Listen: The Gaslight Anthem’s Gritty New Song ‘Rollin’ And Tumblin’
By Annie Reuter
The Gaslight Anthem let loose on new single “Rollin’ And Tumblin,’” the first from their upcoming new album.
While frontman Brian Fallon has been teasing Get Hurt, their fifth record, as being very different, the new song seems to give a taste reminiscent of some of the band’s older material.
With harder vocals, gritty electric guitar and an ear-grabbing drum beat that evokes the band’s energetic live show, “Rollin’ And Tumblin’” harkens back to the desperation heard in their 2007 debut Sink or Swim and the spirit that brought their 2008 followup The ’59 Sound into the mainstream.
“And all of my friends want to get into heaven / And all I keep thinking is I wish you were here,” Fallon sings on the track.
