The Gaslight Anthem release first new song in 9 years
The Gaslight Anthem have shared their first new song in nine years with "Positive Change."
The uplifting and raucous track, produced by Peter Katis (The National, Interpol, Kurt Vile), is the first single from their own Rich Mahogany Recordings label (via Thirty Tigers) and features winding guitar riffs and gritty, raw vocals from bandleader Brian Fallon.

"'Positive Charge' began as a message of joy to ourselves and to our audience," Fallon said in a statement. “The central theme is about looking at the things you’ve come through and feeling like you want to go ahead with an open heart toward the future, believing that the best years are not behind any of us and the good we have is worth something."
The Gaslight Anthem are set to head out on a spring headline tour beginning May 1 in Houston, TX. They'll also be hitting the Midwest and West Coast for shows this September and October, kicking off the run at the festival Bourbon & Beyond in Louisville, KY.
