The Gaslight Anthem

Playing gritty sweat-soaked punk laced with Americana, The Gaslight Anthem hit it big with their third album American Slang, helped by the patronage of famous fan and fellow New Jersey singer Bruce Springsteen. Strongly influenced by the Jersey punk movement, they released their first album Sink Or Swim in 2007, which was well received, leading to the four-track EP Senor & The Queen and then their second full album, The '59 Sound (2008). This was voted Number 1 album of the year by the eMusic website; they also covered God's Gonna Cut You Down on a Johnny Cash tribute album. However, their reputation in Europe rocketed after Bruce Springsteen guested with them at the 2009 Glastonbury Festival; in 2010 they made a series of high profile festival appearances and, pursuing a more traditional rock direction, their third album American Slang became a hit on both sides of the Atlantic.
