It's truly an honour, and on top of that for it to be in London, one of my favourite cities anywhere, it's a dream. Plus, it's two Jersey shore locals playing some rock and roll.”

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 “one of the best albums 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 just aired recently.
