The Gaslight Anthem will release their new album, 'Handwritten', on July 23.

The album was produced by Brendan O'Brien. The band recorded the follow-up to 2010's 'American Slang' in Nashville and have 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's brand new single, '45', received its world premiere earlier tonight (April 30) on BBC Radio 1 and was named DJ Zane Lowe's Hottest Record in the World. Listen to the song on SoundCloud.

Speaking about the new album earlier this year, frontman Brian Fallon described the songs from 'Handwritten' as "pretty personal and pretty aggressive".

The Gaslight Anthem will play a one-off UK headline show this summer. The New Jersey band will appear at London's KOKO venue on June 11 and will also play at Reading and Leeds Festivals. In addition, The Gaslight Anthem will open up for reunited grunge icons Soundgarden on some of their European summer tour dates.

The tracklisting for 'Handwritten' is as follows:

'45''
'Handwritten'
'Here Comes My Man'
'Mulholland Drive'
'Keepsake'
'Too Much Blood'

'Biloxi Parish'
