The Gaslight Anthem Biography - Leading Lights of the Rock Scene
Inspired by the sound and attitude of artists such as Tom Petty and The Clash, frontman Brian Fallon brought the group
together in 2005. Shifting their line-up regularly during their formative years, they eventually settled on the combination
of musicians Benny Horowitz, Alex Levine and Alex Rosamilia and hit the studio. Making their name on the live circuit locally,
they eventually became a national concern with the release of the debut album Sink or Swim. Around this time, the British
music press also started taking notice, with metal bible Kerrang! putting them on the cover and heralding them as the
saviours of honest, heart-on-sleeve rock. Buoyed by the coverage, their 2008 LP The '59 Sound entered the charts and
saw its sales skyrocket when the band was joined onstage by their hero Bruce Sprinsteen during shows in the UK. Hitting the
Top 20 in UK and US with 2010 follow-up American Slang as a result, 2012's Handwritten saw them break
the upper echelons of the charts.
Now pencilled in to support The Killers during their huge 2013 Wembley Stadium summer shows, the band are one of the rock
circuit's biggest draws. Don't miss their upcoming UK appearances - buy The Gaslight Anthem tickets on StubHub UK today.
