Gaslight Anthem Announce 'Handwritten' Album, Premiere New Track

Gaslight Anthem Announce 'Handwritten' Album, Premiere New Track
Last year, rock-driven punk guys the Gaslight Anthem announced they would make the jump from indie label SideOneDummy to Mercury Records for their next LP, and the group have now revealed that the disc, titled Handwritten, arrives this summer.

Brendan O'Brien (Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam) produced the new 11-track album, which will drop on July 24. Before then, the new single "45" will arrive digitally on May 8, with the driving rock number, which uses the idea of the seven-inch single as a metaphor for life, already streaming down below courtesy of Rolling Stone.

"This song felt to us like we still had something to say in this long line of rock'n'roll tradition," singer/guitarist Brian Fallon told Rolling Stone. "It made the path clear as to what we should do next. Sometimes you just have to leave things behind ... turn the record over."

Gaslight Anthem will also be out on the road throughout the Spring and Summer seasons, though no Canadian dates have been scheduled. Check out the tour itinerary below.
