The Gaslight Anthem's frontman Brian Fallon has said that the thinks the press will 'hate' his band's new album.

'Get Hurt', the group's fifth album, is released on August 11. Speaking to Noisey, Fallon said that he doesn't think the record will be well received critically. "I would put money on it - that of every five reviews, one out of five likes it. And two out of five vehemently hate it," he said.

The piece reveals that 'Get Hurt' was inspired by Fallon's divorce from his wife of 10 years. "Sometimes, I don't even know how it happened. I don't even know how it got like this," says Fallon of the break-up. "All I know is that it did. And I now have to figure out: What do I do now?" Drummer Benny Horowitz adds that writing the album was 'cathartic' for Fallon. "Brian doesn't really talk about that stuff too much," he said. "But from my perspective, I do think there was something cathartic about making this record. I think for him, there was something extra at stake. Maybe writing it was necessary to feel better."

The Gaslight Anthem will tour the UK in the autumn. The band will play 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.

The Gaslight Anthem will play:

Manchester Apollo (November 17 & 18)
London Alexandra Palace (19)
Edinburgh Corn Exchange (21)
Cardiff Motorpoint Arena (22)
Birmingham Academy (23)
