The Gaslight Anthem will reunite for 10th anniversary of The ’59 Sound

Will Lavin

Now this is exciting!

The Gaslight Anthem, led by frontman Brian Fallon, has announced a very special series of shows celebrating the 10th anniversary of the album that changed everything for them, The ’59 Sound.

The New Jersey-based foursome are one of Bruce Springsteen’s favourite bands, and they should be one of yours. If you’re not familiar with The Gaslight Anthem then be sure to pick up a copy to The ’59 Sound, you won’t be disappointed.

Hitting the road later on this year they will perform the album in its entirety in both North America and Europe. Dates begin May 27th at Washington DC’s legendary 9:30 Club and then continue into mid-August, stopping for four shows in the UK, including a night at London’s Eventim Apollo Hammersmith on July 20th. 

The Gaslight Anthem will also perform The ’59 Sound in full at this year’s Governors Ball Music Festival.

“Released by SideOneDummy Records on August 19th, 2008, The ’59 Sound officially saw The Gaslight Anthem break out as one of the most electrifying groups, marrying their punk roots with classic FM radio scale to craft a soulful and exhilarating vision of American rock ‘n’ roll.

Songs like “Old White Lincoln”, “Great Expectations” and the worldwide smash title track proved transcendent modern rock classics, fuelled by heroic hooks, huge choruses, and lead vocalist-guitarist-songwriter Brian Fallon’s masterful chronicles of love, loss, and the broken hearted, of summers gone and dreams still to be met.”

Tickets go on sale Friday February 2nd. For complete details and ticket information, please visit:
