Still working on that hot first release.



Started in late February 2007, Facing the Gallows is a result of five close friends brought together by the same desire to write powerful, meaningful music, and take it out to show the world. Together they have created a metal-core monster, with heavy breakdowns rivaled by faster more melodic riffs, backed by a scream that explains every emotion of each song.

With a band that develops through true friends coming together to write music they enjoy so much, FTG has grown out of true passion for this scene and not through individual gain for popularity.

FTG has been gigging tirelessly, proved by +- 80 gigs in 15 months, around the country and playing many of its major festivals in order to bring their music to as many people as possible. FTG Believes in bringing the biggest and best show to whom ever they play for. The increasing popularity of the band is pure justification that the band does what they do well. Every show no matter what size sits in the heart of each band member and their true love for playing the music can be seen during each and every show.

FTG’s lines are catchy and aggressive and they are more than amped to start a party where ever they are. Dancing is not an option people, its mandatory! If its chaos and brutality that you want, then you’ll get… if its foot tapping rock solid beats and grooves, you’ll get that too. There is literally something for everyone at an FTG show!

If you want to see what all the excitement is about then be sure to catch a FTG show soon!
