Pure Love


Recommended Posts

Pure Love is an English-American rock band formed in 2011 by former Gallows frontman Frank Carter and ex-Hope Conspiracy and Suicide File guitarist Jim Carroll, after Carter's departure from Gallows due to "creative differences".[3] The band's musical style is a marked change from the hardcore punk backgrounds of the members.


Frank Carter had made his name in the hardcore punk scene with Watford based Gallows, known for their intense live shows and, on the back of their success with début album Orchestra of Wolves, notoriously signing a £1 million deal with Waner Bros. which lasted only 18 months before they were dropped, releasing just one album on the label, 2009's Grey Britain.[4] Carter played his last show with Gallows in August 2011. Jim Carroll has played in numerous bands in his career, notably with The Hope Conspiracy and short lived hardcore band The Suicide File.

Pure Love was formed in July 2011 after Frank Carter announced his departure from Gallows, with a "teaser" track posted that same month.[5] On February 14, 2012, Pure Love played their first show at Bush Hall in London, during the NME Awards.[6] An album is being recorded with Gil Norton producing.[7] and is slated for a 2012 release. The début single from the band, "Bury My Bones", was premièred on BBC Radio 1's Rock Show on April 24, 2012 and was made available for a free download.[8] The next single, "The Handsome Devils Club", was released at the end of May.
