descriptionUS LP pressing. With 'American Slang', The Gaslight Anthem makes an extraordinary leap forward towards that very goal. The New Jersey-based band's third long player reveals a remarkably powerful rock 'n' roll outfit honed by two years of nearly non-stop touring. Singer/guitarist Fallon's passionate lyrical approach has grown more personal and introspective, his raw throated vocals stronger and more resonant against the band's pulse-pounding dynamic force. Songs like 'Bring It On', 'Orphans' and the rousing title track bristle and burn with the spirit of soul, the energy of punk, and the artistic ambition of any hall of famer you'd care to name. 'American Slang' is the battle cry of a great band finding its own voice and using it to shout to the rooftops and beyond.The band began getting together for writing sessions at their longtime friend Kyle Roggendorf's basement in Parlin, NJ.
