Tom Doyle is a good boy (when he’s not provoking bands into threatening to headbutt him or writing letters about pop music, that is). He recycles. He cleans the dishes after he’s finished eating. And he took his mum out to go see The Gaslight Anthem when they came and played the fancy Troxy here in London.

Six things we learnt when Tom Doyle’s Mum when to see The Gaslight Anthem play in London:

It’s nice having a genuine fist-pumping, bridge and tunnel New Jersey boy in our ranks. That Dan Pelic is one of our writers means that we can review things like The Bamboozle Festival with ease. Foo Fighters, Bon Jovi and… Skrillex headline the three-day event and it’s on A BEACH. Cool.

WARNING: Dan’s in a bad mood.

Festival Republic have tonight officially confirmed the first batch of 41 names playing their flagship festivals – Reading & Leeds Festivals. Although their arguably the UK’s biggest festivals taking place in 2012 (since Glastonbury is taking a year off), admittedly most of these names will be of little or no interest to the majority of our readers here at Thrash Hits, but there are a few heavier highlights in among the indie-fodder.

Future Hits 070: Something About Death Or Dying

Something About Death Or Dying promo photo Thrash Hits

Something About Death Or Dying
From: New Jersey, USA
Lazy equation: (Norma Jean x Doomriders) – The Gaslight Anthem
Website: Myspace, Facebook

Thrash Hits verdict: We live for fresh music and this is it right here. We love, love, loved Chambers’ debut album earlier in 2010 and The Gaslight Anthem speak for themselves so a combination of the two was never going to be bad but we really weren’t preparaed for just how good SADOD were going to be. Groovy, tumultuous riffs that rise and fall with speedball energy, rounded off with vocals that carry an unbridled ferocity. Alex Rosamilia’s guitarwork is unrecognisable from his other band and Dan Pelic’s voice is one of the truest portrayals of anger you’re ever going to hear. It’s inspirational stuff.

Hard Rock Calling: Bruce Springsteen (and friends) confirmed

February 10th, 2009

As we predicted earlier this week, Bruce “The Boss” Springsteen, has been confirmed as the Day 2 headliner for Hard Rock Calling, the retro-flavoured rock festival that takes over London’s Hyde Park to June 27-28. Backing him up will be bore-rock favourites, Dave Matthews Band, and Springsteen’s biggest fans, The Gaslight Anthem (whom we just interviewed – keep your eyes peeled for the results next week). That’s them up there in the picture.

Of course this got us wondering whether our other prediction from earlier in the week – that AC/DC would be headling the first night – is going to turn out to be bang on the money too. Hard Rock Calling falls the day after the Aussie rock gods’ Wembley Stadium date, and still gives them time to rock up to Glasgow for their Scottish arena date on June 30. Hmmm….

Like an eccentric Mighty Boosh character, there are some who believe that punk and rock ‘n’ roll cannot be joined in holy matrimony, that the two genres cannot cohabit.

Hailing from New Jersey, leather jacket and flat-cap clad four-piece The Gaslight Anthem combine both with skill with undeniable conviction.
