Jayke Orvis to Join The Goddamn Gallows Full Time on Upcoming Tour

When mandolin maestro and songwriter Jayke Orvis was unceremoniously booted from the now defunct .357 String Band, he found safe haven with the likes of the dark roots ensemble The Goddamn Gallows. After a few rounds across the country with the outfit, Orvis felt inclined to launch a solo career and formed The Broken Band, which became one of the most spellbinding underground string bands that could be found on stage. Then The Broken Band birthed it’s own offshoots The Urban Pioneers, and Jayke decided to put the band effort on an of indefinite hiatus for a while, while at the same time promising not to stay away too long, and touring some as a solo act in the interim.

Now word has come down that Jayke Orvis has decided to suit up once again with the Goddamn Gallows on their upcoming nationwide tour. Stepping aside for the moment is banjo player Joe Perreze. “I will be back with them onstage in the future and look forward to enjoying the show from the audience in the meantime,” says Perreze. The Gallows will be touring behind their latest album The Maker.

Opening select dates on the tour will be blues aficionado Husky Burnette, who is getting ready to release his new album Ain’t Nothin’ But A Revival! produced by Andy Gibson on February 26th.

This tour will not be for the faint of heart. But for those to like blood, fire, and all manner of wild antics mixed into the darkest, hardest roots music in existence, the Goddamn Gallows are a sight to behold.
