About The Gaslight Anthem


The Gaslight Anthem is an American rock band from New Brunswick, New Jersey, formed in 2006. The band consists of Brian Fallon , Alex Rosamilia , Alex Levine , and Benny Horowitz .


The Gaslight Anthem released their debut album, Sink or Swim, on XOXO Records in May 2007, and their second album, The '59 Sound, on SideOneDummy Records in August 2008. The band's third album, American Slang, was released in June 2010, and their fourth, Handwritten, was released in July 2012 through Mercury Records. The lead single from Handwritten, "45", became their most successful single on the charts, and possibly their most well known to date. The band's fifth studio album, Get Hurt, was released on August 12, 2014, through Island Records. On July 29, 2015, the band announced an indefinite hiatus following their European summer tour, which concluded at Reading Festival on Sunday 30 August. The band temporarily reunited for a string of shows in 2018 to celebrate the 10th anniversary of The '59 Sound, before resuming their hiatus.


In March 2022, the band announced that they had reunited and returned to "full time status", and that they had begun writing their sixth studio album. The album, titled History Books, was released on October 27, 2023.


Brian Fallon was in a number of bands prior to the Gaslight Anthem, most recently This Charming Man. The band went through a number of line-up changes, to the point where the band consisted of Fallon, Mike Volpe, Benny Horowitz, and Alex Levine. At this stage, the band renamed themselves to the Gaslight Anthem, due to a change in direction. After this, Volpe left and Alex Rosamilia joined, and the current line-up of the Gaslight Anthem was formed.


The band's first gig was at The Only Game in Town in Somerville, New Jersey, in early 2006.


The Gaslight Anthem's debut, Sink or Swim, was well received by both independent music review sites such as punknews.org, AbsolutePunk.net, and more mainstream publications such as Spin.com. The song "I Coul'da Been a Contender" was first played on commercial radio by Pete Lepore on "The Punkyard" specialty show on heritage NJ alternative station WHTG, G Rock Radio 106.3/106.5. In 2009, the song "I'da Called You Woody, Joe" was featured as part of the soundtrack of the video games Skate 2 and Skate It.
