Brian Fallon

Brian Fallon returns to North America this spring for his first full-band tour in two years. With his band The Howling Weather in tow, Fallon will play 18 shows in the U.S and Canada this March and April. Additional tour dates to be announced in the new year.

The tour is in support of Fallon’s new solo album LOCAL HONEY, out March 27th. LOCAL HONEY marks Fallon’s third solo album and first new LP in two years, following 2018’s critically acclaimed SLEEPWALKERS. Produced by GRAMMY® Award-winner Peter Katis (The National, Death Cab for Cutie, Interpol, Frightened Rabbit), the album sees the New Jersey-based singer-songwriter melding myriad strains of American music with contemporary consequence, ambitious energy, and seemingly infinite lyrical power. Songs like “21 Days,” “Horses,” and the crystalline “Hard Feelings” offer a deeply personal glimpse into Fallon’s everyday world, revealing universal truths through hard-earned insight and unflinching honesty.

“Every single song is about right now,” says Fallon. “There’s nothing on this record that has to do with the past or even the future, it has to do with the moments that are presented and things that I’ve learned and I’m finding in my day to day. This record is 100 percent about the day today. It’s not about these glorious dreams or miserable failures, it’s about life and how I see it.”

 

Brian Fallon first rose to commercial and critical acclaim as the singer/songwriter/guitarist of The Gaslight Anthem, in addition to other beloved acts including The Horrible Crowes and Molly & The Zombies.

Fallon released his first solo record, Painkillers, in 2016. The album received widespread critical applause, with Entertainment Weekly acclaiming Fallon as “a first-rate songwriter with a dozen tunes that wax philosophical about love and the human condition – the dude’s like a modern day Nietzsche with a sleeve tattoo.” “Painkillers suggests (Fallon) really was holding his best songs back,” noted MOJO while Kerrang! declared it “a straight-up fantastic return to Brian’s rock ‘n’ roll roots.” “(Fallon’s) version of the American Dream is tied not to anything abstract or political, but to songwriters like Bruce Springsteen, Tom Petty, and Roy Orbison,” wrote Consequence of Sound, “and in some ways Fallon’s version is even more effective than those of his forebears.” “It feels a little like a new morning,” raved Rolling Stone. “For a guy whose songs have always traded in the pains and pleasures of nostalgia, the Fallon of Painkillers seems to have arrived at a newfound, forward-looking clarity.”

Brian Fallon will release a new solo album in 2018 on Island Records.
