Finally, the American combo comes back to Berlin. With The Gaslight Anthem, punk touches meet the rock of a young Springsteen, blues rock meets Americana, acoustic guitars alternate with hard electric riffs. After eight years, The Gaslight Anthem have a lot of news to share.
The quartet finally wants to perform live again and finally produce new music. Their website shows a half-minute video and you can hear the line "hey, turn the record over" from the megahit "45" from the ten-year-old "Handwritten" album. Is something coming? Yes, something is coming!
Fans can already look forward to their current live performances. "We don't want to just be a footnote in music history," singer Brian Fallon said early in the career, "we want to be The Ones, y'know?" But that's what he, guitarist Alex Rosamilia, bassist Alex Levine and drummer Ben Horowitz have long been to their loyal fans.
