Mark Huckridge of Gallops said, "After 3 years loitering in the corridors of the vanilla prefab that is life in the 21st century, Gallops have returned. We’ve tried desperately to exorcise the MIDI-synced demons in our skulls via mundane tasks and hobbyist ritual. We’ve burned all of our equipment more than once. But none of this worked. We head into an East Midlands studio next month to begin recording our second LP. We will be performing our first UK festival appearance at Arctangent on Saturday 20th August."
John Simm of Cleft added, "ATG is like family. We couldn't be more excited to be killing off this stupid band at the festival this year, and we'll have a special few nuggets of fun for anyone that turns up to see us and our special friends."
