Gaslight Anthem play Olympia in November
Heart-on-sleeve rockers The Gaslight Anthem will return to Ireland for shows in the Olympia (November 21st) and Belfast's Mandela Hall (22nd). The New Jersey-based four-piece lived the dream last year when they were joined onstage by their hero Bruce Springsteen at Glastonbury. They've just released their third album, American Slang, which seems to be getting somewhat mixed reviews, although it got a five-star write-up in Uncut. 'The '59 Sound' remains one of the best songs of recent years: poignant, cathartic, defiant...the stuff of great, timeless rock music.
