Brian Fallon’s New Album, Sleepwalkers, is Out Today
09 February 2018 (Toronto, ON) – Today, Brian Fallon releases his latest solo record, Sleepwalkers, via Island Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The album sees 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, pushing and kicking the rock ‘n’ soul sounds he grew up on into the future. Listen to the album HERE.
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 with Entertainment Weekly acclaiming Fallon as “a first-rate songwriter with a dozen tunes that wax philosophical about love and the human condition – the dude’s like a modern-day Nietzsche with a sleeve tattoo.”
