Crappy news from The Gaslight Anthem camp today. They’ve announced that they’re going on an ‘indefinite hiatus’.
That really sucks, they’ve been my favourite rock band since I discovered them about 5 years ago (I know, I was late to the game). Might as well crank these tunes to tribute them.
I requested ‘National Anthem’ when I interviewed Brian at our ‘Uninvited Guest’.

Here’s hoping that ‘indefinite’ doesn’t mean too long. We need you guys in the rock world.
