Mathew Reese from The Gallery
The Gallery, a four piece from Wakefield, are creating a new movement in alternative/rock music that is birthed as a backlash to the over saturated, dying lad rock genre. They aim to redesign what a guitar band can be and convert their post-punk nihilistic flavours with hooks and rock tendencies.

Labelled as ‘Ones to Watch’, as well as ‘infectious, ambitious and full of swagger’ by GigSlutz, their debut EP, ‘A Safe Approach to Being’, was recorded by Mike Heaton of Embrace at Squirrel Studios. These songs would be later featured on BBC Introducing Leeds and other radio stations nationally and internationally. After back-to-back sell out headline shows in early 2017, the band embarked on their debut tour the following year. 2019 will be a defining year for the 4-piece, with new plans arising.
