New Jersey’s favourite sons, The Gaslight Anthem return to our shores in early 2009 for a full UK tour. After exploding onto the scene with their critically acclaimed sophomore album ‘THE ’59 SOUND’ (SideOneDummy), the band will bring their high-octane live show to Norwich Waterfront on 2nd March 2009 (support comes from Frank Turner and Polar Bear Club).
Hailing from New Brunswick, New Jersey, the band’s anthemic tales of life, loss, family, heartbreak and youth have captured the imagination and hearts of fans and media everywhere. ‘THE ’59 SOUND’ is being hailed as one of the albums of the year, with Kerrang! putting the band on the cover before ever having written a word about them, NME calling THE ’59 SOUND the “best album of 2008” and other immensely positive press coming from the likes of Q Magazine, Rock Sound, Big Cheese, Classic Rock, Clash and The Sun as well as from influential American magazines Rolling Stone, SPIN and Alternative Press. Numerous spins on Radio One, XFM and 6Music have contributed to this band’s meteoric and well-deserved success, and special BBC Radio One (with Zane Lowe) and XFM in-studio sessions are set to be broadcast in the next month or so as well.
