Since the release of their first album for SideOneDummy ‘The ‘59 Sound’, New Jersey’s The Gaslight Anthem have toured the world and performed at major festivals including Coachella, Rock Am Ring, Glastonbury, Pinkpop, Lollapalooza, Reading and Leeds, Hyde Park Calling, Fuji Rock, Hurricane, Gurten and Roskilde. Legendary performances at Glastonbury and Hyde Park saw them perform on the same stage (at the same time) with none other than Bruce ‘The Boss’ Springsteen himself.
THE ‘59 SOUND was named one of the best albums of the year in 2008 (and, in some cases, the decade) by NME, Kerrang!, Q Magazine, VISIONS, Rock Sound and Big Cheese, and the band won the “Best International Newcomer” award at the 2009 Kerrang! Awards as well. Both Rock Sound and Kerrang! have been tireless supporters, giving the band cover features early on in their career.
