The Gaslight Anthem at Radio City in 2010 (more by Chris La Putt)
Gaslight Anthem

The Gaslight Anthem have finished recording their new album, Handwritten, which they hope to release this summer. The album will be their major label debut (it's due out on Mercury Records) and was produced by Brendan O'Brien.

Plans for a North American tour are forthcoming, but before that, they'll be previewing material from the new album in Brooklyn on May 16 at Music Hall of Williamsburg. It will be an intimate show for the band whose previous trip to NYC was a Radio City show in late 2010. Artist presale tickets went on sale yesterday and are sold out. Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday (4/13) at noon. The show is doubling as a benefit for Food Bank NYC. Here's what the band has to say about the benefit:

For this show, The Gaslight Anthem and Bowery Presents are working with Food Bank For New York City to hold a Food & Fund Drive to collect canned goods and funds for hungry New Yorkers. Please join us in bringing nonperishable food donations and putting them in the white food drive bins located by the front door of the venue. The top ten most needed items include canned beans, milk, fruit, vegetable, juice, meat, fish, soup, stew and peanut butter.

We are also holding a Virtual Food Drive as another way to donate, information/link coming shortly.

The Gaslight Anthem are also playing the Metallica-headlined Orion Music & More festival in Atlantic City, NJ (6/23) at Bader Field. They're also part of the just-announced Lollapalooza lineup.

All announced dates are listed below...

'Not into this band but kudos to them organizing a food drive, which is more than I can say for so-called hardcore punk band "Refused".

Hey, we're Refused. Let's play a 3000-capacity room in the middle of Manhattan for two nights but not have a food drive and better bands than Ceremony (who play NYC more than most NYC hardcore punk bands) and Cerebral Ballzy (who suck dick) open our shows cuz they're on Matador Records and Adult Swim Records who paid us to have them open. Let's not have local/area bands save the pay to players CB.

LOL, how true. Oh, and don't forget Flogging Molly (holy shit, Bouncing Souls has competition for the goofiest band name ever) along with the rest of that nonsense.
