Get Hurt

  • The title track of Gaslight Anthem's fifth album, the record was inspired by vocalist and guitarist Brian Fallon's divorce from his wife of ten years, Hollie. "Sometimes, I don't even know how it happened. I don't even know how it got like this," he told Noisey of the split. "All I know is that it did. And I now have to figure out: What do I do now?"
  • John Van Hamersveld, the guy who created the sleeves for The Beatles' Magical Mystery Tour and The Rolling Stones' Exile on Main Street records, was enlisted to help out with the album's artwork. "He came out to see us, we sat down with him and he came up with that one day, just off the cuff, no direction at all, just came up with it," Fallon told NME of the bold upside down heart that graces the front of the album. "It was so simple and yet it said everything."
