The Gaslight Anthem Announce New Album, Share Single & Tour Dates

    New Jersey quartet the Gaslight Anthem have announced a new album called Handwritten, out July 24 on Mercury Records. It’ll be the group’s first release for the label, and it was made in collaboration with veteran rock producer Brendan O’Brien, who’s also done work for Bruce Springsteen and Pearl Jam among countless others.

    You can hear the album’s no-bullshit first single, “45,” below, and also check out Gaslight‘s upcoming tour dates. The kickoff show, May 16 at Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg, will be live streamed, which is pretty cool. [P4K]
