The Gaslight Anthem’s iTunes Session is out TODAY at iTunes.
Originally scheduled for a December release, this special set by the band was bumped up by iTunes and SideOneDummy after it was leaked by an overzealous member of press. *shakes fist* A lot of The Gaslight Anthem fans have come to look forward to the covers the band has performed over their career. Without over thinking it too much, the band seems take the mystique of a great song and add their own flavor to it resulting in a cover that only The Gaslight Anthem can pump new life into. Recorded back in July at the Magic Shop in New York, the band laid down some tracks by The Who, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Pearl Jam, a classic rendition of “House of the Rising Sun” as well as a new track and two revised originals.

Scott Heisel, of Alternative Press, jumped on the phone with Benny Horowitz, drummer of The Gaslight Anthem, the other day to talk about the iTunes Session (OUT NEXT TUESDAY!), tambourines, and the future!
If you’ve ever seen THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM live, you know to expect the unexpected. The New Jersey quartet frequently incorporate cover songs into their set, and they play around with arrangements of fan favorites to keep the crowd on their toes. This past July, the band documented some of these left-field ideas in the studio, culminating in the six-track iTunes Session digital EP, out Oct. 18 via SideOneDummy (pre-order here). It’s the band’s final release for the label, too, as they recently inked a deal with Mercury Records. We caught up with Gaslight drummer BENNY HOROWITZ to get the scoop on his band’s new EP, their future plans and just how difficult it actually is to play a tambourine correctly. While you’re reading, take a listen to an exclusive stream of a song from iTunes Session, “Our Father’s Sons.”
