The Gaslight Anthem have shared their new song, "Little Fires," available now at all DSPs. The song is taken from their eagerly awaited new album, History Books, out October 27 on their own Rich Mahogany Recordings label via Thirty Tigers. It was produced by GRAMMY® Award-winner Peter Katis (The National, Kurt Vile) at his Tarquin Studios in Bridgeport, CT. More than any of the band's new songs to date, "Little Fires" reflects The Gaslight Anthem's origins in punk rock. Furthering that connection, the track includes guest vocals from one of the genre's current central figures: PUP frontman Stefan Babcock.
“‘Little Fires’ is like the opposite end of the spectrum from the frustration you feel in ‘History Books,’” says Brian Fallon. “It’s an empowerment song, about refusing to play along with the kind of people who always seem to be throwing a grenade into the room for no particular reason.”
