Brian Fallon is writing a new Americana album that is not for The Gaslight Anthem. Check out what he had to say after the jump and buy concert tickets for upcoming The Gaslight Anthem tour dates here!
Writing some more songs… Taking some lessons… Getting ready. More to come soon!
I’d also like to say this… What I’m working on I’d classify as Americana. It’s not from New Jersey, it’s not The Gaslight Anthem, in fact, it’s not even mine, but it’s ours… I’m 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, etc… I’m not writing about straw hats and gin joints. I’m not writing about nostalgia or a time I wasn’t born it. I’m 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 mother’s folk songs. We also listened to a lot of early country. I’d like to write my years down. Here’s to a new tide in haunted waters. I hope you’ll enjoy it. Brian
