Gaslight Anthem Sign to Mercury Records, Prep New Album for 2012 Release
What might be most surprising about the latter anouncement, though, is that the troupe have jumped ship from longtime label SideOneDummy for the big leagues, inking up with Mercury Records.
A representative for SideOneDummy, which had released the New Jersey outfit's last two records (2008's The '59 Sound and 2010's American Slang), confirmed to Alternative Press that the band have left the label. Don't worry, though, there's apparently no bad feelings.
"We can confirm this," the company rep said. "We are super happy for the dudes in Gaslight and wish them the best!"
The band have yet to make a statement about the new chapter in their recording career, but the new record, which they started working on in the summer, is expected sometime next year.
As previously reported, the Gaslight Anthem's iTunes Session drops digitally on December 13.
