Painkillers (Brian Fallon album). Fallon began writing songs for what would become Painkillers before The Gaslight Anthem's 2014 release, Get Hurt, thinking there would be more time off before Get Hurt. He wrote new material and had some from another band of his, Molly and the Zombies, to use for Painkillers already. When the Get Hurt project started, Fallon put the new songs aside to focus on The Gaslight Anthem, realizing that the new songs he initially thought could be The Gaslight Anthem songs would not fit well with the direction the band was going with for Get Hurt.
The solo debut from the moonshine-voiced Gaslight Anthem frontman, Painkillers sees Brian Fallon holding true to his Jersey punk roots, while establishing himself as a top-tier songwriter in the increasingly crowded pantheon of indie-Americana scenemakers. Always a deft lyricist, with Painkillers, Fallon has proved that he can hold his own with open-road, roots rock bards like Eric Bachmann (Crooked Fingers), Josh Ritter, and Jason Isbell.

Complete your Brian Fallon collection. If there’s one characteristic that Fallon carries around with him and refuses to let go of, it’s his penchant for spending too much time looking in his rearview mirror, over his shoulder, and his downright desire to be anyone other than who he actually is. As to the rearview mirror aspect, if one listens to the man’s lyrics on both the.

Produced by Butch Walker. I feel you move through this crowded room And I catch myself like a spell fallen under you I've been here before Watching the wheels go round. Everybody that I've ever known They just ache all night and they wake up alone Yeah, we wait in the dark For something to put us to sleep. And, oh, my dear, you never know how 'Til the things you've done come and run you down. And we want love like it was a drug Yeah all we wanted was a little relief And every heart I held in between They were painkillers to me They were painkillers to me Come get your painkillers from me.

So, Brian Fallon’s new solo record Painkillers is confusing. Because let’s just get it out of the way: Painkillers sounds like the last few The Gaslight Anthem records. And that’s where the confusion sets in. Fallon and The Gaslight Anthem took a break from one another on the terms that the band was straying away from its punk roots and going in more of a Springsteen-esque sound that was bumming them out. They felt like they needed to step away from the band for a while and rediscover who they were, and try to harness the fire that dropped classics like The 59’ Sound, and American Slang
Fallon's story is far from finished. This guy is one of the best songwriters of his generation, in any genre, and if his future albums-solo or not-are as full of pleasures as Painkillers, we have nothing to worry about.
