This record will probably be more of a culmination of what the guys have learned from previous Gaslight records and side projects. I'm not surprised by the use of pianos and such. The guys have used other instruments before in their music than guitars, bass and drums. I'm just excited to hear new music.

I hope they post a video/documentary showing the recording process like they did with American Slang and Handwritten.

Like breakthrough to the mainstream? I have personally forget those thoughts in a way. I just hope its a good record. I mean it would be fun, but I think they in some way miss their chances with American Slang (the 'important 3rd record' and follower to the record that got them out of the basement) and Handwritten(major-label debut). The hype is gone. Or is it? I just hope they forget those kinda pressures(if they have/had one. I would guess the pressures were pretty big before Handwritten) allready and just focus on the music. I think Mercury push the record pretty hard, but it just didnt make that big of a chance. Which is weird. Do their music sound outdated to most "average folks"? Bad songs? The timing is wrong? Not enough media-appearences(I think they make pretty much every talk show in America and the radios played pretty good if Im correct)? Just bad luck? Who knows.
And they allready have in a way really big and passionate following. Especially as live band. Im under the impression they sell-out at least around the UK and Central Europe like same clubs/arenas that bands that have much better record sales, million of Facebook likers, Grammys etc. Some interview Brian said that they sold-out same place in Copenhagen that Mumford and Sons did couple months before? They are pretty big right? And I was interested in The Lumineers success. In their last years UK tour they played even smaller places than TGA I think. Shepard Bush Empire and stuff like that. Or maybe it was just some "small-club-tour-to-the-hardcorefans". Dont know.

But with all this rambling theres always bands like REM who made 6 greatgreat records through the 80,s, toured like madmens the whole decade, played the "game"(at least better than say Replacements  Razz ), but still they really breakthrough with their 7th album (Out Of Time). And didnt even tour with that record. Or with the next one (Automatic For The People) which was even bigger.
And then theres Bruce (sorry). Even he hadnt breaktrough (or at least that big-big that he is now) before his 7th album (Born In The Usa). Maybe in rock circuits and of course he sold bigger clubs and maybe arenas, but what I've gathered that for example Born To Run and Darkness days he was maybe just as big as TGA is now (Brian said that in some interview and thats the expression from reading stuff here and there. Who knows. 7th album  Cool 

Breakthrough. I dont know, but of course they could get some more recognition...at least for selfish reasons in Finland!  pirat  Then they could come and play in a club goddamned! Basketball  Last club gig was in 2010 and after that I'd had to pay too much money with overprized festival where I dont really care for the other acts...

wow, big write-up you did there.
I agree on most of these things but let me just have another few words on the breakthrough thing:

I also think there had been a lot of pressure before Handwritten (for some reason they always talked about the pressure before American Slang but I think Handwritten was'nt that easy of a record, too)
It was like nearly everyone who knew this band was expecting Handwritten to be their mainstream breakthrough and I think also the band themselves were more or less ready for "going real big". (Brian talking about playing arenas and stuff/ Top-rated album reviews before release) Well who wouldn't have expected this with

- TGA signing Mercury
- TGA growing more and more till being right under the surface of the mainstream
- TGA being worshipped as "The Saviors of Rock'n'Roll" by nearly every press release
- Handwritten being produced by Brandon O'Brien
- Handwritten being promoted to death by Mercury

...But well to make things short it wasn't what Everyone was hoping for, the Band had a rough time, and things kinda cooled down.

I have the feeling the pressure is gone now because TGA failed (well not really, but ya know: with breaking through and stuff) and now its like rehearsing without having to proof any point.

I hope for the next record to be a "Grower". On the contrary Handwritten was promoted for going big right away and entered the charts pretty high - but after most people had heard the record the spark did not light a fire, Handwritten couldn't cement its place in the public and the long time promoted hype was gone really fast.

If they and Mercury for gods sake keep the expectations low this time and the next record may have one or two singles which go mainstream - than i hope the record makes its way to the top because its good - and not because its promoted well.

Haha, well yeah thats one of my problems. Id like to make my points much shorter. But you know sometimes when my mind gets going theres no stop to it at all. And then I have to read the whole stupid thing again, clear the mistakes, maybe do some sentences over, erase the stupid stuff (that maybe isn't even that stupid) and with my concentration I get bored pretty fast and delete the whole goddamn thing. But maybe I've learned a thing or two and luckily I didnt have go to work today  Cool

Very good points from you also. At the end of the day if it is an album full of good music, it should sell, or find people no matter how its promoted. I guess.

I'm gonna start by saying, I want the band to  be as successful as they hope to be. If being the biggest band in the world would truly make them happy, then I want that for them. And honestly, while sometimes you can predict this stuff, who the heck knows when (or if) they'll have that one big  record that catapults them into the limelight.

But selfishly, I hope they stay about where they are popularity-wise, but continue to grow as musicians and still go down in history with the recognition they deserve. The reason being: I don't want to pay 50-100 bucks a ticket to sit in crappy seats in an arena to see them. Or have a pit lottery system. Or have my fingers crossed that I'll bump into them in Jersey to say hey, because organized meet-n-greets are a joke, and they'd be too big for an informal one. Or have to listen to one of their singles be so overplayed that I come to hate it like I do nearly every other radio single I once enjoyed.

And last but not least, I don't wanna have to sift through all those "fans" there to hear the radio single to find the die hards.  I enjoy seeing the same handful of faces when I got to Boston, or Jersey, or NYC, or wherever and meeting other new faces because everyone is outgoing (despite many of us being introverts in real life) because in the beginning most of us were like "I don't know anyone else who likes this band so I'm here alone, wanna be friends?" <<this also happen more when there's just fewer people.

Anyway, that's my selfish rant in response to all this talk of them making it big. Right now I just can't wait for the first single from the new record to come out!

i wouldn't worry too much. however, I saw them at the same venue I saw Against Me at last night, and the venue was much more full for Gaslight. So, at least in my area, Gaslight is much more popular than Against Me.

The fact that they are listening to masters is very good news no? Means the album is closer that we think?

Having been a Gaslight fan for awhile now I have always felt that if they were going to breakthrough it would have happened with Sink or Swim and The 59 Sound albums. I'm not saying it couldn't happen with their 5th album, but I think time has passed and the one problem is not the band its the radio stations they play the same old music its not stuff of today's rock its old music from the 80's like Billy Joel, or Judas Priest, rock music to me is almost non existent today especially on the radio. I remember hearing 45 on the radio in June 2012 before handwritten came out and I was happy to see they were played but other than that time. I haven't heard them on the radio again which is sad because they are such a great band and have awesome tunes. I hope though that Gaslight can prove everybody wrong on their upcoming disc and silence the pop and hip hop music that's constantly being played on the radio and take back rock and roll. They are a great band that should be recognized and famous. At the end of the day I just want a good rock and roll album from them and they have never let me down before. I hope their are some songs similar to Mullholand Drive, Keepsake, and Too Much Blood those songs are deep moving and raw.

Realistically, it's going to be October, maybe september if the label don't hold it up too much. We'll probably get a release date and title end of June/July though.

You thought their first record would have been a breakthrough album? The '59 Sound was a break through to the music scene, but I think they're talking about a breakthrough into a more mainstream band. That would have never happened with The '59 Sound because they weren't even recognized in the music scene that much before then.

I do think it would have happened by now though. When American Slang came out it was being played on ESPN, and I've heard 45 on the radio a bunch. So don't think they have or haven't "broken through," more so that they're still breaking through. And some bands have great careers and never really do it at all. The Hold Steady isn't a household name but they carry a lot of clout in the scene. Springsteen hit big on his 7th. Modest Mouse was around 10 years before they got it (albeit they haven't released many albums). Then, every once in a while you get somebody like The Killers and they put out a song and it skyrockets. *shrugs*

I still think that Sink or Swim and The 59 Sound should have broken them through into the mainstream. Those albums are incredible its sad that they weren't really noticed until The 59 Sound came out. The Hold Steady is an awesome band, Boys and Girls in America by them is a great album. The Ramones were a great band that never broke through into the mainstream and never had a hit single in their entire 22 year career that's a shame.
