New Jersey rock act The Gaslight Anthem are set to release their fourth studio album this summer, on July 24 via Mercury Records. The album will be called Handwritten and it’s the follow-up to 2010’s American Slang, and the first single from the album, “45”, premiered yesterday.
The full-length is produced by Brendan O’Brien, who has previously produced The Gaslight Anthem’s main influence Bruce Springsteen as well as Pearl Jam and Stone Temple Pilots. Judging by “45” O’Brien’s prudction suits The Gaslight Anthem far better than it did Springsteen and the song itself should please every fan of the band. Listen to it below.
Plugging away since 1999, The National finally hit mainstream success with the release of their 2010 album High Violet. Of course, this entailed their first world tour, but in the new documentary Mistaken For Strangers, it’s only the backdrop for the relationship between lead singer Matt Berninger and his younger brother Tom, who had no idea that these short videos he was shooting would turn into a public document of their troubled, if still loving brotherhood.
