PostSubject: 'American Slang' single to premier 23 March !!   Tue Mar 23, 2010 5:35 am

It appears that the 'American Slang' single will premier today at 11.30 am or 12 noon EST.

At least, that's what I conclude from the following tweets, etc.:


alancross tweets:

Heard the new Gaslight Anthem single, "American Slang" (title track of CD due June 15). Very good. Hear it on ExploreMusic radio Tuesday.


gaslight_anthem tweet:

Big news, noon, Tuesday. NYC time... get ready...



Would this be streamed online, ie. at http://exploremusic.com ?


Also, a new Gaslight Anthem MySpace blog:

AMERICAN SLANG news coming Tues Mar 23....
..Hey everyone, just a head's up: we're going to be posting some pretty cool news (and other things you might be interested in) concerning our upcoming album AMERICAN SLANG at around noon NYC time today (Tuesday March 23rd).

Be sure to check here then and please be sure to go visit our official Facebook page too (
http://www.facebook.com/pages/THE-GASLIGHT-ANTHEM/384408923304) which we just launched today and which will have even MORE details...you'll see:)

Pass the word along too....thank you!

TGA


And this is the info from the new Facebook page:

So we're doing this Facebook thing finally, after sitting on the sidelines for a good long while. In the spirit of getting things up and running, we're going to be posting some news (and other stuff...) tomorrow at 11:30 am EST, right here. Check back then!



EDIT: actually it just got posted on Facebook and MySpace as streaming audio.

I hope so...I'm not waiting for a upload!

alancross didn't sound too enthusiastic about the song but that could just be due to twitters character limit.

I shall be sat here, listening with anticipation come 5pm.

I just edited my original post by adding the new MySpace blog post which I overlooked earlier and the info from the new Facebook page.

Sounds good, although just as I was about to declare my love for the guys on their facebook it logged me out...typical, they'll never know.

We're happy to announce the tracks that will be on our upcoming album AMERICAN SLANG, which is coming out in June...here they are, in order:

American Slang
Stay Lucky
Bring It On
The Diamond Church Street Choir
The Queen of Lower Chelsea
Orphans
Boxer
Old Haunts
The Spirit of Jazz
We Did It When We Were Young

The last song isn't going to help the killers comparisons. But other than that, looks pretty awesome =)

edit: I think everyone may have crashed the MyBand tab. It won't load Razz

Half way through the title track, sounds epic already.

Wow this is awesome. Very Happy

I must admit...I expected a little more enthusiasm around this place. Very Happy

The song is brilliant.

Look what you started
I seem to be coming out of my skin
And look what you’ve forgotten here
The bandages just don’t (?)

And when it was over
I woke up alone
And when it was over
I woke up alone

And they cut me to ribbons and taught me to (?) (Drown?)
I got your named tattooed inside of my arm
And I called for my father but my father had died
Oh, while you told me fortunes in American Slang

And look at the damage
The fortunes came for the richer men
Whilst we’re left with gallows
Just waiting for us liers to come down and hang

And when it was over
I woke up alone
And when it was over
I woke up alone

And they cut me to ribbons and taught me to (?) (drown?)
I got your named tattooed inside of my arm
And I called for my father but my father had died
Oh, while you told me fortunes in American Slang

And here’s where we died that time last year
And where the angels and devils meet
And you came dance with the queen if you need
And she’ll always keep her cards close to her heart
Oh, so close to her heart
(?) (and boy It'll?) tear you apart

And they cut me to ribbons and taught me to (?) (Drown?)
I got your named tattooed inside of my arm
And I called for my but my father had died
We called for our fathers but our fathers had died
And you told us fortunes in American Slang
And you told me fortunes in American Slang

Best I could get.

Giving it my first listen now. It's fuckin' amazing. I really love the sound of it and it sounds so much mature and solid than their older stuff for me. You can really feel how much more is in this of themselves.

I heard drum to begin with then thought it might be drive. The end of the word doesn't sound like 'ive' though.

Could well be.

"Oh, so close to her heart
(?)......tear you apart"

I think this part is:

"Oh, so close to her heart,
And boy, it'll tear you apart"
