View Full Version : The Gaslight Anthem

Has anyone heard these guys before? They are a Jersey Shore rock influenced punk band. So far they've made their biggest buzz in the UK even though their sound is pure Americana.

I saw them in a living room in Philadelphia last summer before they really took off but I'm surprised they haven't become even bigger. If you really like the Jersey/Philly sound and/or you are looking for some great driving music, give them a look.


Great Expectations and Casanova Baby are great tunes.

Got a 7" single and the new album. I really like their sound. Great band.

Also check out the band "Fake Problems". Not entirely the same as Gaslight Anthem, but there are some similarities.

They are both on Side One Dummy Records.
