Posted by - 03:28 PM on 06/16/12
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.

I think they get to hear a clip of the song, to get the general feel. The band 'Why?' just posted something on facebook looking for some people to be involved in a video and they stated 'those who are chosen will get a sneak peek at the song from the video'. So im assuming this is what usually happens.

I don't think so. I've been in a few music videos and been on set for about another 5 or so and only when the band is performing do they play the song. And since this is a short film that will later be edited into a music video, I don't think they will hear anything.

Damn. That's a bummer. Still pretty cool to be a part of but I would've hoped to hear the single
