After four years away from the road, The Gaslight Anthem is back.

The New Jersey band will launch a headline tour on September 13 in Portland, Oregon. Right now, shows are scheduled through a October 5 concert in Washington, D.C., with more dates to be announced. Ticket details and dates are available at TheGaslightAnthem.com

The tour news comes nearly seven years after Gaslight went on an indefinite hiatus in 2015, a year after the release of their most recent album, 2014’s Get Hurt. The group briefly reunited in 2018 for a run of shows celebrating the 10th anniversary of their beloved 2008 album,The ’59 Sound.

As previously reported, frontman Brian Fallon announced Friday that The Gaslight Anthem would be “returning to full time status as a band” and are “beginning to write new songs for what will be our sixth LP.”  He added, “We’re very much looking forward to the future and seeing you all again. We want to thank you for staying with us.”

Fallon, whose fourth solo album, Night Divine, came out in November, also said that unfortunately, the band would not do a tour to mark the 10th anniversary of their 2012 album Handwritten.
