The Gaslight Anthem have released their first new song in nine years, the appropriately-energetic Positive Charge.
This is the New Jersey Springsteen-punks' first proper new music since 2014. In 2018, after announcing their hiatus three years previously, they reunited for a string of shows (including at London's OVO Arena Wembley), and released The ’59 Sound Sessions, a collection of unheard and rare stuff from the recording of their classic 2008 second album. Now they promise a sixth record and more touring is on the way.
Speaking of the new tune, frontman Brian Fallon says it "began as a message of joy to ourselves and to our audience.
"The central theme is about looking at the things you’ve come through and feeling like you want to go ahead with an open heart toward the future, believing that the best years are not behind any of us and the good we have is worth something.”
