The Gaslight Anthem aren’t ashamed to follow in the footsteps of their fellow New Jersian Bruce Springsteen – they’ve spent three great albums making driving, riff-packed rock that’s emotional without being pathetic (far from it), passionate but not overbearing, drawing inspiration from the Boss as well as other big names in American classic rock. Their new single “45” speaks to tradition in more than one way – the surface level might be the most obvious (they’re talking about vinyl, guys!) but listen to that limitlessly catchy riff and that chugging groove and you might be reminded of the stuff your parents used to play on the tape player in their station wagon when you were a kid, in the best way. The band’s new record Handwritten is due out July 24.
