The Gaslight Anthem

About this Artist

The Gaslight Anthem is an American rock band from New Brunswick, New Jersey, formed in 2006. The band consists of Brian Fallon (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Alex Rosamilia (lead guitar, backing vocals), Alex Levine (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Benny Horowitz (drums, percussion). Their sound is most known for combining gritty melodic punk rock anthems with Springstein inspired rock and roll, and it's clear that bands like The Menzingers, Iron Chic, Spanish Love Songs and the like have all taken influence from The Gaslight Anthem.

The Gaslight Anthem released their debut album, Sink or Swim, on XOXO Records in May 2007, and their second album, The '59 Sound, on SideOneDummy Records in August 2008. The band's third album, American Slang, was released in June 2010, and their fourth, Handwritten, was released in July 2012 through Mercury Records. The band's fifth studio album, Get Hurt, was released on August 12, 2014, through Island Records. On July 29, 2015, the band announced an indefinite hiatus following their European summer tour. The band temporarily reunited for a string of shows in 2018 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of The '59 Sound, before resuming their hiatus.

In March 2022, the band announced that they had reunited and returned to "full time status", and that they had begun writing their sixth studio album. The album, titled History Books, is set to be released on October 27, 2023.
