They have gone for that kind of Rolling Stones rhythm on this one, i don't know why it was called a blues song because it isn't really. It has the vibe of a blues song with the guitar licks etc but other than that its pure normal Gaslight , not a bad thing in my book.

Yeah, like I said earlier in the thread, I think people calling it "blues" was sort of a misnomer; I'd call it "bluesy", perhaps, but it's certainly not Robert Johnson or anything.

The latest video to surface is from Soundwave on 27 February, whereas the earlier one was from the Metro on 28 February. Did the song actually premier at Bribane on 26 February? Anyone know?

i think they played it for the first time at Soundwave in Sydney on February 27, as Benny says on his blog Wink

"We got a little sleep and headed right back to Soundwave for a 2.00pm show. Sydney was even better, we played a little tighter, had a great crowd again, and even played a new song, 'Biloxi Parish'."

This. Song. Is. Incredible. MOAR!!!

Nah, not yet. I'll let myself pine over this new one for awhile... It's great to hear the direction they're headed. American Slang felt like the tip of the iceberg in regards to finding their own sound, and this song sound like they completely own it.

I'm so proud boys! You kick ass!

I see what you're saying, but I found it interesting that this is apparently the "oddball" song. That could mean a lot of things, but it can almost be guaranteed that this won't be their sound or direction for the next album.

what a song this is , it just shows how much people want to hear new stuff as this video has over 9000 views compared to a couple of hundred for older stuff from the same gig.

hmm...thinking now about this supposed to be "oddball" song...i can only hope for more like this one! this song, to me, is the perfect mix of older Gaslight and newer, their own sound. i completely love this song.

'Biloxi Parish' was played again at Soundwave in Melbourne; by now people should have been able to sing along with it

I reckon the whole album will be in this direction somewhat. I mean, to me at least, Film Noir isn't that different form the rest of 59 Sound.
I hope this is the case anyway, can't get enough of the song Smile

Definitely feeling the Rolling Stones vibe! I love how Brian often feels the need to justify whenever Gaslight have a 'not-quite-so' punk song - They're the most Punk Band around by not always conforming to the punk rules. We wouldn't mind if they did do an all blues record or a punk one it'll still be ace!

I look at Film Noir as the oddball song in the same way that, say, The Diamond Church Street Choir is the oddball song. They both fit on their respective albums, but I remember reacting in a pleasantly surprised way at both of those songs the first time I heard The '59 Sound/American Slang.

Really enjoyed this new song and would love to see them continue down this path. Brian talked about American Slang being a lot like London Calling in how it was a band honing on its sound with slower, more confident songs (or something like that). American Slang always felt like a band in transition trying to get to that point but still not quite there yet- THIS is what I imagined a very confident, 'fully-formed sound' Gaslight Anthem sounding like (and before anybody jumps on me, I am NOT saying that AS was a bad album!). Oddly, enough I disliked American Slang a lot at first because it was the farthest departure yet from the raw punk sound of Sink or Swim, and this song might be the farthest departure yet from the original sound, but I love it. Maybe I've come to accept the days of SoS are gone, but I found it interesting that I immediately was drawn to this song.

Just picking nits, but a couple of the lines are a little awkward to me, "And I'll be with you through the dark, so that you'll not go through the dark alone" and the "eventually" lyrics in the first verse for example, but I love the chorus and the verse after the instrumental breakdown.

Maybe I'm reaching a little bit, but its almost sounds to me like Gaslight's take on the themes present in The Hold Steady's "Hurricane J."

Hurricane J:

Jessie, I'm not jokin' around
I see the crowd you're hangin with
and those kids don't see positive

I don't want this to stop
I want you to know
I don't want you to settle
I want you to go
Forget all the boys that you met at the harbor
You're too hard already, you'll only get harder

Biloxi Parish:

Who else can say that about you, baby?
Who else can say that about you now?
Who else can take all your blood and your curses?
Nobody, I've seen you hanging around, seen you hanging around

Both narrators obviously love and care about the person they're talking to, and want to stick with them despite hanging around with the wrong crowd and tough times - the hard partying of Jessie in Hurricane J and the person "going through the dark alone" in Biloxi Parish. Just a thought.

First post!

I saw them perform this in Melbourne last week and then saw them again at the Soundwave festival. By then I learnt the lyrics and I was probably the only one singing along. haha

PS I'm happy I found a Gaslight forum because they are now my favorite band.
