ACCLAIMED SINGER/SONGWRITER UNVEILS FIRST SINGLE FROM UPCOMING NEW ALBUM, SLEEPWALKERS, OUT NOW!
Brian Fallon has unveiled the first official single, ‘Forget Me Not’, from his much-anticipated new solo album, SLEEPWALKERS, due out this Friday February 9 via Virgin EMI. The ‘60s pop-inspired track was released today and is available now on all DSPs.
“I was thinking how every song doesn’t have to be so serious,” Fallon says. “It can just be fun. It can just be a song that I would want to play live. ‘Forget Me Not’ came out in just a couple of minutes and actually ended up being pretty serious – it seems my subconscious had other plans.”
Fallon – accompanied by his high-energy backing band, The Howling Weather – will celebrate the announcement of SLEEPWALKERS with their 2018 European headline tour, supported by special guest Dave Hause and scheduled for stops in the UK, Belgium, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, and Ireland through February and March. The full itinerary is below. For complete details and ticket information, please visit thebrianfallon.tumblr.com/live.
SLEEPWALKERS sees Brian Fallon once again pushing timeless rock ‘n’ roll into the modern era, recasting British Invasion rock, first generation UK punk, and American pop and soul into a near irresistible sound he’s dubbed – with a nod and a wink towards The Who – as “Heavy R&B.” Recorded earlier this year at New Orleans’ Parlor Recording Studio with producer Ted Hutt – the man behind the board for The Gaslight Anthem’s 2008 breakthrough, THE ’59 SOUND – the album is yet another sterling example of Fallon’s always adventurous artistry, this time fueled by the New Jersey-based tunesmith’s interest in the Vox Continental, the distinctive organ used by favorite artists spanning The Animals and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers to The Specials and Elvis Costello and the Attractions. As emotionally powerful as it is musically exultant, SLEEPWALKERS is Brian Fallon at the very top of his game, now as ever pushing and kicking the rock ‘n’ soul sounds he grew up on into the future.
Known far and wide as singer/guitarist of The Gaslight Anthem, as well as such outfits as The Horrible Crowes and Molly & The Zombies, Fallon made his solo debut with 2015’s masterful PAINKILLERS. The album – which includes the hit singles, “A Wonderful Life” and “Painkillers” – drew widespread critical applause upon its release.
