High-octane rock outfit the Gas Light Anthem have led a steady storm up the charts since releasing their debut album Sink or Swim in 2007. The hard-charging foursome are known for their energetic live shows, where frontman Brian Fallon lends his formidable pipes to anthems like "45" and "American Slang" while the band keeps pace with an impressive onslaught of driving guitar and pounding drums. With their fifth album Get Hurt hitting shelves in 2014, the band has fans eagerly awaiting their next live shows.
The Gaslight Anthem formed amid New Brunswick, NJ's punk scene in the mid-'00s, making a name for themselves with their soulful approach to punk rock and extensive touring throughout the Northeast. Their 2007 debut Sink or Swim earned them a considerable cult following, paving the way for the mainstream success they enjoyed soon after with sophomore album The '59 Sound, which eMusic rated its No. 1 album of 2008. The band's live show further boosted their popularity as they continued to tour as both a headlining act and an opener for Social Distortion and Bruce Springsteen. They became a familiar chart presence in 2010 with the release of American Slang, but it was 2012's Handwritten that really cracked things wide open, landing at No. 3 in the US and No. 2 in the UK. Dedicated performers who've racked up more tour hours than most bands twice their age, the boys of the Gaslight Anthem bring the goods every time they take the stage.
