New Jersey rock & roll heroes the Gaslight Anthem will reunite for their first headlining tour in four years this fall.
The trek is set to kick off Sept. 13 at the Roseland Theatre in Portland and wrap Oct. 5 at the Anthem in Washington, D.C. Tigers Jaw will provide support for the bulk of the tour, although Jeff Rosenstock will take over for the final four shows.
Tickets for the tour will go on sale this Friday, April 1, at 10 a.m. local time. A fan pre-sale will begin Tuesday at 10 a.m. local via the Gaslight Anthem’s website (fans can use the password “tga2022” for access to early tickets).
The tour announcement comes just days after Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon teased the band’s return on social media, writing, “I am very pleased to announce to you all that the Gaslight Anthem is returning to full-time status as a band.” On top of the tour, Fallon said the group is “beginning to write new songs for what will be our sixth LP. We’re looking forward to the future and seeing you all again.”
We’ll be announcing a lot of tour dates in the next couple of days. We’re also beginning to write new songs for what will be our sixth LP. We’re looking forward to the future and seeing you all again. We want to thank you for staying with us. – Brian, Ben, Alex, and Alex

The Gaslight Anthem last got together for some live shows in 2018 when they celebrated the 10th anniversary of their acclaimed second LP, The ’59 Sound. Prior to that, the Gaslight Anthem had announced an indefinite hiatus after they finished touring in support of their 2014 album, Get Hurt.
In the years since Get Hurt, Fallon has stayed busy with music, releasing an EP and four solo albums. His most recent effort, Night Divine, arrived last November and found Fallon recreating the traditional Christian hymns of his youth. Other members of the Gaslight Anthem have also launched other projects, like Alex Rosamilia and Alex Levine teaming up with members of the Ratchets and Let Me Run to form the new band, Forgivers.
