The pre-order for The Gaslight Anthem’s much-anticipated third album, American Slang, will kick off today, Tuesday, April 27, on American-Slang.com. AMERICAN SLANG is slated for release on June 15 in the US and Canada (and around the world that same week) on SideOneDummy Records. Produced by Ted Hutt (who produced the band’s acclaimed second album, THE ’59 SOUND), American Slang heralds a dramatic leap forward for the New Jersey-based band. Tracks such as “Bring It On,” “Orphans” and “Stay Lucky” bristle and burn with the spirit of soul and the artistic adventurousness and confidence of a band that has come into its own and truly found its own voice.
Fans of The Gaslight Anthem will have the opportunity to purchase American Slang in multiple formats via American-Slang.com, which will also offer exclusive colored vinyl and other very limited edition merchandise. American Slang will be available as a featured pre-order on iTunes as well starting today, April 27. The iTunes pre-order features two additional bonus songs: a new track, “She Loves You,” and an acoustic version of “American Slang.”
