The Gaslight Anthem Play Brand New Songs in Walmart’s ‘Soundcheck’ Concert Series
Joining the likes of the Fray, Foo Fighters and Chris Cornell, New Jersey alt-rock superstars the Gaslight Anthem have showcased their talents in the latest edition of Wal-Mart’s ‘Soundcheck’ concert series. Get a sneak peek at ‘Soundcheck’ in the video above with frontman Brian Fallon and bassist Alex Levine and then watch the full performance here.
Kicking things off with the tune ‘Rollin’ and Tumblin” from their latest studio album, ‘Get Hurt,’ Fallon and his bandmates waste no time setting the stage for an energetic and enthusiastic performance. It doesn’t hurt that they’re jamming in the legendary Electric Lady Studios in New York City’s Greenwich Village. This studio was originally built and used by Jimi Hendrix and has been the recording home for many artists like Bob Dylan, the Clash and more. Throughout their set, the Gaslight Anthem seem to channel all of the greats that once stood where they are.
Following the new with old, the band kicks into a spirited rendition of their 2008 hit, ‘The ’59 Sound’ and 2012’s ’45.’ The final three songs all come from ‘Get Hurt,’ including the title track, ‘1000 Years’ and ‘Underneath.’
And because six songs just isn’t enough, in addition to the concert footage, fans can watch an intimate interview with Fallon and Levine as they open up about writing and recording the new album. “Maybe it’s better we try something completely different and see what comes up,” the frontman says as he explains the new sound they created on ‘Get Hurt.’
Watch all the performances — including the behind-the-scenes interview with Fallon and Levine — right here. And check out the two Gaslight members discussing their new album’s opening track, ‘Stay Vicious,’ in the video below.
