The Gaslight Anthem will release a companion album to their 2008 record The '59 Sound next month.

Titled The ’59 Sound Sessions, the record will feature nine rare and previously unreleased tracks along with a 60-page booklet documenting the band’s second album.

The ’59 Sound Sessions will be released on CD, LP, Limited Edition Deluxe Photobook LP and on digital platforms on June 15 via SideOneDummy Records.

Drummer Benny Horowit says: “The journey a band goes through is complex. 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.”

The Gaslight Anthem will head out on the road later this month for a run of shows which will see them play The '59 Sound in full. They have dates lined up in North America, the UK and Europe.
