Staring At The Rude Bois
Check out the video for 'Staring At The Rude Bois' released on CD and 7" vinyl November 19th 2007.
Saturday March 17th 2007. Gallows are in full-flight careering through a show at EMO's in Texas during the SXSW Festival - a performance that sees the Watford punk n' roll quintet spend the majority of their set off the stage and immersed within the shell-shocked crowd as they scream inches away from our faces, battering us with wave-after-wave of the life-affirming punk rock attack that they are now famous for. Amongst that crowd is Lethal Bizzle, Walthamstow grime-rapper and now fully-fledged Gallows fan. Numbers are exchanged, a collaboration is discussed and before long 'Staring At The Rude Bois' is created, an updated version of 'Staring At The Rude Boys' by seventies punk legends The Ruts.
While staying true to the original, the song has been rearranged and features new lyrics by Frank Carter and Lethal Bizzle to reflect street life in 2007 rather than 1979. The release also features artwork designed by Lethal Bizzle and Frank Carter and is available in the following formats and track-listings.
19 Nov Portsmouth Guildhall
21 Nov Birmingham Academy
22 Nov Cardiff Arena
23 Nov Newcastle Academy
24 Nov Glasgow Academy

Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
