According to this Craigslist ad, The Gaslight Anthem's new single will be the title track from Handwritten. The ad is a casting call for about nine actors to play different roles in a short film that will be edited into a music video for the song.
From the Casting CallSYNOPSIS: Set against the 1960s, this film follows the life of a vinyl record as it passes through time, touching lives, before finding its way home.

After posting about some vinyl preorders for The Gaslight Anthem's Handwritten and discovering a boatload of confusion about the preorder situation, I reached out to Infinite Merch to get some clarification. After I ordered the El Jefe preorder with the blue vinyl advertised (they note that they can't guarantee what color you'll get), they informed me that "The blue was put up because we were informed that the first pressing will be blue. That doesn't mean that our allotment in the second pressing won't be a color." They also confirmed that this is the official preorder from the band.

Check out a video interview with Brian Fallon about the story behind "45," here.
From the Article"I didn't know what was going to happen. After American Slang, after The '59 Sound, I was like, 'What am I gonna do?'" Fallon says in the exclusive video below. "Is there any more Gaslight songs? It's a scary thing when that feeling hits you. After we wrote the song '45,' I was like 'Thank God.' I just knew it was gonna be all right.

Looks like there will be three versions of the new The Gaslight Anthem album: the regular version, a deluxe edition (three bonus tracks), and a "super deluxe box set" version. If you're in the UK, those links will take you to pre-orders. The album will also be released on vinyl. The b-side cover of "You Got Lucky," from the single, can be heard in the replies.

Over the years I've worked on this website, there are a handful of interviews that have really stood out to me. A handful that I sit back and think, "yeah, those I'm really proud of." When I finished typing up the interview with Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem -- I immediately re-read through it, and had that feeling of pride. It's an interview that talks about a variety of topics, from the band's new album and the lyrical themes and "punishing sound" throughout, to the recent Against Me! news and Brian's thoughts on a wide range of topics. It's an interview that I think gets a little deeper into the mind of one of today's great songwriters -- and I hope you enjoy reading it as...

I had the pleasure of interviewing Brian Fallon from The Gaslight Anthem late last week. I'm in the midst of typing up the interview (transcribing is a pain in the ass), and I am planning on having it done and ready to publish tomorrow morning. But, since I've got a portion done now, I thought I'd toss up one of my favorite answers to tease the interview and get a little information out there for fans.
From the InterviewWell, lyrically, this one was no holds barred. Whatever I'm thinking right now, whatever I'm feeling, I'm putting on that page. And, I wasn't going to "edit" it … I mean, I edited it like crazy; hmmm, I wasn't going to censor it. I wasn't going to pull the, "would so...

The Gaslight Anthem shot a music video for "45" at The Stone Pony in Asbury Park yesterday. Instead of just playing the single over and over again, it appears as though the band played a couple of extra songs in between six performances of "45" for the crowd. One fan told us, "I've never seen Brian happier and he talked about a bunch of stuff on stage including Jesse Lacey, Bruce Springsteen, Jawbreaker, @jadedpunkhulk and more. The band also added a third guitarist." Check out a video from the video shoot in the replies along with the setlist.

JadedPunkHulk sat down and interviewed Brian Fallon from The Gaslight Anthem.
From the ArticleI feel that people sometimes judge other people upon things they like and form little groups of yes-men and women. They only want to be around people and listen to bands that think the same way they do. This is not everyone, and truthfully, it’s not even everyone on Punknews.org. I actually read that site all the time to find out what records are coming out, who’s on tour, etc. The reason I said what I said about some of the people on there, is that I see them lift people up and then drop them to the ground all the time. They take things too far sometimes, they threaten people, they talk...

Spin has posted an in-the-studio feature with The Gaslight Anthem.
From the ArticleContinues Fallon: "He would just straight up tell us that something wasn't good, or just say that's not a good song. Fortunately that didn't happen too often." O'Brien wasn't inclined to send the band back to tinker or pander. He'd just hit delete and move on. "If it's not good, he would throw it out," explains Fallon. "So that leaves you with a certain sense of not getting married to anything until it's actually on the record."

The Gaslight Anthem have posted a blog about the ongoing battle against scalpers.
From the BlogSo we’ve been made aware of this current ticket issue about people having too high a limit per person, which scalpers take advantage of. We’re actually not the ones who set that limit, we have very little control over how retailers who sell the tickets do things. There was that big war Pearl Jam had a few years back, and that didn’t end up great.

Right now, we’re trying to come up with a system to let the people who want the pre orders of tickets to have a fair chance to get them at a fair price. But it has to be for real fans who actually want the tickets, not scalpers who buy them to...
