The Gaslight Anthem will release their new album, Handwritten, on July 23.
The album was produced by Brendan O'Brien. The band recorded the follow-up to 2010's American Slang in Nashville and have confirmed via their Twitter account Twitter.com/Gaslightanthem that they have also recently recorded a number of covers and a selection of B-sides.
The Gaslight Anthem's brand new single, "45", received its world premiere last night [April 30] on BBC Radio 1 and was named DJ Zane Lowe's Hottest Record in the World.
The world of Lawrence is, by all accounts, a strange one. A singer once told me that, while visiting Lawrence at home, he was taken urgently by the need to use the lavatory. As the story was presented me, Lawrence flatly refused and the singer was forced to go outside to relieve himself. No one, it seems, uses the toilet chez Lawrence, apart from Lawrence.
