Mark your calendar for July as Brian Fallon & Co head to the UK.
New Jersey punks, The Gaslight Anthem have announced a very special series of shows celebrating the 10th anniversary of their milestone second studio album The ’59 Sound. They’ll be stopping in the UK for three shows in July including a night at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on 20 July.
Released by SideOneDummy Records on 19 August 2008, The ’59 Sound was the record that saw the band 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, fueled 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.
The Gaslight Anthem’s fifth and final studio album, Get Hurt, made top 5 chart debuts in both the US and the UK upon its August 2014 release via Island Records which was followed by the band’s last live appearance at the UK’s Reading Festival in August 2015 before their hiatus.
