The Gaslight Anthem Announce UK Tour
New Jersey rockers The Gaslight Anthem return with their eagerly-anticipated new album ‘Get Hurt’ on 18th August through Virgin EMI.
Recorded at the legendary Blackbird Studios in Nashville with producer Mike Crossey (The 1975, Arctic Monkeys and Jake Bugg), ‘Get Hurt’ sees The Gaslight Anthem pushing their raw, stripped back rock ‘n’ roll into new territory, drawing on a fresh palette of influences ranging across folk, punk, and Americana. It is an album that is heavier, and yet at the same time more intimate, than anything they have produced to date.
Following the success of their 2012 album ‘Handwritten’– which charted in the Top Three of the album charts across Europe and America, with the band playing Wembley Stadium, Glastonbury and Coachella along the way- The Gaslight Anthem’s fifth studio album perfectly shows them thriving creatively while pushing their horizons artistically. It is a record that oozes the confidence of a band at the very top of their game.
Fans will get a first taste of ‘Get Hurt’ today with the release of a minute long promo video clip featuring their song ‘Stay Vicious’, filmed by a friend of the band while they were in recording in Nashville.
The Gaslight Anthem today also announce one of their biggest headline European tours to date including a show at London’s Alexandra Palace:
