'Handwritten' - The Gaslight Anthem's first album on Mercury Records, was produced by two-time Grammy Award®-winner Brendan O'Brien, known for his work with Bruce Springsteen (Best Rock Album Grammy, 2002), Pearl Jam, Incubus and many others. The result is the most committed, affecting and compelling album of The Gaslight Anthem's career to date. Introduced by muscular lead-off single '45', which received it's world premiere on BBC Radio 1 as Zane Lowe's Hottest Record In The World on April 30 (and is now on B-List rotation on the station), it finds the Jersey boys in inspired form, decanting '60's soul, '70's stadium rock, '80s hardcore and '90's grunge into eleven white-knuckle, blue-collar everyman anthems. Brian Fallon likens its incandescent electrical storms to "Tom Petty songs [being] played by Pearl Jam". Put more simply, it's a supercharged American rock 'n' roll classic.
The full track listing for 'Handwritten' is as follows:
3. Here Comes My Man
4. Mulholland Drive
6. Too Much Blood
8. Biloxi Parish
Prior to 'Handwritten', The Gaslight Anthem ' Brian Fallon (lead vocals, guitar), Alex Rosamilia (guitar, vocals), Alex Levine (bass, vocals), and Benny Horowitz (drums, percussion) ' released three full-length indie albums: Sink Or Swim (2007, XOXO Records), The '59 Sound (2008, SideOneDummy Records), and American Slang (June 2010, SideOneDummy).
