Regarding a recent tweet exchange regarding having some Gallows in the game. Any authors fancy getting some of these?

Aaron Trites ‏@HMXhenry
@justin8680 I would love for this to happen. Maybe in RBN.

If someone was able to get these, im sure he'd be your best friend for a bit :P

Their debut album was released through a UK label called "Deep end records" Website and contact details here.. http://www.iatde.com/ before their second was done with Warner making it highly doubtful for anything from that. Im pretty sure "Belly of a shark" was in one of the early guitar hero games, so its possible....

Gallows are pretty much a hardcore punk band

Some tracks worth listening

Any takers?

    I remember seeing them for my first concert. Missed my favourite song by them because I was in the basement meeting AFI (my favourite band) at the time. They're seriously awesome.

    I back this idea 110% because I am selfish and greedy and self motivated.

    But yeah, if anyone were to make this happen I'd be happy to throw a bunch of promotion behind it. I've had some talks with our Music Ops team about setting up some kind of "bounty program" for RBN where HMXers would essentially put together a wishlist of (realistic) bands that we personally would like to see in the game, where the authoring group that secured them getting some manner of swag or DLC codes in addition to the additional promotion for the tracks and bragging rights. There was some mixed reaction to the idea of turning RBN into a race or a competition, but I'm still kicking the idea around.

    Also, yes, Gallows, please.

    Well, seeing as I still haven't secured a GH song, I might as well try for this one.

    I support this idea, send me codes for getting Alternative Tentacle to release Jello Biafra's music.:p

    I love this idea! I think some kind of lottery style or other allocation system might be in order as just listing a bunch of bands may lead to multiple authors going after the same band and leading to communication issues between authors and the constant bugging of said band to be on the RBN.

    I'm also totally into this idea. I don't know why, but it seems like lots of fun. Hopefully it won't lead to less than happy cooperation between charters.

    Not sure if anybody else had tried, but I tried emailing both Deep End, and the bands management, last October and never heard from either.

    If a certain someone who's been speaking to them wants to try to get them to prod their management to get back to us *nudge nudge Henry*, then maybe they'll be down for it?

    Ever tried for "Cliffs Of Dover"? That's my #1 song I've wanted to see in RB. I never went for it because I had always hoped HMX would give it Pro Guitar, but even without that, if you snagged it I'd buy it in a heartbeat.

    I'd love to see Gallows. Wade McNeil is their current singer (former Alexisonfire) and right now they're 300% more awesome.

    Still, Orchestra of Wolves is their best record thus far.

    It's a lucky thing they JUST finished recording their new album on a small independent label stationed a 20 minute drive from HMX headquarters.

    SShhh, that's looking promising. No one else contact them please, I've already started the process.

    The album that song is on is on Capitol Records, owned by EMI, so I don't see it happening for RBN. Sad, as I'd love it too.

    I got a reply from In At The Deep End saying that I need to contact Warner for Gallows-related stuff, which has me believe that Warner now has the rights to the album that "In The Belly of a Shark" is on. And since I have no connections at Warner and, well, it's Warner, I doubt I'll be able to get it.

    So it looks like Gallows will have to be only the new album if TAG can get it, unless someone can somehow convince Warner to let their Gallows stuff happen.

    Damn, I would have loved In the Belly of a Shark

    Pfft someone tell me when hell freezes over and then I'll send the email.

    On the plus side Wade from Alexisonfire is involved in their new stuff.

    Another plus side; unless I read way too much into their little press release about their new label, that new label of theirs, Venn Records, is their own band led label.

    They don't have the US and Canada rights though. I'm already dealing with the label that does.

    Psst, I interned with that label for almost 2 years. :)

    They are the absolute best dudes, and the whole label has stacks of stuff that I would love to see in RBN, including a few big punk acts that should do very well. I pitched them on RBN right before the program launched and they were extremely interested, but they move at 100 miles an hour and have a ton of work to do for an indie hardcore label. But last I spoke with them the interest was there, so hopefully you're able to make some headway.

    They have indeed shown interest and the process is moving forward.
