Biography

New Brunswick, New York NJ, United States (2006 – present)

The Gaslight Anthem is a band from New Brunswick, New Jersey. Since forming in 2006, they have released four full-length albums and an EP. They were described by Kerrang! magazine as “the best new band you’ll hear in 2008.” The lineup consists of Brian Fallon (vocals and guitar), Alex Levine (bass), Benny Horowitz (drums), and Alex Rosamilia (guitar).

The Gaslight Anthem’s music embraces many elements of blues, classic rock, and punk rock. The band has described their sound as “Bruce Springsteen singing for a Cure cover band, with a tinge more aggression.” The group’s fondness for Springsteen, a significant influence on their music, is celebrated by fans and critics alike. Representative of such views, one critic wrote, “The Gaslight Anthem are like something out of speculative fiction: this is what pop music would be if Springsteen hadn’t listened to his producer, let the Ramones record ‘Hungry Heart,’ and launched the C.B.G.B.’ers into megastardom.”

The band released its first LP, Sink or Swim, in 2007 through XOXO Records, and toured with many reputable bands, including Against Me!, The Draft, Dead to Me, and Fake Problems.

The Gaslight Anthem’s second release, a 4-song EP entitled Señor and the Queen, was released on January 29th, 2008 by Sabot Productions.

    I think "Get Hurt" is their best album since The 59 sound. [2]

    Get Hurt just sounds more dynamic. Sure, it has it's hiccups and misses, but to call this record trash is pretty over-the-top. As of now, I like Handwritten more than Get Hurt but I definitely still enjoy it.

    If anyone got Have Mercy as a lossless file, please give me a hint. It's a shame it's only on the iTunes copy (and just in aac quality).

    senor and the queen, along with sink or swim is grand. 59 sound was good too. It's ashame they've become more popular with their latest albums, since it's the same thing but not as good. Tis all subjective though peeps. enjoy them brian seems a swell guy

    Get Hurt is pretty good, and better than Handwritten. The B-Sides is good too, She Loves You is a awesome track.

    I had a great time listening to, and photographing, Gaslight Anthem at TURF in Toronto. It was my third time seeing them, and definitely the best: My pics are here: http://www.oneintenwords.com/2014/08/turf-day-2-band-6-gaslight-anthem.html

    I really can't see how 'Get Hurt' marks this big change in their sound that Brian was talking about. It is more of the same, just better than 'Handwritten' by miles.

    Band has been getting progressively worse since '59 Sound, and Get Hurt marks them entering utter trash territory. Shame.

    Ignored it until now. After "Handwritten" and one boring concert in my hometown last year I feared, GA and I live separate lifes in the future. I was wrong. "Get Hurt" is awesome, indeed.
