Anyone discovered this band yet?
Well I have and I think they're incredible, imagine Against Me! fronted by Bruce Springsteen jamming with The Cure
Here they are www.myspace.com/thegaslightanthem


Seeing them in Berlin on the 21st, what are other peoples views?

They're pretty cool. I'm seeing them in October which should be cool.
They kind of remind me of The Killers, but much much better.

I tried them out, and I don't like them that much.
Something about the vocals along with the style of the music.
Pretty typical combination.

Yeah a friend of mine has been raving about this band for months. They're pretty damn sweet. I can dig the Springsteen influence.

^I was actually gonna ask that happy.gif

It was a pretty bitchin' performance. They sounded even more like Bruce Springsteen while they were on there.

I love The Gaslight Anthem. The '59 Sound is easily one of my favorite albums of 2008.

I'm the Music Director at my college's alternative radio station and discovered this band a long while ago when a rep sent me their CD in the mail. Awesome tunes.

fuck this is probably one of the very few new bands that has excited me. they are amazing.
am stoked i get to interview them soon for my mates zine.
can easily see them fitting in on a bill with green day.

saw them on letterman playing the 59 sound last week, seemed genuinely stoked to be on the show, smiling from ear to ear.
good guys.
