Published Sep 11, 2007The front-man for Epitaph-signed hardcore act Gallows has announced he will soon give up music to go back to his job as a tattoo artist. Frank Carter has stated: "Gallows is not my life. Never has been, never will. It's a hobby I get paid for. I'm a tattoo artist - that will always be my life and job. Being in a band is something I do for fun. I quit the band four times before we signed to a major label. Gallows won't last five years." Despite the band's success with the well-received debut album, Orchestra of Wolves, Carter made the decision after he was tattooed live on stage at the Reading Festival last month by New Found Glory's Chad Gilbert. Carter added that it won't be an immediate end. "We'll definitely write and record the next album. And I'd like to make a third. But as I said, tattooing is my life."
