History Books: The Return of The Gaslight Anthem After Nearly a Decade

The Gaslight Anthem, an American rock band hailing from New Brunswick, New Jersey, is set to release "History Books," their eagerly awaited sixth studio album, in 2023. The album, produced by Peter Katis, marks the band's first original material in nine years. This comes on the heels of their reunion in March 2022 and a successful world tour.

Formed in 2006, the band features Brian Fallon on vocals and guitar, Alex Rosamilia on guitar and backing vocals, Alex Levine on bass and backing vocals, and Benny Horowitz on drums and percussion. They are celebrated for their unique blend of punk rock and heartland rock, drawing frequent comparisons to iconic artists like Bruce Springsteen.

The Gaslight Anthem first garnered significant acclaim with their 2008 release, "The '59 Sound." The album stood out for its lyrical storytelling, delving into themes of nostalgia, love, and the complexities of working-class life. It garnered multiple awards and found its way into several "Best of the Year" lists.

Throughout their career, The Gaslight Anthem has consistently received positive reviews for their subsequent albums and have built a dedicated fanbase through extensive touring, including sharing stages with notable acts. Although the band went on an indefinite hiatus in 2015, they briefly reunited in 2018 for a series of shows celebrating the 10th anniversary of "The '59 Sound." Their influence endures, and they are widely regarded as one of the most impactful rock bands of their generation.
