In the three years since the Gaslight Anthem last performed at Lollapalooza, the Springsteen-loving New Jersey punks have elevated themselves from a rising side-stage act to bona fide rock stars. Their latest album, Handwritten, ups the bombast to new heights, thanks in large part to frontman Brian Fallon's growing sense of self-reliance. "For the first time, I'm not scared that people aren't going to like this record," he says of Handwritten. “If you want to hang with us, you've got to grow with us."
