The band was formed back in 1977 in Vienna, Austria. the bandmembers then have been ALOIS MARTIN BINDER (vocals, guitars), REINHARD SCHEBIAK (drums) and WALTER NOVACEK (bass).
In 1979 the band released their first single SHUT UP/DESTINY under the
name ANGELINA. it was number one in the austrian charts.
Then the band decided to change the name: GALLOWS POLE was born.
In 1980 the band went to England to record their first full length album IN ROCK WE TRUST and signed a deal with Sony Records.
The album was from the beginning a huge success and is a cult record until now. It was released all across europe. To promote the album in the US the band went to L.A. to sign a record deal with AZRA records and the album IN ROCK WE TRUST was released there as a picture disc.
GALLOWS POLE played a lot of gigs in the States and a few of that rare live recordings can be listened to on the albums WE WANNA COME HOME re-release (KARTHAGO RECORDS) and WE WANNA COME HOME remasters (BGG-ENTERTAINMENT).
In 1985 the band went to England to record their second album WE WANNA COME HOME. In this recording sessions the drummer got sick and the recording had to be stopped. The band went back to England two years later to continue the recordings with JOHN LINGWOOD at drums.
In1989 the record was released and the drummer unfortunatly died. GALLOWS POLE decided to stop releasing albums for a while because there was no other drummer good enough and JOHN was on tour this time.
In 1992 because of the big demand GALLOWS POLE released a sampler also called IN ROCK WE TRUST including a few songs from WE WANNA COME HOME and the hitsingle SUMMERRAIN, then WALTER NOVACEK left the band and AMB continued alone.
In 1998 the album THE SMILE OF THE DOLPHINS (BGG-ENTERTAINMENT) was produced which sounds quite different from the other records.
AMB find new musicians: LUBI IVIC (bass) and STEFAN WINKLER (drums), with the old time member GÜNTHER STEINER playing the keys. In 2007 the album GALLOWS POLE IV was recorded and is available as download all over the world and will be released as CD also pretty soon. Already in 2008 the band started the recordings for the album REVOLUTION which has been released on 2010 by KARTHAGO RECORDS.
In 2011 the band released the album WAITING FOR THE MOTHERSHIP, that is a concept album, and in 2013 AND TIME STOOD STILL.
On May 2016 is released the newest album DOORS OF PERCEPTION
