Brian Fallon (born January 28, 1980) is an American musician, singer and songwriter. He is best known as the lead vocalist, rhythm guitarist, and main lyricist of the rock band the Gaslight Anthem, with whom he has recorded five studio albums. He is also a member of the duo the Horrible Crowes alongside the Gaslight Anthem's guitar technician and touring guitarist, Ian Perkins. Since 2016, Fallon has released four solo albums and one EP.


Fallon was born in Red Bank, New Jersey, in 1980. His mother Debbie was in a folk band in the late 1960s called 'The Group Folk Singers'. Fallon spent his teen years in Hackettstown, New Jersey, where he became close friends with Tom "Tommy Gunn" DuHamel of the band Communication Redlight.[2] Fallon attended Hackettstown High School.[3]

When Fallon was 17, he released a cassette under the stage name 'No Release'. He also once wanted to start a small record label to be called 'Old 45 Records'.[4]

Band affiliations and projects

No Release (1997)

At the age of 17, Fallon released a cassette titled The Coffeehouse Sessions under the name No Release. It was released under Mean Little Man Productions. There are only about 200 copies of the limited release demo. There are 16 tracks on the demo which featured Chris Eissing as lead guitar on a few tracks.

Amping Copper (2001)

With the band Amping Copper, which has been called "basically...Surrogate McKenzie version 2", Fallon was involved with the recording of the 6-track self-titled CD, Amping Copper, in 2001.

After Amping Copper, Fallon wanted to record a solo EP while maintaining the band feel. He asked a friend, Casey Lee Morgan, from the band Lanemeyer to play drums. Another friend, Mike Hemberger, played bass and produced the EP. One of Fallon's old guitar teachers, Tim Fogarty, played guitar on two tracks. Together they recorded The American Music EP in 2004, which featured Fallon's mother on backing vocals.[4]

This Charming Man (2004–2005)

In 2004, Fallon, along with Michael Volpe, Chris Clementi and Mike Leboeuf, founded This Charming Man. Fallon and Volpe remained the only original members when Benny Horowitz and Alex Levine joined in late 2005. In early 2006, Volpe decided to leave the band and Alex Rosamilia was brought on board, thus bringing together the future line-up of the Gaslight Anthem.

This Charming Man's only full release was Every Little Secret in 2005, with the original lineup. Another song by the original band called "She Coulda Raised the Titanic" later became "1930" on the Gaslight Anthem's album, Sink or Swim.

The Gaslight Anthem (2006–2015, 2018, 2022–present)

Fallon has been the prominent song writer and vocalist for the Gaslight Anthem since their transition from This Charming Man. With the band he has recorded five studio albums, Sink or Swim, The '59 Sound, American Slang, Handwritten and Get Hurt. In 2009, he joined Bruce Springsteen on stage for the headlining set at the Hard Rock Calling Festival, performing the song "No Surrender". On July 29, 2015, the band announced an indefinite hiatus after their European summer tour, which ended with an appearance at Reading Festival on August 30.[5]

Fallon said of the band, "People will always say, 'why are you doing a solo record?' And I'm like, 'because I don't have anything to say with Gaslight'. Those five records, that's what you got. That's the piece. I feel it's a lot like The Replacements. There's no new music because that's all Paul [Westerberg] and the band has to say. When the book is over, it's over. And I have like… four-and-a-half records I'm really proud of."[6]

The Gaslight Anthem reunited on March 25, 2022, with Fallon posting: "I am very pleased to announce to you all that The Gaslight Anthem is returning to full time status as a band. We’ll be announcing a lot of tour dates in the next couple of days. We’re also beginning to write new songs for what will be our sixth LP. We’re very much looking forward to the future and seeing you all again. We want to thank you for staying with us. Stay tuned!"[7][8]

The Horrible Crowes (2011–present)

On January 20, 2011, Fallon announced on his blog that he had formed the group the Horrible Crowes with his guitar tech, Ian Perkins.[9]

The first single, "Behold the Hurricane", was made available for streaming through on July 13, 2011.[10] On September 1, Rolling Stone streamed the album in its entirety. On September 20, the video for "Behold The Hurricane" was uploaded to the Horrible Crowes' website.[11]

Their debut album, Elsie, was released on September 6, 2011, in the US.

Molly and the Zombies (2013–present)

Molly and the Zombies is an Americana/folk group that was formed in 2013 by Fallon with guitarist and Plow United frontman Brian McGee, former Ryan Adams and the Cardinals bassist Catherine Popper, and Scissor Sisters drummer Randy Schrager.[12] The band performed their first show in December 2013 in Asbury Park, New Jersey, opening for the Bouncing Souls at the Stone Pony. According to Fallon, there is no record deal and there will be no album. He also said all of the band's music, which he wrote and didn't feel like using for the Gaslight Anthem, was inspired by Bob Dylan's Highway 61 Revisited album. The band's name comes partially from the Roky Erickson song "I Walked With a Zombie" and a 1943 horror movie.[13]

Molly and the Zombies performed at The Bell House in Brooklyn, New York, on June 5, 2014, with Jared Hart of the Scandals and Dave Hause as opening acts. They released 5 songs for free online: "Long Drives", "Lucky", "Red Lights", "Sketchy", and "Smoke".[14]

Solo career (2016–present)

Fallon released his first solo album, Painkillers, on March 11, 2016. He toured in support of the album with his backing band the Horrible Crowes. On April 16, 2016, Fallon released a three-song EP entitled Georgia. The EP was a Record Store Day 2016 exclusive limited to 2,000 pressings on 10" vinyl. Fallon's second album, Sleepwalkers, was released on February 9, 2018. He toured in support of this album during 2018.

Local Honey, Fallon's third album, was released on March 27, 2020. Fallon's fourth album, Night Divine, was released on November 5, 2021. The album consists of Fallon's recordings of classic Hymns and Christmas carols.[15]

Personal life

Brian Fallon is a Christian, but he avoids using references to his faith in his music. As he stated in an interview with referring to the Gaslight Anthem's 2010 album American Slang, "There are no religious songs and there never would be because the four of us, we all have different views, completely different religions...I'm very cautious not to push that on the band."[16]

Much of the lyrics on the Gaslight Anthem's 2014 album, Get Hurt were inspired by his divorce. Fallon said “Sometimes, I don’t even know how it happened. I don’t even know how it got like this. All I know is that it did. And I now have to figure out: What do I do now?"[17][18] Fallon has since remarried and welcomed his second child.[19]

Brian Fallon 2010 in Dublin

Brian Fallon (* 28. Januar 1980 in Red Bank, New Jersey) ist ein US-amerikanischer Sänger, Songwriter und Gitarrist. Bekannt wurde er als Frontmann der Rockband The Gaslight Anthem.


Markenzeichen seiner Projekte sind seine markante, raue Stimme und die Songthemen. Viele Lieder handeln von hoffnungsloser Romantik und der Sehnsucht nach unendlicher Freiheit sowie der Aufbruchsstimmung der 50er- und 60er Jahre in den USA.[1] Seine Musik ist überwiegend in den Bereichen Folk-Rock, Punk-Rock und Indie-Rock anzusiedeln, oft wird er mit Bruce Springsteen, John Mellencamp oder Tom Petty verglichen.[2] Sein Soloalbum Painkillers kommt ruhiger als seine anderen Werke daher und ist eher in den Bereichen Folk Rock und Heartland Rock einzuordnen.[3]


Frühere Projekte

Bereits mit 17 Jahren veröffentlichte Fallon unter dem Pseudonym No Release eine Musikkassette mit dem Titel The Coffeehouse Sessions, die auf 200 Stück limitiert war. Vier Jahre später nahm er mit der Band Amping Copper eine EP mit dem Bandnamen als Titel auf.[4] 2004 nahm er als Teil des Cincinnati Rail Tie die EP The American Music EP auf. Auf einem der sechs Titel wirkte auch seine Mutter Debbie, die in den 60ern Teil einer Folkband war, als Background-Sängerin mit. Im gleichen Jahr gründete er mit Michael Volpe, Chris Clementi und Michael LeBoeuf die Band This Charming Man. In dieser Besetzung veröffentlichten sie das Album Every Little Secret. Ein Jahr später verließen Clementi und LeBoeuf die Band und wurden durch Benny Horowitz und Alex Levine ersetzt.

The Gaslight Anthem

Hauptartikel: The Gaslight Anthem Nachdem auch Volpe die Band verließ, gründete Fallon mit den verbliebenen Bandmitgliedern und Alex Rosamilia The Gaslight Anthem. Hier gelang ihm der internationale Durchbruch. Bis zu der Auszeit im Jahr 2015 nahmen sie die Alben Sink or Swim, The '59 Sound, American Slang, Handwritten und Get Hurt auf.


Im Jahr 2011 gab er bekannt, zukünftig mit Ian Perkins, einem Techniker der Band, als Duo mit dem Namen The Horrible Crowes auf Tour gehen zu wollen. Zusammen veröffentlichten sie das Album Elsie. Im gleichen Jahr war er mit Dave Hause, Dan Adriano von Alkaline Trio und Chuck Ragan auf der Revival-Tour unterwegs. Hier spielten die Musiker mal alleine, mal zusammen ein Akustik-Set, bei dem sie sich gegenseitig coverten. 2013 spielte er einige Konzerte als Teil der Band Molly and the Zombies. Hier wirkten Brian McGee von Plow United, Bassistin Catherine Popper und Randy Schrager, Schlagzeuger der Scissor Sisters, mit. Obwohl die Band eigene Stücke spielte, die Fallon geschrieben hatte, kam es nie zu einem Plattenvertrag oder einem Album. Diese Stücke wurden laut Aussage Fallons vom Album Highway 61 Revisited von Bob Dylan inspiriert. Fünf dieser Lieder stellte die Band als Gratis-Download im Internet bereit.[5]


Im September 2015, unmittelbar nach der verkündeten Auszeit von The Gaslight Anthem, gab er bekannt, an einem Soloalbum zu arbeiten. Hierfür hatte er einen Vertrag mit Island Records unterschrieben. Produzent des Albums war Butch Walker, der unter anderem Alben von Frank Turner, Avril Lavigne oder Fall Out Boy produzierte. Die erste Single A Wonderful Life hatte ihre Radiopremiere im Dezember 2015. Das Album mit dem Titel Painkillers erschien am 11. März 2016. Ebenfalls Teil seiner Band sind seine früheren Weggefährten Ian Perkins, Catherine Popper, Alex Rosamilia.[6] Fallons zweites Soloalbum Sleepwalkers wurde am 9. Februar 2018 veröffentlicht. Am 27. März 2020 erschien sein drittes Soloalbum mit dem Titel Local Honey.

Im September 2021 kündigte er das Erscheinen eines Weihnachtsalbums unter dem Titel Night Divine an. Das Album, das am 5. November 2021 erscheinen soll, beinhaltet zahlreiche Coversongs, unter anderem Virgin Mary Had One Son.
