Brian Fallon answered some detailed questions about his upcoming solo album, among other things.
It is a lot more work to record and write your own record and do everything, thank God I had Butch, who plays a ton of instruments I canít play. When I went into this I wanted it to have energy at times but not sound like Gaslight, which is tough because itís my songs in both.

Brian Fallon hopes to have a new single out before the end of the year.
I want to let you know Iím about to go into the mastering phase of the album this week and then I should have a single out before the end of the year.

Brian Fallon spoke with Kerrang about his upcoming solo album.
ďItís tough to use words to describe music, but everything starts out with drums, bass and an acoustic guitar. Thatís what everything starts out as, as weíre playing it. But then on top of that, we are putting electric instruments and guitars into it, but itís not a lot of guitars, so itís not a big rock record Ė but itís not quite a folk record either. I would say itís a singer-songwriter record, but itís not acoustic by any means. Thereís definitely electric instruments in there, but there are a lot of acoustic instruments. Itís still lively Ė thereís still a band going on, and thereís a lot of layering. It doesnít sound...

Brian Fallon is very nearly completed recording his new solo album.
I think this was easily one of the most enjoyable experiences Iíve had both writing and recording a record. Everything feels right to me and Iím happy to finally see it coming into itís own thing.

Week one of Brian Fallon's recording with Butch Walker is in the books. Brian posted a blog update about the progress.
Weíve been starting every song out with acoustic guitar, vocal, bass, and drums live and then we pretty much build from there. Itís a great way to do it because as each thing goes on top you start to hear more and more of a finished song. Weíre choosing each layer carefully and only putting on what we feel adds to the song, not just layering for the sake of slapping 32 guitars of the same part.

So far thereís been pianos, mandolin, a LOT of 12 string guitars (yes!), a banjo, and one song with pedal steel!!!! What?!? RULES! Iím from NJ, so I never heard pedal steel on...

Brian Fallon talked with Canoe about The Gaslight Anthem's new album.
Well, the record is what I did during difficulties. But I wouldnít say the record is directly about the difficulties ó not as much as people think. Iím not writing a news column. Itís not like, hereís the details and hereís the street name. Itís not the Kardashians, itís a band. I want to write songs people can relate to right away. But I try to write in a broader sense. So it may seem very specific, but itís not necessarily about the things you think. Itís a funny way of trying to articulate yourself in a song, and sometimes itís very difficult.

You can also follow the website on Twitter to get updates when new stories are posted. A sample entry from Brian Fallon is included below.
When I was asked to do this tribute, I was somewhere in Denmark. I picked Capo right away. I recorded this song very, very simply, just one guitar and my voice and my harmonica. I did it one night in the winter, it was freezing and quiet and late, like it always is when this kind of song is written or recorded.

To me Capo says, "I'm trying... I'm doing my best, but it's hard...

I'm going to go away from the press and interviews now until we finish writing our next record and find out what we will be in the next chapter of our artistic careers. I have nothing left to say until we find what that next chapter of our band is.
To our fansÖ please bear with us through this awkward period of finding our new legs. Iím being honest with you here because I am grateful for your loyalty to my band.

Brian Fallon's working on new music.
Iíd also like to say thisÖ What Iím working on Iíd classify as Americana. Itís not from New Jersey, itís not The Gaslight Anthem, in fact, itís not even mine, but itís oursÖ Iím looking to the people who used folk and country music as a tradition and took what was past and moved forward. Wilco, Ryan Adams, Steve Earle, Guy Clark, the Highwaymen, Bob Dylan, etcÖ Iím not writing about straw hats and gin joints. Iím not writing about nostalgia or a time I wasnít born it. Iím writing about the last two years of my life since we wrote handwritten. This project is going to be based on things I learned early on musically, which were my motherís folk songs....

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.
