance of categorization. In this melodic maelstrom of bleak, gothic-punk sits frontman Gage Allison whose ominous vocals call to mind the genre pushing, industrial post-punk delivery of bands like KILLING JOKE. Vinyl includes a digital download card.
