The Gaslight Anthem are pleased to announce their upcoming winter and spring 2015 headlining tour. Touring in support of its recently released album Get Hurt, The Gaslight Anthem will be making a number of appearances across North America that will include dates in markets such as New York, NY on Saturday, February 28, Cleveland, OH on Wednesday, March 11, Minneapolis, MN on Friday, March 13, Vancouver, BC on Thursday, March 19, Seattle, WA on Friday, March 20, Denver, CO on Tuesday, March 24 and more. The tour will culminate in a performance at Newport Music Hall in Columbus, OH on Saturday, March 28. To celebrate the announcement of the upcoming tour, the band has released the music video for their new single, 1,000 Years, that was filmed in mid 2014 at the legendary First Avenue in Minneapolis, MN. Check out the video HERE. Get Hurt was recorded at the legendary Blackbird Studios in Nashville with producer Mike Crossey (The 1975, Arctic Monkeys, Jake Bugg). With this new album, The Gaslight Anthem has chosen to push their music farther than ever before, not via extra instrumentation or expanded arrangements, but by blowing up the template from stem to stern. Massive melodies and shout-to-the-top choruses are still well in hand, but songs like 1,000 Years and the searing title track draw on grunge and symphonic pop, soul and psychedelia, all shot through with limitless ambition, experimental energy, and collectivist spirit. It wasnt exactly clear when we started what we were going to do, says singer/guitarist Brian Fallon of Get Hurt. We just knew we had to change it up in order to maintain being a relevant band to ourselves. There really wasnt anything else to say or do on those avenues that we had already walked on. The Gaslight Anthem faced a dilemma that has confronted many bands in a similar position how to keep on growing while holding true to the initial vision that has earned them a legion of fervent fans around the world. Their response is audacious, energized and enduring. Get Hurt might be defiantly transitional, but at its heart, The Gaslight Anthems song remains the same. You can never lose who you are, Fallon says. No matter how much you change, you can never lose that core of what makes you you. If youre honest with yourself, that core remains. You dont find yourself lost in some genre you have no business being in you create your own.
