The Gaslight Anthem announce hiatus

Posted by mark on Wednesday, July 29, 2015 at 6:30 PM (EDT)
The Gaslight Anthem The Gaslight Anthem have announced a hiatus after their upcoming European tour. The band announced via their Facebook:

"We wanted to let everyone know that we'll all be taking a break from The Gaslight Anthem after this next European tour in August. We're all going to do other projects and stay active in some way or another, both in and out of music, but we'd like to step away from the band until we decide what we'd like to do next. We'd like to recharge and take a step back until we have something we feel excited about rather than going right back to making a record just for the sake of making the next record. We all feel this is the best decision we can make and it feels like the right one for us. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our band for the last eight years and we'll see you down the road!"

Guitarist Alex Rosamilla recently unveiled his new metal project. The Gaslight Anthem's last full-length release, Get Hurt , came out last year.
