Last night while doing some work I listened to the NPR stream of Gaslight Anthem’s new album, Handwritten, and HOLY CRAP DO I LOVE IT, YOU GUYS. I fully second Kurp’s assessment that it’s the best cathartic rock album of the year. Seriously, buy it. It’s fantastic.
I know, shocking, right?! Anyway, buy Handwritten and set your DVRs — they’ll be performing on Jimmy Fallon’s show this Friday night. In the meantime, enjoy the video embedded above for the album’s title track — and prepare to feel compelled to run through a wall of fire after you do.
