Brian Fallon Teases New Solo Material
Brian Fallon has been teasing clips of his brand-new solo material, taken from upcoming debut album Painkillers.
After announcing details of his first-ever solo effort last week, The Gaslight Anthem frontman has taken to Instagram to unveil snippets of his new record. Check out the clips below, and let us know what you think in the comments! And keep your eyes peeled on an upcoming issue of Kerrang! for an exclusive interview with the singer-songwriter to get the lowdown on Painkillers.
Produced in Nashville by Butch Walker, Painkillers is set to arrive in early 2016 via Island Records in the United States, and Virgin/EMI over here. “I’m overjoyed to be making this solo record,” says Brian. “And I can’t wait to go out on the road with the new songs I have as well as to get to play the Elsie [The Horrible Crowes] album live again!”
Here’s a little sneak peak at some texture guitars my buddy @toddstopera laid down for me. But I wanted to say that this little Tone King Imperial is really becoming a mainstay on this record. It does everything from this kind of cool reverb stuff to full out Neil young tweed sounds. Thanks to my friends @humbuckermusic for suggesting it to me. It’s got a great attenuator in the back for any volume needs. Really cool stuff made by real people. I’ll post some clips of its nastier side later. Enjoy your day everybody!
