The Gaslight Anthem Share Teaser For New EP

(DawBell) The Gaslight Anthem has announced HISTORY BOOKS - SHORT STORIES, a new EP arriving Friday, March 22 on their own Rich Mahogany Recordings label via Thirty Tigers.

HISTORY BOOKS - SHORT STORIES collects four exclusive tracks including a brand new rendition of the longtime fan favorite, "Blue Jeans & White T-Shirts," and stripped-down acoustic performances of "Positive Charge" and "History Books," the original versions of which can be found on The Gaslight Anthem's acclaimed 2023 return to action, HISTORY BOOKS. The EP is heralded by today's premiere of the band's anthemic take on Billie Eilish's 3x RIAA Platinum-certified breakthrough single, "Ocean Eyes".

"I was driving my daughter to school and she played it for me on the way and I really took to the song," says The Gaslight Anthem's Brian Fallon. "Then one day we were talking ideas for a cover with our friends and I said, wouldn't it be cool to do a heavier version of 'Ocean Eyes'? I tried it out and everybody loved the idea." Listen to a teaser clip below.

The Gaslight Anthem will celebrate HISTORY BOOKS - SHORT STORIES and much more with an eagerly awaited North American summer headline tour. The "HISTORY BOOKS TOUR" gets underway July 26 at Denver, CO's Mission Ballroom and then continues through a September 1 finale at Detroit, MI's The Fillmore Detroit. Support throughout comes from Joyce Manor with The Dirty Nil (July 26-August 11) and Pinkshift (August 13-September 1) joining on select dates.

In the meantime, The Gaslight Anthem is currently traveling on an epic EU/UK tour, including sold-out headline shows and a wide range of top-billed festival appearances into July, including a headline slot at 2000 Trees. In addition, the band will return to their home state of New Jersey to join Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Trey Anastasio Band, Norah Jones, and more at Asbury Park's sold-out Sea.Hear.Now Festival on Sunday, September 15.
