The Gaslight Anthem
The New Jersey rockers break hiatus with UK tour this summer
Ten years on from their Top Ten album Handwritten, The Gaslight Anthem are back, announcing dates in London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Birmingham for August 2022.
The Gaslight Anthem arrived on the scene in 2007 with their debut album Sink or Swim, updating the heartland rock of their native New Jersey with a grittier, punk rock and a strong propensity for anthemic hooks. Having played together in various bands previously, lead singer and rhythm guitarist Brian Fallon, bassist Alex Levine, drummer Benny Horowitz and lead guitarist Alex Rosamilia began gigging in and around New Brunswick in 2006 as The Gaslight Anthem. Their debut full-length, Sink or Swim, featuring the likes of 'We Came To Dance' and 'Boomboxes and Dictionaries', quickly earnt high praise on the blogosphere.
The mainstream music media soon cottoned on, and for the release of their sophomore LP The '59 Sound the band made rock history by being the first to grace the Kerrang! cover without having ever featured in the magazine previously — itself indicative of their roaming global popularity. Reaching another huge milestone, in 2008 The Gaslight Anthem performed with their idol and major influence Bruce Springsteen at Glastonbury and in Hyde Park.
The Boss wasn't the only influence on the New Jersey outfit, with Fallon citing the likes of The Rolling Stones and Eric Clapton as influences for their third studio-album, American Slang. In 2011 the band signed a major record deal with Mercury to release their fourth album, Handwritten, released a year later and debuting at No.3 in the Billboard 200. '"45"', the album's cathartic opener, reached No.1 in the UK Rock & Metal charts. Only a year after the release of their fifth album Get Hurt, The Gaslight Anthem announced an indefinite hiatus — though in 2018 they performed a small bunch of shows to celebrate the 10th anniversary of The '59 Sound. In March 2022 the band announced a small string of dates around the UK in summer.
