The Gaslight Anthem
are promising a "completely different vibe"
on new album "Get Hurt
Speaking to NME
about the change in sound the band have undergone during the making of the LP, the band frontman Brian Fallon
said: "You get a realisation at some point in your career that whatever it is you do, you can no longer continue to do it. You just realise you can't put out the same records forever."
Key to this change was the 1975
and their debut album
. The band tracked down producer Mike Crossey
in an effort to see if they could tap into something similar to the British group. "We were like, 'well that sounds different – what would happen if a band like us works with a guy who makes records sound like that?'"
The frontman even admits that he surprised himself with the album. "I think people are going to be like, 'Wow, I didn't know a band that play punk rock could play something that heavy, or something that pretty. I think also there are some sings that are realy calm, and I don't know if people knew that we could do that. i didn't know that we could do that."
The release of "Get Hurt" will be supported by a five-date UK tour in November, which will see the band playing their biggest ever UK headline shows, including a date at London's Alexandra Palace on November 19, and gigs in Manchester, Cardiff, Birmingham and Edinburgh.
