Welsh math rock trio Gallops have their debut album on the way - Yours Sincerely, Dr. Hardcore is out on December 10 via Blood & Biscuits, and we've got a trailer video ahead of the release:

Following their selt-titled EP in 2010 and last year's Record Store Day release ‘Joust/Eukodol’, the LP promises to add some groove to their technical proficiency.

Says guitarist Mark Huckridge: "An important factor in the song writing process was to groove and not to overcomplicate things, which could’ve been a very easy trap to fall into. We wanted to avoid being clever for the sake of it."

The band are heading out on tour before the album's release - here are the dates:

OCTOBER
Sat 13 - Cargo, London
Sat 20 - Swn Festival, Cardiff

NOVEMBER
Thu 1 - Rock City, Nottingham
Fri 2 - Mello Mello, Liverpool
Sat 3 - Damnation Festival, Leeds
Mon 5 - Tunnels, Aberdeen
Tue 6 - ABC2, Glasgow
Wed 7 - Trillians, Newcastle
Thu 8 - Cooler, Bristol
Fri 9 - Academy 3, Birmingham
