Get Hurt

by The Gaslight Anthem

Released on Universal Music New Zealand Limited

On what is now the fifth album from the New Jersey rockers, they have promised to try something different from their traditional Springsteen-like stadium rock sound of the past. Things certainly kick off with a bang on 'Stay Vicious' with a very heavy riff layered throughout the song unlike anything they have released previously.

Their sound also delves into deeper realms with the haunting title track 'Get Hurt' showing a different ad more vulnerable side to the band. However they are at their best when making straight up solid rock songs like the engrossing 'Rollin' & Tumbling' and closer 'Dark Places'.

With a winter tour seeing them play in the biggest venues they've ever headlined in the UK, it seems that this is going to be their moment.
