Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem interviews with Rant and Rave with John Nagle. In the interview, Fallon talks about the bands upcoming record, the rumors of the band signing with a major label and what it was like to play with Springsteen. Here is what Fallon had to say about the band’s new record:
We’re taking six months off and making a new record. The new record will be a harder, less ‘50s influenced version of The ’59 Sound. We’re writing in the same style, but it’s more bluesy and faster. The ’59 Sound is pretty fast, but it’s quiet. We’ve turned it all up. The slapback echo on the vocals is gone. It’s a meaner record. We’re not a meaner band, but we’re worldly. We’ve taken a lot of kicks since the last record.
It’s a pretty cool interview and you can read the whole thing here.
