The Gaslight Anthem recently announced a one-off UK show for this summer. The New Jersey band will play London’s KOKO venue on June 11.
The band recorded the follow-up to 2010’s ‘American Slang’ in Nashville and have also confirmed via their Twitter account Twitter.com/Gaslightanthem that they have also recently recorded a number of covers and a selection of B-sides.
The Gaslight Anthem will open up for reunited grunge icons Soundgarden on some of their European summer tour dates.
