I'm sad he left, but this song rocks! http://bit.ly/rau2gH
I love it
I might finally like gallows
but there are lots and lots of songs that already exist that are not only just like this but better.
This comes to mind most: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0ptYhO7_qVQ

This new song/singer just makes them sound like a million other shouty hardcore bands. They've lost the main thing that helped them to stand out.
they stood out because of really good song-writing on the first album, and before the epitaph re-release, pretty good/raw production job.
I do agree that McNeil's vocal's makes them sound very generic, but seeing as Frank Carter allegedly left literally due to "musical differences" suggests the band are gonna be freed up to try and write interesting music again
Frank's delivery was a massive part of their sound too and now he's gone it sounds like they've traded that 'punk' edge in for a more by-numbers hardcore approach. Possibly to suit Wade's style.
On the evidence of this (and yes it's only 40secs) I'd say if one of the two sides is going to be showing a more interesting/diverse side, it's probably not Gallows.
