The Gaslight Anthem Bio:

The Gaslight Anthem's music embraces many elements of the Jersey Shore sound. The band has described their sound as "Bruce Springsteen singing for a Cure cover band, with a tinge more aggression." The group's fondness for Springsteen, a significant influence on their music, is a fact celebrated by fans and critics alike. Representative of such views, one critic wrote, "The Gaslight Anthem are like something out of speculative fiction: this is what pop music would be if Springsteen hadn't listened to his producer, let The Ramones record 'Hungry Heart,' and launched the C.B.G.B.'ers into megastardom.".

    I believe they are signed to Mercury records, after having been with Side One Dummy.
