Maybe I missed something but... Have they confirmed yet what the first "official" radio single is going to be? I only ask because I heard "Get Hurt" on SiriusXM's AltNation today.

That would be a much better pick than "Rollin' & Tumblin'" which is a great song, but wouldn't have the "mass appeal" or potential at radio that "Get Hurt" does (in my opinion, anyway).

It's Rollin and Tumblin, video already being shot. They'll probably send one to Top 40 and the other to rock radio.

That makes sense. Though, Top 40? So soon? I would have guessed they'd see how that one does ("Get Hurt") at rock radio and gone from there...

The fact that "Top 40" is even a thought as far as this band goes, though? Makes me happy.

I recently photographed Barrence Whitfield & The Savages, Gaslight Anthem, and Mighty Mighty Bosstones in Boston, MA. It was for Dicky Barrett's 50th birthday. Amazing show and more photos here: http://favoritesightsandsounds.wordp...ston-ma-62114/

Just got the e-mail telling me that "Get Hurt" is available for download from the pre-order. WHEE! Also available on Spotify.

Listening to Handwritten right now, and I'm utterly bewildered that most people seem not to like it. Honestly it's the only Gaslight Anthem record I fully enjoy.

I like Handwritten so much more when I cut out Too Much Blood and Desire (and add Blue Dahlia)

Yeah, I don't like Too Much Blood very much. But that's the only track on the album that's somewhat weak.

I personally prefer the EP version:

45
Keepsake
Howl
Original Biloxi (one with the "Won't say nothing cause that's how I know your heart" verse instead of the "all of my heroes" bit)
Mae
Blue Dahlia

I like Desire a lot, actually. Title track is one of my favorites too.

not a fan of that EP version. the title track, "Here Comes My Man," and "National Anthem" are some of my favorites by this band. "Too Much Blood" is a good song. "Biloxi Parish" has always been my least favorite tbh.

National Anthem and Here Comes My Man (also Handwritten and Muholland Drive) aren't bad songs, I just like everything off their first three albums and most of AS more. They lack the imagery and magic that makes the average Gaslight song so special.

Really don't like Too Much Blood or Desire Both of them bore me.

Enough about Handwritten though. New album is going to be great!
