Restaurants, Rest Stops and Red Bulls With Brian Fallon

Brian Fallon of The Gaslight Anthem talks with Paste Magazine about food on the road.

I would always eat the hash browns for breakfast and I would eat the chicken strips and fries. I wouldn’t really go for the burger, it was too messy and tour is a game of tricking the bathroom. You have to be very careful what you eat at night. Because when you’re home, if you wake up in the night and you’re like I have one bathroom, no problem. And when you wake up, barreling down the highway or in an airport, there’s not always a bathroom or there’s a bathroom you don’t want to use

Brian Fallon Delays US Tour

Brian Fallon

Brian Fallon has announced he’s cancelled the first two weeks of his upcoming tour.

Out of an abundance of caution I’ve decided that I’m going to cancel the first two weeks of my US tour. It will now begin on January 25th in Chicago at Park West. My hope is that by delaying the start of the tour cases will come down, especially in the Northeast. They may not, but this is a decision I feel puts me, my audience, and the touring party in the best place possible for the tour to actually happen.

Review: The Horrible Crowes – Elsie

Brian Fallon didn’t NEED to make Elsie. By the time this album arrived – the one and only record Fallon made with the side project he dubbed The Horrible Crowes – Fallon was already well on his way to rock star status…or, at least, it seemed that way at the time. His full-time band, The Gaslight Anthem, had released three albums and an EP in the space of three years and about two weeks – a remarkable run that saw the band gaining ground with each release. By the time Elsie arrived in September 2011, there was already buzz brewing about Gaslight Anthem LP4, and about how that album had the potential to launch Fallon and company into a whole new stratosphere. Just about anyone else would have taken a well-deserved break. Based on the exhaustion that would eventually crash The Gaslight Anthem, maybe Fallon should have. Instead, he teamed up with his guitar tech, Ian Perkins, and made one of the great left-turn albums in 21st century rock ‘n’ roll. Some days, I think it might just be his masterpiece.
