Brawny New Jersey quartet providing an indie bar band spin on Bruce Springsteen's panoramic cars-and-girls blue collar rock.
The Gaslight Anthem arrived on the scene in 2007 with their debut album Sink or Swim, updating the heartland rock of their native New Jersey with a grittier, punk rock and a strong propensity for anthemic hooks. Having played together in various bands previously, lead singer and rhythm guitarist Brian Fallon, bassist Alex Levine, drummer Benny Horowitz and lead guitarist Alex Rosamilia began gigging in and around New Brunswick in 2006 as The Gaslight Anthem. Their debut full-length, Sink or Swim, featuring the likes of 'We Came To Dance' and 'Boomboxes and Dictionaries', quickly earnt high praise on the blogosphere.
