Things seem to be moving along pretty fast for The Gaslight Anthem. They began recording their new album Handwritten last January, then last month they finished it and then last week they began mixing. Tonight, the band posted a message on Twitter saying that they are about to begin mastering the record. The message read as follows:
“Almost ready to send the record to mastering and then into your hands!!!! #everywordhandwritten“
No official release date for Handwritten has been set, but the album is likely to be released this spring/summer. Not only is it The Gaslight Anthem’s follow-up to 2010’s American Slang, but it’s their first recording on the label Mercury Records.
The band will tour Europe and the UK this summer to support their new record. The dates can be found here.
