In what is now an annual tradition, we’re playing catch up during this final week of the year. If this post seems outdated, that’s because it is. Happy Holidays!

After 2008’s breakthrough album, ‘The ’59 Sound’, The Gaslight Anthem found themselves pigeonholed as Springsteen wannabes. Sure, he’s a huge inspiration and the band quoted a few of The Boss’ lyrics on that record, but they’re equally as infl uenced by punk and soul – previous lyrical citations include Sam Cooke, Tom Waits, Bob Dylan and The Clash. Still, with this year’s sublime third eff ort, ‘American Slang’, the band decided it was time to move away from all of that. “There are no quotes on this record,” explains singer Brian Fallon. “This is our record. It’s not Bruce’s record, it’s not Bob Dylan’s record. It’s ours, the record we made on our own.” [Clash Music]

The Gaslight Anthem, who are playing Bamboozle in 2011, headlined Radio City Music Hall on 9/30. Rival Schools, who have a set of 2011 dates coming up, opened the show. A set of pictures from the show are in this post. They continue, with Rival Schools’ new video for “Shot after Shot”, and Gaslight’s setlist, below…
