Like the Gaslight Anthem? Then Check Out These Five Artists

Gaslight Anthem
Danny Clinch
We're all about introducing you to great new artists here at Diffuser.fm. With our new weekend feature, we'll take an indie artist you might be familiar with and recommend five other artists that you may also like. Some may have influenced the band you know, some may have a direct connection to them and some may just sound like them. This week: the Gaslight Anthem.


Fake Problems

 
 

Florida quartet Fake Problems share a label with the Gaslight Anthem. They also opened for the Anthem on their 'American Slang' tour. Most of all, they grab from the same diverse set of influences: punk, rock, pop, old-school country and folk.

 

The Flatliners

 
 

This Canadian band actually has been around since 2002, four years before the Gaslight Anthem formed. But their three-chord guitar rock and catchy choruses have a lot in common with the Gaslight Anthem, especially the intensity of their live performances.

 

The Horrible Crowes

 
 

The Gaslight Anthem's frontman Brian Fallon fronts this side project with Gaslight's guitar technician Ian Perkins. The songs on their 2011 debut album 'Elsie' sound a lot like the Gaslight Anthem -- just a bit darker.

 

The Menzingers

 
 

These Pennsylvania punks play straight-up rock 'n' roll that's as indebted to the past as it is unpretentious in its approach. Like the Gaslight Anthem, they can be overly earnest at times, but we don't doubt they mean every word they sing.

 

Frank Turner

 
 

This British singer-songwriter sounds like one of the toughest folk singers on the scene today. He's as equally influenced by Bob Dylan as he is the Clash. And like the Gaslight Anthem's Fallon, he sounds committed to every word that leaves his mouth.
