The Goddamn Gallows
The Goddamn Gallows
Spit 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.

In 2007, they left everything behind and spent the next 4 years living out of whatever vehicle would get them to the next town. Building upon their original sound of twanged-out, punk rock gutterbilly (Life of Sin 2004 and Gutterbillyblues 2007), they began picking up stray musicians along the way and adding to their sound; washboard, accordion, mandolin and banjo (Ghost of the Rails 2009 and 7 Devils 2011) creating a sound referred to as "hobocore", "gypsy-punk" or "americana-punk", while never being stuck in any one sound.

Enter 2018 and The Goddamn Gallows have reinvented themselves once again with The Trial. From rockabilly, psychobilly and punk rock, to bluegrass and metal, The Trial infuses disparate sounds into a new strange recipe of seamless genre bending profundities.

Chock full of impromptu antics of the shocking variety and hauntingly eclectic instrumentation, The Goddamn Gallows have made legions of fans with their legendary, live shows.
The Strikers
The Strikers
Hailing from San Diego California, The Strikers sound is a mixture of aggressive punk rock, metal and psychobilly. Joey (guitar/lead vocals) and longtime friend Donovan (drums) were tired of trying to force their musical styles into bands that did not share their vision. They began writing songs for a straight forward rock band that would not compromise its sound for anyone. Almost by luck they found Rob (upright bass/backing vocals) who also shared their vision. The trio began writing and performing, mixing their own, very different, musical styles into one aggressive “kick-in-the-neck rock n’ roll band".

Systematic Abuse
Going to keep it short and sweet....

Formed in 2008 out of the ashes of The Resentments, Hammer, Grim, and Dogol decided to pick up where the last band left off and continue their quest on the path of Hardcore destruction. After searching long and hard for a drummer that would fit our style, Hammer decided to give his old buddy and ex band mate, Kevin Castillio (Dingo) a call. After one jam session in Dogol's garage in Imperial Beach, it was then and there that we realized Dingo would be the perfect fit for what we were trying to accomplish. After a couple years of shows and a few mini tours we decided to ask our long time friend and brother in Hardcore, Match to stand in as a second vocalist for the band. It only seemed right considering he named it. After 6 years of countless shows, a few more mini tours, a million laughs, and goodtimes and good memories... Kevin decided that it was his time to leave Systematic due personal matters. His unique Hardcore "Dingo-Beat" style that gave us our signature sound will surely be missed, But not as much as the good times we shared on the road and jamming in that tiny room. WE LOVE YA DINGO!

Now we are on the next chapter of our journey and behind us pumping out the fastest and meanest fucking beat we've had is, Adam Cripe. He is a hardworking, asskicking motherfucker with unbelievable talent. Systematic Abuse is louder and faster than we've ever were before. We are unstoppable and will continue banging out the same Hardcore Thrash shit that we've always loved playing.

See ya at the next show
