The Gaslight Anthem have announced that they have returned to “full time status” as a band, following almost seven years on hiatus. They also say they have begun writing their sixth album and have announced a sprawling European and North American tour for 2022.

The announcement came via the band’s social media channels on March 25. It was preceded by several days of mysterious teaser clips, which led to fan speculation about a tour to celebrate the 10th anniversary of their 2012 album, Handwritten.
