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.

THE ’59 SOUND earned The Gaslight Anthem rapturous reviews around the world. “THE ’59 SOUND is an answer to a prayer,” enthused Pitchfork. “When the guitars turn into chorus-firepower, it just kills because it’s been so long since we’ve heard anyone pull that off with such panache.” “Wearing their influences as badges of honour,” wrote Q, “the New Jersey quartet blast out affecting, soulful punk rock strewn with bittersweet memories of small-town blue-collar America.” Perhaps PopMatters said it best: “Oh hell, the whole damn thing is great!”

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. The band made its last live appearance at the UK’s Reading Festival on August 30th, 2015.

The Gaslight Anthem is: Brian Fallon (lead vocals, rhythm guitar), Alex Rosamilia (lead guitar, backing vocals), Alex Levine (bass guitar, backing vocals), and Benny Horowitz (drums, percussion, backing vocals).
