After a three-year hiatus, New Jersey punk-rock band THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM have announced their reunion and a 10th anniversary tour of their 2008 album, The ’59 Sound.
The band announced their reunion on their Twitter and promised more shows alongside their already released date at NYC’s Governors Ball.
Hello everyone! The ‘59 Sound is turning 10 this year so we’re gonna do some shows to celebrate.
Thank you all for your continued support, more shows to be announced soon!

Tour dates for the anniversary will be announced in due course.
THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM initially went on hiatus in 2015 after the release of 2014’s Get Hurt with the following statement: “Hello all! We wanted to let everyone know that we’ll all be taking a break from THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM after this next European tour in August. We’re all going to do other projects and stay active in some way or another, both in and out of music, but we’d like to step away from the band until we decide what we’d like to do next. We’d like to recharge and take a step back until we have something we feel excited about rather than going right back to making a record just for the sake of making the next record. We all feel this is the best decision we can make and it feels like the right one for us. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported our band for the last eight years and we’ll see you down the road! With love and respect, Brian, Benny, Alex and Alex.”
