Frank Carter, frontman for UK hardcore-punks Gallows, has announced his departure from the band after singing lead for them for 6 years. Carter released an official statement on his website:

"It is with a heavy heart that I have to announce my departure from Gallows. It seems that Gallows have hit a crossroads in our writing process and unfortunately myself and the rest of the boys have different ideas regarding the sound of Gallows going forward. Gallows have decided they are going to continue on without me and I wish the boys the best of luck for the future. Gallows will be fulfilling all of our current touring plans until August 1st so please come down to a show and help me make each show a total celebration!"

Gallows released Grey Britain in 2009 via Warner Music Group.

Carter is working on a new project called Pure Love with Jimmy Carroll of the Hope Conspiracy and the Suicide File.
