Gaslight Anthem at the Mandela

HAVING breached the UK mainstream with their sophomore LP 'The '59 Sound', New Jersey four-piece The Gaslight Anthem make their long awaited Belfast debut at Mandela Hall on Monday, November 22.

From sold out word tours to onstage appearances with Bruce Springsteen, the band have primed their huge UK audience for their eagerly anticipated third album 'American Slang', which is available now.

The band's stunning debut, The '59 Sound, with its melding of classic rock, soul and punk power, proved an immediate critical and popular sensation, with The New York Times praising the "rich, lustrous songwriting" and "taut punk arrangements", noting that Fallon's "casually observed storytelling, overflowing with detail, seethes with a cool desperation reminiscent of Mr. Springsteen in the late '70s",

With American Slang, The Gaslight Anthem reveal a remarkably powerful rock 'n' roll outfit honed by two years of nearly non-stop touring.

The Gaslight Anthem play the Mandela Hall, Belfast, on Monday, November 22.

Tickets, priced 23.50, are available from Ticketmaster Outlets, QUB Students' Union, The Kitten Bar (The Stiff Kitten), www.thestiffkitten.com and www.ticketmaster.ie
