The Gaslight Anthem is excited to announce additional tour dates on their upcoming Fall North American headline tour, a tour being supported by Fake Problems as well as The Menzingers, Rival Schools and Bridge and Tunnel on select dates. Presale tickets for the Fall tour dates announced this week can be purchased via http://tix.concertmaps.com/thegaslightanthempresale/ before general onsale commences at the end of this week.
The band’s full Fall tour kicks off September 4 in Lincoln, NE, and will continue through the first half of October, including a headline appearance in New York City at Radio City Music Hall on September 30, before culminating with The Gaslight Anthem’s October 9 appearance at the Austin City Limits Music Festival in Austin, Texas. The Gaslight Anthem recently toured North America with Tim Barry (Avail) and Chamberlain and are now performing European club and festival dates before returning for their Fall headline tour.
The critical praise for the band and AMERICAN SLANG has been global, with outlets such as Pitchfork stating the album “ultimately proves The Gaslight Anthem are not afraid to move forward,” and TIME Magazine declaring “if you like your classic rock tinged with romantic nostalgia, this quartet is the best thing on offer.” Additionally, SPIN Magazine gave the album eight out of 10 stars in its lead review for July, and NPR praised the band within its “All Things Considered” feature as well as the coveted “First Listen” exclusive album stream that gave listeners a chance to preview AMERICAN SLANG one week prior to its release date. The band also recently performed their latest single, “Boxer,” on LATE NIGHT WITH JIMMY FALLON and performed the title track to the album on THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO.
AMERICAN SLANG was released globally the week of June 15, 2010 on SideOneDummy Records. Produced by Ted Hutt (who produced the band’s acclaimed second album, THE ’59 SOUND), AMERICAN SLANG heralds a dramatic leap forward for the New Jersey-based band. Tracks such as “Bring It On,” “Orphans” and “Stay Lucky” bristle and burn with the spirit of soul and the artistic adventurousness and confidence of a band that has come into its own and truly found its own voice.
