Hailing from New Brunswick, the band’s anthemic tales of American life have captured the imagination and hearts of fans and media alike. The ’59 Sound was hailed as one of the best albums of 2008 and Kerrang! magazine put The Gaslight Anthem on the cover before they had ever written a word about them.
