    Gallows formed in 2004 from the ashes of Laurent Barnard's previous pop punk band, My Dad Joe, and Stuart Gili-Ross from the recently defunct Winter In June and released their first album Orchestra of Wolves on In at the Deep End Records. The album caught the attention of Bad Religion's Brett Gurewitz, who released it in the US on Epitaph Records, with new tracks including a cover of Black Flag's "Nervous Breakdown". In an interview Gurewitz named Orchestra of Wolves as one of his favourite albums of 2007, praising it as being the best hardcore album since Refused's The Shape of Punk to Come.

    Their 2007 tour included stops at the South by Southwest showcase festival, Warped Tour 2007, Download Festival, Taste of Chaos 2003, and the Reading Festival, where Frank Carter got tattooed live on-stage during the set.

    The band won the 2007 Kerrang! Award for best British Newcomer.

    Their single "In The Belly of a Shark" appears on Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock.

    The bands third single, "Staring at the Rude Bois, Blud!", which was originally by The Ruts, provided Gallows with their first UK top 40 single, appearing at number 31 on the chart on the 25th November 2007. Additionally the song can be heard during the background of a bar scene in the 2008 film Yes Man starring Jim Carrey. The band in February released new single "Just Because You Sleep Next to Me Doesn't Mean You're Safe", the video for which was filmed at Emo's in Texas.

    In January 2008, the band's show at the House of Blues in Anaheim, California was cancelled after Disney chose to ban them from performing—reportedly after listening to Orchestra of Wolves.

    Gallows contributed a song to the Maiden Heaven: A Tribute to Iron Maiden album with a cover of "Wrathchild."

    On August 18, 2008, the band made available on their MySpace profile a recently recorded song entitled "Gold Dust." It has been confirmed that the song will not appear on the band's second studio album, but that it is ". . . just a little treat for everyone that's been asking for new Gallows songs for a while."
