On the band:



Originally formed in 1997, the Gamblers built a
local following and busted out of the Denton
TX college scene in 2001 on the
back of their self-released 7″ single “Jenna Is A No Show”. With that the band
began to take the show from the dives bars and house parties of UNT on to the
rest of the country. Austin
punk legend Tim Kerr produced their self-titled debut album that was released
on the D.C. based Vile Beat Records. A couple years later, despite rabid
major-label interest (in part derived from an explosive set at 2003’s South by
Southwest festival), the Gamblers released their second album “Something
To Crow About” through San
Francisco’s Gearhead Records. In 2006 the band
recorded and released their debut for Volcom Entertainment, “To The Confusion
Of Our Enemies”, and hit the road with Against Me!, Eagles of Death Metal,
Horrorpops, The Rollins Band, X, Joan Jett and co-headlined the inaugural
Volcom Tour in the U.S. with label mates, Valient Thorr.
