Reading + Leeds - 2012 The Gaslight Anthem



24 Aug 2012 Main Stage

26 Aug 2012 Main Stage

Great Expectations

Returning to Reading + Leeds for the fourth time, The Gaslight Anthem continue to make their own path in creating soul-inspired punk rock that borrows from inspirations The Replacements and Arcade Fire.

Most recent album Handwritten was recorded in Nashville and released earlier this year to strong reviews from NME plus Zane Lowe claiming first single 45 his Hottest Record in the World.

Fellow New Jersey boy Bruce Springsteen is a known fan, joining the band at both Glastonbury and Hard Rock Calling in 2009 whilst performing The '59 Sound. With The Boss signed up, make time to get to know these Americana rock 'n' roll pioneers.
