Since early 2007 FTG have found much joy in locking themselves in a sound proof room and writing music to share with people all over South Africa and the World. The band formed when 5 friends realised they played the right instruments to create a band. And what was meant to be a few jams turned into what is now known as Facing the Gallows. After two months of hard writing and rehearsal, FTG played their first show as a replacement act for Cape Town metalcore outfit, Forever Will Burn. Since then the band has travelled far and wide playing for people at almost all major South African music festivals, big cities, small towns and townships. Their love to music and people have driven Facing the Gallows to write heavy, hard-hitting songs that will get you dancing. FTG released their debut EP in the form of a split album with friends The Dead Will Tell entitled, This Is Hate City, in 2012. Following on in 2013 - FTG went back into studio to record their first full length ‘Chapters’ - accompanied by a full country wide tour for the release of the album. The band is currently launching their 3rd album release "Dead Mindset" FTG is working hard to get where they want to be and share their music and energy with as many people across the World as possible.
