GASLIGHT ANTHEM TALKS NEXT ALBUM, HOW THEY WANT TO BE LIKE PEARL JAM
The Gaslight Anthem may have taken inspiration from Pearl Jam for this year’s Handwritten, but as the band prepares to make another album next year, they choose an unlikely source of inspiration from the Pearl Jam discography.
“I want to do the No Code record, that one,” singer Brian Fallon told Rolling Stone. ”They did these three rock records, and [then] they all of a sudden went left turn. And everybody went, ‘What the hell?’ Then later, five years, they went, ‘This is amazing.’”
“Pearl Jam, Neil Young, those are my big two as far as, ‘I don’t care at all what people think, this is what I’m doing,’” he said. “It’s not that they don’t care about their audience – they’re searching for something inside.”
