A quick guide to the rest of

GASLIGHT’S

cat­a­logue…

SINK OR SWIM (2007)

The Gaslight An­them had al­ready im­pressed with the ur­gent, melodic punk of their de­but. Its heart-on-sleeve sen­ti­ment and rough-around-the-edges mu­si­cian­ship made for an ex­hil­a­rat­ing pair­ing.

SEÑOR AND THE QUEEN (EP, 2008)

This four-track EP re­lease ex­panded on Brian Fallon’s al­ready promis­ing song­writ­ing with em­phatic proof that they could handle both hard-and-fast punk, as well as touch­ing bal­lads.

AMER­I­CAN SLANG (2010)

You can almost tell that the band knew they were on to an­other win­ner here, with Brian Fallon ad­mit­ting in the open­ing ti­tle­track: ‘Look what you started/i seem to be com­ing out of my skin’, as they con­tin­ued ful­fill­ing their rock’n’roll dreams. HAND­WRIT­TEN (2012) From the in­stant “45”, to the breath­less rush of Howl and Na­tional An­them, the NJ punks were fir­ing on all cylin­ders on their ma­jor la­bel de­but.

GET HURT (2014)

In­spired by bands who had taken left-turns in their ca­reer, The Gaslight An­them’s lat­est (and fi­nal?) al­bum was un­like any­thing that had come be­fore it. Less ac­ces­si­ble than its pre­de­ces­sors, but no less dy­namic.
