The Gaslight Anthem is led by Brian Fallon (vocals/guitar), along with Alex Rosamilia (guitar/backing vocals), Alex Levine (bass/backing vocals) and Benny Horowitz (drums/percussion). The band formed in New Brunswick, N.J. in 2006. Since then, The Gaslight Anthem has swiftly risen to fame and critical acclaim, especially in the underground punk scene, as a result of the release of three highly praised albums, Sink or Swim (2007), The ’59 Sound (2008) and, most recently, American Slang (2010). On June 24, the band will release Handwritten, featuring the lead single “45.” The album, which took the band to Nashville to record and connect with their rock roots, is produced by famed producer Brendan O’Brien who has worked with Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam and AC/DC. The Gaslight Anthem’s resulting major label debut is an auditory letter written from the band to their passionate fans.
The Gaslight Anthem’s LIVE ON LETTERMAN webcast will follow the taping of their performance on the LATE SHOW with DAVID LETTERMAN, which will be broadcast the following evening, Thursday, June 28 (11:35 PM-12:37 AM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.
