The Gaslight Anthem unveil Hurricane Sandy relief support video – watch

The clip for 'National Anthem' features images of the East Coast following October's destructive superstorm

The Gaslight Anthem have paid tribute to their homestate of New Jersey in the video for their track 'National Anthem'.

The video - which you can watch above - shows images of the devastation which befell the East Coast of the United States, including New York, because of Hurricane Sandy last month.

The video is accompanied by a message from the band, which reads: "Stay strong, Jersey. Love, The Gaslight Anthem."

The band are currently helping to raise money for two Hurricane Sandy relief funds by selling posters and t-shirts. The band writes that "100% of the proceeds will be split equally between Rebuild Recover and Architecture For Humanity's 'Rebuild Seaside Pier' effort."

The Gaslight Anthem recently announced a UK tour for March 2013. They will play nine dates on the stretch, kicking off on March 21 at the O2 Academy Bristol, before heading up to Leeds, Glasgow and Manchester and finishing up at London's Troxy.

The band will put out their own version of Bon Iver's track 'Skinny Love' on special 10-inch red vinyl later this week.

The limited edition three-track all-acoustic single will comprise the songs 'Hold You Up' and 'Misery', as well as 'Skinny Love', and will be put out on November 24 as a special Black Friday release.
