Bad news for fans of The Gaslight Anthem.
During an interview at Hurricane festival, Brian Fallon said that the band would be taking a break before working on the followup to 2014’s ‘Get Hurt’ “A year or two, I think. We take our time until we have an idea for a new album and everyone is convinced that it is really good.” Unfortunately that time away looks to have turned into a fully-fledged hiatus.
Writing on their Facebook page, the band say,
We wanted to let everyone know that we’ll all be taking a break from The Gaslight Anthem after this next European tour in August. We’re all going to do other projects and stay active in some way or another, both in and out of music, but we’d like to step away from the band until we decide what we’d like to do next.
We’d like to recharge and take a step back until we have something we feel excited about rather than going right back to making a record just for the sake of making the next record. We all feel this is the best decision we can make and it feels like the right one for us.
Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our band for the last eight years and we’ll see you down the road!
With love and respect,
Brian, Benny, Alex and Alex.”
