The Gaslight Anthem is going all out in celebration of the 10th anniversary their seminal album, The ’59 Sound. The gents will release The ’59 Sound sessions, a companion to their classic album with nine rare unreleased songs and a 60-page booklet on June 15 via via SideOneDummy Records on June 15.

Along the way, the Gaslight Anthem are performing shows in celebration of the album as well, including two sold-out nights at 9:30 Club. Paivi was there to shoot the first of the two on Sunday, May 27.

In their show, the Gaslight Anthem performed The ’59 Sound in its entirety alongside a handful of other favorites. The band played the 12 songs of the album in tracklist order, beginning with “Great Expectations” and ending with “The Backseat.” Of course the second song was that unmistakable title track.

“The journey a band goes through is complex,” said the Gaslight Anthem‘s Benny Horowitz in The ’59 Sesssions‘ accompanying photobook. “We were perpetually on the road and in a state of constant motion. I can’t think of a better time to try and create the most significant thing of your life when it was the most significant time of all our lives. I’m so happy to share this moment of our existence.”
