He Told Us Fortunes in American Slang
Brian Fallon hails from a working-class town along the Jersey Shore, where he grew up listening to the records of Bruce Springsteen and the Clash. Their music inspired him to learn to play the guitar and write songs of his own. He formed The Gaslight Anthem in 2005, a band that combined the folk-rock storytelling of Bruce Springsteen with the raw punk instrumentation of the Bouncing Souls. The New Jersey rockers were thrust into the spot in 2008 thanks to the successful release of its sophomore album, The '59 Sound. The successful release helped the band gain a cult following. Fans were drawn to the band's use of rich imagery and story-telling in its lyrics. Songs such as titular "The '59 Sound" and "Old White Lincoln" quickly became favorites among fans of the band. The band would follow up The '59 Sound with successful albums American Slang, Handwritten and Get Hurt before taking a hiatus in 2015. The Gaslight Anthem has played numerous music festivals around the world, including Bonnaroo and the Reading Festival, and has even played with its idol Bruce Springsteen twice in 2009. The group joined him onstage at the Hard Rock Calling Festival and the Glastonbury Festival. The Gaslight Anthem has also toured with punk rock legends Social Distortion while Brian Fallon has played shows with fellow singer-songwriter Chuck Ragan. Since the hiatus, Brian Fallon's solo career has been well received by fans of The Gaslight Anthem and new fans. His debut solo album, Painkillers, has spawned the alternative-folk favorites "Wonderful Life" and "Steve McQueen." His second album, Sleepwalkers, has spawned the fan favorites "Forget Me Not" and the titular "Sleepwalkers."
