Bonfire Season

Album: Desolation Sounds (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This song began as an ode to Siouxsie And The Banshees. "I've always been a fan of that slightly gothic, dark style of punk and felt it was the time for Gallows to explore that style of music," said Gallows guitarist Laurent Barnard. "The verses still have that old school boot stomp feel but combined with atmospheric noises providing menacing undertones."
  • The video was shot by Canadian director and musician Josh Reichmann, who previously worked on the band's clip for Desolation Sounds' first single "Chains" in 2014.
