The Gaslight Anthem start work on ‘aggressive and personal’ new album

Singer Brian Fallon recently released debut LP with side-project The Horrible Crowes

The Gaslight Anthem have started work on their fourth studio album, with singer Brian Fallon revealing the material is sounding “pretty aggressive”.

The singer, who recently released his debut album with side-project The Horrible Crowes, revealed that his main band have already recorded ten demos for the follow-up to 2010’s ‘American Slang’.

He told he was “really happy” with the progress of the sessions, commenting:

We’re making demos and our goal is 25 of them, and we’ve got ten. The songs that are fast, they’re a lot faster. It’s definitely pretty personal and pretty aggressive right now.

He added that The Horrible Crowes‘ debut LP ‘Elsie’, which he recorded with The Gaslight Anthem guitar tech Ian Perkins, allowed him to “experiment” with a wider range of instruments, including organs and strings.

He explained:

I needed to write these songs so that I could carry on as a person on my own and function. We wanted to find out what else is there – what else are we capable of.

Fallon added that the duo are already planning to work on a second album, with Gorillaz and Moby cited as inspirations.

You can listen to a stream of ‘Elsie’ which was released on September 6, below.
