If you’re one of the many fans of New Jersey rock outfit, the Gaslight Anthem, then you are in for some major good news because the band not only revealed that a new album is on the horizon, but that they will be heading out on tour to support it.
The new album will be titled, Get Hurt and is slated for a release date of August 19. This new album marks the band’s fifth record and follows 2012’s Handwritten.
Unlike their previous works, frontman Brian Fallon has said that this album would be different than the ones before it, describing it as “completely different than anything we had ever done before.”
“Instead of going that extra step of just adding some organs to some background vocals, this time we actually really changed up a lot of the sounds,” he told Rolling Stone last month.
“There are certain new songs where you might say ‘Oh, that could have been on Handwritten,’ or ‘That could have been on 59 Sound,’ but there are some songs where you’re going to be like, ‘This has never been touched by this band before.'”
In the interview he goes on to say that they took on a “first-person” writing approach even citing Bob Dylan as inspiration for that.
Like it had been said before, the news of the new album wasn’t the only good thing that was revealed. the band will be hitting the road beginning on September 10 in Washington, D.C. with Against Me! for their 2014 tour.
On a side note, it was also revealed that one of the tour stops would not only feature The Gaslight Anthem and Against Me!, but Jimmy Eat World will also be present.
