[stream] The Gaslight Anthem - "American Slang"

The Gaslight Anthem have released the tracklist and cover art for their upcoming album, American Slang. The follow up to the breakthrough 2008 effort, The ‘59 Sound, is due June 15 and you can now stream the title track at both their myspace and facebook. With their power chord driven anthems, gruff vocals, and everyman-appeal, the Jersey band gets frequent comparisons to Springsteen and/or The Hold Steady, even if they sound like a more commercially viable Lucero. Nothing wrong with that if done well, and 2008’s “The ’59 Sound” was an undeniable gem. “American Slang” doesn’t quite reach the same heights, but fans of that kind of slick bar-band punk/soul should dig:
