The Gaslight Anthem are standing by their home state with a new video.
In the wake of Superstorm Sandy, which devastated New Jersey’s famous boardwalk and beyond, the band has released a video for the acoustic track “National Anthem” with images of the storm’s destruction. The storm’s destruction and impact on millions in New England is still being felt, a fact photos of demolished homes and the flooded Seaside Heights roller coaster brings home.
“Stay strong, Jersey,” the band writes in a message below the video. On the site PunkCares.org, the group is selling merch to benefit the organizations Rebuild Recover and Architecture for Humanity, alongside the contributions of other acts.
“National Anthem” appears on the Gaslight Anthem’s “Handwritten,” the group’s major label debut and fourth album overall. The Brendan O’Brien-produced set was released in July.
