NEW ALBUM HANDWRITTEN OUT JULY 24 ON MERCURY RECORDS
As they put their spring and summer performance plans together, starting with initial sold-out intimate gigs at the Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn (May 16) and the Roxy in West Hollywood (May 18), a return to CBS's The Late Show with David Letterman (June 28), and a performance on NBC's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (July 27), New Jersey-based The Gaslight Anthem premiered their brand new single, "45," on Rollingstone.com.

"45" is the first advance track from Handwritten, the band's fourth album, scheduled for a July 24 release on Mercury Records, a division of Island Def Jam Music Group. Handwritten was produced by two-time Grammy Award-winner Brendan O'Brien, known for his work with Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam, Incubus, and many others.
In addition to the shows in Williamsburg and West Hollywood (which both sold out in minutes), The Gaslight Anthem has already set a number of major festival appearances, including opening for Bon Jovi at Bamboozle in Asbury Park, NJ, on May 20; appearing at the Metallica Orion Festival in Atlantic City, NJ, on June 23; and Lollapalooza at Grant Park in Chicago.
