As you may have heard, Brian Fallon (You know, the frontman of The Gaslight Anthem, The Horrible Crowes, and Molly and the Zombies) has a solo LP, Painkillers, in the works. Fallon recently sat down with Kerrang and revealed a few details on the project, including who played on the album and what kinds of sounds to expect on the album:
“I’m not playing everything – we have a guy named Mark Stepro playing drums, I’m doing a lot of the guitars, Butch is doing a lot of the guitars, Cat Popper is coming in to play bass. And I think friends of ours are just going to pop in that are in the area! But the bulk of it is Mark playing the drums, and me and Butch doing everything else.”
“It’s tough to use words to describe music, but everything starts out with drums, bass and an acoustic guitar. […] I’m kind of tapping into my upbringing early on with American folk music and American rock’n’roll music from before the ‘70s – before rock became like, ‘ROCK AND ROLL!’ It’s song-based, really.”
