Gallowstreet first hit the scene playing local neighbourhood festivals in Amsterdam in 2012, but quickly emerged as a mighty festival machine, jolting fans of EDM (PITCH), jazz (North Sea Jazz), hip-hop and pop music (Lowlands) alike with their hard-hitting brass and analogue dance music. After playing all of the top festivals in the Dutch-speaking world (including Belgium’s Dour Festival) in 2015, Gallowstreet is ready to take on the world with their debut album Battleplan (V2 Records), released June 2016.

Featuring daunting percussion and scalding rhythms topped with explosive riffs and themes from the 10-man horn section, Battleplan makes for an album that boasts sounds never heard before from a brass band. Not just another brass band playing New Orleans style music, Gallowstreet has carved out its own niche within the genre. 

Whether it’s hip hop, funk, house or  Ennio Morricone feel film scores. The band blends it all together in a unique blend. Enjoy the sounds of Gallowstreet!
