Handwritten, the most committed, affecting and compelling album of The Gaslight Anthem’s career to date.
Introduced by muscular lead-off single 45, which received it’s world premiere on BBC Radio 1 as Zane Lowe’s Hottest Record In The World on April 30, it finds the Jersey boys in inspired form, decanting ’60′s soul, ’70′s stadium rock, ’80s hardcore and ’90′s grunge into eleven white-knuckle, blue-collar everyman anthems. Brian Fallon likens its incandescent electrical storms to “Tom Petty songs [being] played by Pearl Jam”. Put more simply, it’s a supercharged American rock ‘n’ roll classic.
We’ve taken everything we do and gone to 10 with it,” says the singer. “This is definitely the Gaslight Anthem record I would want next, if I were a fan. American Slang was cool, but this sounds like a band who has plugged back into the electric socket again.
