Brian Fallon To Make Solo Record

Posted by: Keagan Ilvonen (01/25/13)
Brian Fallon has been working on a new solo album as well as new Gaslight Anthem tracks. He expects to make his solo record this year while The Gaslight Anthem takes a break from touring.
From BrianIím working on a lot of things, itís been a while, I apologize. Iíve had some really amazing things happen and some really terrible things in the last couple months. Iím definitely on a new page, and I have to start there. So, Iím going to make a record by myself, hopefully sometime this year. Iíve just started to work on these songs now, as well as new Gaslight Anthem songs for our next record.

Iíve learned thereís too much to be done and not a lot of time to do it in. Things can change overnight. So Iím going to do my best to get as much music out there as I can while Iím young enough and fortunate enough to have people listening.

Thereís no termoil or anything with Gaslight, weíre going to be writing too, but Iím sure weíre gonna need a breather after this year of touring before we go in to make our next record. So since I canít sit still, Iím gonna make another record. Itís what happens when you donít do drugs, you end up with a lot of down time. So I fill that time with songs now.

Hereís to looking forward to what comes out.

See you guys soon.
I donít love picturesÖ

Brian

Great news! I wonder if he'll use the Horrible Crowes name, or just his own? Sounds like he's had some very bad news recently, not as positive sounding as his updates normally are

Definitely interested to hear this. I was hoping Gaslight would put another record out this year (just because I am so anxious for the "different" record that he mentioned) but that is expecting way too much and they definitely earned the right to take a breather. They put a great record out last summer and toured a bit on it. Who knows, maybe a high quality version of The Blues, Mary will be recorded.

Highly doubt that as that was both him and Ian (guitar tech at the time). Alex, the guitarist also did keys on that album. This sounds like it will just be him for the most part. Who knows, he might reach out and I am sure they would do it.

If Fallon tours small clubs playing solo that would be amazing.

Good reasoning there, my thinking was that I thought I remembered HC starting out as a solo record - but I could well be wrong! Ian is the luckiest guy in music going from Brian's guitar tech, to HC to touring member of Gaslight. I'd love that job!

Love Gaslight, and Brian's style of songwriting. Sorry that he's going through some stuff. I'm definitely looking forward to hearing this.

Haha no doubt. All of those moves are easy "where do I sign" scenarios. You are probably right, HC most likely started out solo because Brian wanted to make slow record that he did not feel was Gaslight material. Somewhere in the early stages he decided to ask Ian to help out. While Brian is certainly at the forefront of that project, I view it as a two-man group with the help of a few others; including Alex Rosamillia.

Hopefully it's like what Chuck Ragan does solo. I would love to see an acoustic singer songwriter kind of album from Brian.
