New Jersey rockers the Gaslight Anthem have just announced that they’ll be “taking a break” after their European tour in August in support of last year’s Get Hurt.

Jim James, Seth Avett, Brian Fallon, & More Cover Blind Melon

Last month, director and band photographer Danny Clinch launched a Kickstarter to raise funds for a documentary about Blind Melon’s late frontman Shannon Hoon, which will be made up of home-video footage that Hoon shot during the band’s rise to fame.

Edgy And Dull: 20 Covers Of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire,” Rated

A few weeks back, we premiered Low’s cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “I’m On Fire,” and it was great (more on that below). It’s their contribution to a forthcoming Springsteen tribute titled Dead Man’s Town, a compilation marking the thirtieth anniversary of Born In The U.S.A. (and taking its name from that album’s title track). Betwee… More »

Stream The Gaslight Anthem Get Hurt

On their four previous studio albums, the New Jersey rockers the Gaslight Anthem have charted a steady course away from the earnest trad-punk of their 2007 debut Sink Or Swim, toward the grandly triumphant festival-rock of Handwritten, without really altering their hardscrabble tough-but-wounded personality. The band’s new album Get Hurt attempts to push that curve… More »

The Gaslight Anthem – “Rollin’ And Tumblin'” Video

Rollin’ and Tumblin’” was our first taste of the Gaslight Anthem’s new album Get Hurt, which is shaping up to be the band’s most stylistically diverse album yet. Now that song has gotten the video treatment and it’s a crisp black-and-white affair that sees the band playing opposite a group of elegant dancers who have… More »

The Gaslight Anthem – “Stay Vicious”

The Gaslight Album’s next album is going to be pretty different. Get Hurt, their latest, arrives next month, and we’ve already heard the vaguely bluesy “Rollin’ And Tumblin’” and the synth-laced title track. “Stay Vicious,” the third album track that the band has shared, switches back and forth between tough-guy twinkle and brontosaurus-stomp riffage, and… More »

The Gaslight Anthem – “Get Hurt” Video

Jersey rockers the Gaslight Anthem will release their new album Get Hurt next month, and the album’s title track, which we posted a little while back, is a surprisingly Killers-esque turn for a band who used to occupy the middle ground between Bruce Springsteen and Social Distortion. The song’s brand-new video takes place in one… More »

The Gaslight Anthem – “Get Hurt”

Recently, New Jersey rockers the Gaslight Anthem announced their forthcoming album Get Hurt, the follow-up to 2012’s Handwritten, and they shared the clean, chugging first single “Rollin’ And Tumblin’.” And now they’re sharing the LP’s title track, which sounds more like the Killers than I ever expected the Gaslight Anthem to sound. “Get Hurt” i… More »

The Gaslight Anthem – “Rollin’ And Tumblin'”

Last week, Jersey rockers the Gaslight Anthem announced the impending release of their new LP Get Hurt, the follow-up to 2012’s durable road-trip banger Handwritten. Last night, they shared the new track “Rollin’ And Tumblin’,” the first single from Get Hurt, and it’s a ragged, straightahead modern-rock howler, more produced than most of what we’ve… More »

The Gaslight Anthem Announce New Album Get Hurt

It doesn’t feel right to call New Jersey’s Gaslight Anthem a punk band anymore. Instead, in the wake of 2012’s deeply satisfying Handwritten, it makes more sense to call them one of the best straight-up no-qualifiers rock bands currently operating on a larger stage. The band has just announced plans for Get Hurt, album number… More »

Watch The Gaslight Anthem On Conan

The Gaslight Anthem, who are fast becoming a late-night TV staple, served as musical guests on last night’s episode of Conan. There, they trotted out the recent single “Here Comes My Man,” one of the standouts from the pretty great new album Handwritten. Brian Fallon’s voice is getting better all the time, seriously. Watch it… More »

The Gaslight Anthem – “Skinny Love” (Bon Iver Cover)

Why, it was just last week that we heard Gaslight Anthem covering Foo Fighters’ “Everlong,” and already we’ve got another seemingly random cover from the band. Their version of Bon Iver’s breakout track, “Skinny Love,” is featured on the Gaslight Anthem’s new Here Comes My Man EP. To me, it sounds a little bit like… More »

Watch The Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon Cover Foo Fighters’ “Everlong”

The Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon once referenced a fucking Counting Crows lyric in a song, so you know he’s not too cool to cover a late-’90s Foo Fighters hit. And during a recent BBC Radio session, Fallon did just that, turning in a sleepy take on the Foos’ immortal 1997 car-radio anthem “Everlong.” Watch… More »

The Gaslight Anthem – “Here Comes My Man” Video (Starring Elisha Cuthbert)

I think most people know Elisha Cuthbert as Kim Bauer on 24, but for me, it’s all about her role as Alex Kerkovich on Happy Endings, on which she gets to display her impressive comic chops, and which — huge coincidence! — comes back for its season 3 premiere tonight. Why such a coincidence? Because… More »

Watch The Gaslight Anthem Play Leno

On last night’s episode of The Tonight Show, a particularly rumpled-looking Gaslight Anthem invaded Jay Leno’s bright neon-pastel set to growl out “Here Comes My Man,” one of the highlights from their strong new album Handwritten. Leno, who I’m starting to sort of like after his Louie story arc, was awfully personable. Watch it below. More »

Album Of The Week: The Gaslight Anthem Handwritten

When the Gaslight Anthem first crossed my radar four years ago, I remember being overjoyed that a punk band like this could still exist, that there was still gold left in them thar hills. The Gaslight Anthem that recorded The ’59 Sound, their ridiculously great 2008 breakout, were proud inheritors of a brawny, no-bullshit Jersey… More »

The Gaslight Anthem – “Handwritten” Video

The Gaslight Anthem’s new album Handwritten is out tomorrow, and the band has already unveiled a video for first single “45.” That clip was about as simple as it comes: Just the band playing for an extremely amped crowd in a Jersey club. But director Kevin Slack’s new video for the album’s title track ha… More »

Stream The Gaslight Anthem Handwritten

Next week, durable Jersey rock scrappers the Gaslight Anthem drop their fourth album Handwritten. First single “45” has already turned out to be a rare thing: A straight-up rock song that works perfectly as a summer driving anthem.

Watch The Gaslight Anthem Live From Letterman

Last night, Jersey bashers the Gaslight Anthem showed up on the Late Show With David Letterman, chugging their way through the new single “45,” a song that gets better every time I hear it. And they also did an hour-long Live From Letterman webcast, including at least one brand-new, unheard song in their set. Check… More »

The Gaslight Anthem – “45” Video

Handwritten, the new album from the great Jersey band the Gaslight Anthem, is on the way, and today we get the video for the hearty first single “45.” The clip is about as straightforward as these things get: Just the band playing the Asbury Park venue the Stone Pony. Brian Fallon, it should be noted,… More »
