Two Gallants
Alternately explosive and restrained, their most recent and aptly titled album The Bloom and the Blight is a meditation on past and present - melodic fury matched with the eloquent, confessional lyricism that has made Two Gallants an enduring favorite of both fans and critics.

Capturing the sound of a new beginning, The Bloom and the Blight celebrates the band's much anticipated reunion following a multi-year break. It is the work of Two Gallants, fully matured, the band fearlessly exploring new ground in search of a sound that defines a very personal catharsis.

"We've both gone through some hard stuff personally, so this album has that element of the cathartic, of a release of tension," explains Adam Stephens (guitar/vocals), "We had taken time off, and we did different things, played in different bands. And in doing those things, being apart and redefining ourselves in that way, we were able to come together with a fresh approach."

That approach includes everything from the distorted ferocity of "Halcyon Days" to the heart-wrenching acoustic ballad, "Sunday Souvenirs". Songs like "Ride Away" boast all the prowling, anthemic strut of classic metal; while tracks like "Winter's Youth" start sweet and sad, than shatter into huge and heavy choruses.

The album's first single, "Broken Eyes," has already become a crowd favorite with its raw, aching harmonies and weeping harmonica.

"Our past albums have been a lot more folk and blues-based, and I tried to move away from that to some extent," Stephens says of the band's fresh direction, "I wanted to find a rawness in the music and take us back where we'd come from, from punk rock and grunge in particular, to our childhood, in some ways."

Since the September 4th release of The Bloom and the Blight, Two Gallants have received critical acclaim from the likes of NME, Rolling Stone, Uncut and Spin, to name a few.

"Heavy with muscular cowpunk riffs that conjure up a meaty, Moody vision of North America, coming over like the Grand Ole Opry bringing its country swagger to CBGB."
- NME

"Bringing a healthy dose of thrash and bash to their folk- and blues-rooted tunes."
- Rolling Stone

founded in october 2010 in san francisco, ca, Future Twin was brought together by the all girl moped gang the Lockits. they became fast friends and were soon waxing synth songs, huffing gasoline and makeing shred tents late into the evening. since then situations have transpired, people were motivated to get up or get out, landslides shifted the conceptual mindscape...but adaptive by design this pirate ship just keeps sailing.
