2010, the year of music, or at least the year of follow-ups to previous stunner of albums. It’s March, and I have lost count of all the HIGHLY-anticipated ’10 releases waiting to be unveiled upon our ears. The Gaslight Anthem are giving me another reason why 2010 is going to be no joke, musically speaking, with American Slang:
The Gaslight Anthem have unveiled the cover art and track listing for their forthcoming album: AMERICAN SLANG (SideOneDummy Records). AMERICAN SLANG is set for release in the U.S. and Canada on June 15th, and around the world that same week. Produced by Ted Hutt (who produced the band’s acclaimed second album, THE ’59 SOUND), AMERICAN SLANG heralds a dramatic leap forward for The Gaslight Anthem. Tracks such as “Bring It On,” “Orphans” and “Stay Lucky” bristle and burn with the spirit of soul and the artistic adventurousness and impressive confidence of a band that has come into its own and found its own voice.
