Laura Jane Grace // Brian Fallon

Two of the greatest.

The Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon is first artist to enter Red Bull High Performance.
Brian Fallon has a busy few months ahead of him. The New Jersey native’s band, The Gaslight Anthem, released its fifth studio album, ‘Get Hurt,’ last month. They played ‘Late Night With David Letterman’ the week the album dropped. The album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Alternative Albums chart and No. 4 on the Billboard 200.
Now it’s time to hit the road.
On September 10, at Washington D.C.’s 9:30 Club, The Gaslight Anthem begin a North American tour (with Against Me! and Jimmy Eat World) that will keep them on the run until mid-October. Then the band heads to Europe (with Deer Tick and Bayside), for shows stretching from Germany to England, through the end of November.
Fallon knows very well what tour life is like: the 34-year-old has been making music and playing in bands for nearly 20 years now. But to prepare for The Gaslight Anthem’s upcoming tour -— supporting what looks like it will be the biggest album of the band’s career so far —Fallon tried a new approach.

The Gaslight Anthem Still Loves Tom Petty Songs… 

"Petty definitely was (a role model) because he really changed things up at a certain point in his career," band drummer Benny Horowitz said in a phone interview late last month. "And we even thought about U2 going from a record like ‘War’ to ‘Achtung Baby’ and how that happened, things like that, bands that have made shifts in their careers like that. And I do think when you have bands who have had these really long careers, usually those are the bands that have evolved and changed and moved around sound-wise."

Brian Fallon Guest DJing on Sirius

 
Brian Fallon On The Dangers of Drugs And Doctors
Before heading on the road, Fallon spoke to HuffPost Canada Music about the new album, Springsteen’s advice, being religious and the dangers of drugs and doctors when dealing with a personal crisis.
Against Me! headlined your first major tour. What do you remember from those days and nights together?
"I just remember being like, ‘Wow. They’re on a bus’ and they have a following that comes to see them every night, like a thousand kids or more every night. A different life. They really, really did it. Playing rock shows every night, having fun and obviously making a living out of it. I remember thinking that is the ticket right there, that is the goal. So I was paying attention to what they were doing and especially a lot of the things that they’d say along the way. They gave a lot of great advice."
Any conversations that you shared stand out to you?
I think that every time that I go out with someone there’s moments. Bruce, for instance, he probably bestowed upon us the largest knowledge gulp that you could take in a short period of time. It was a common thread among everybody that was and is bigger than us, they all try to say to take it as it goes and enjoy the moments as they pass because they pass so quickly.
Are you starting to feel a responsibility to be passing on that wisdom yourself now?

Gaslight Anthem’s Frontman Brian Fallon  says struggle of divorce shaped recent record
Fallon tells Canoe: “It’s what happened during that period, and a lot of the stuff in there is about that. A lot of it is my frustration and my struggle. But I’ll tell you one thing: it’s not Bob Dylan’s Blood On The Tracks, that’s for sure – but I’m developing my opinions as I go.”
