Gaslight Anthem's Brian Fallon announces side-project

Fallon says he's making a record with The Horrible Crowes

Gaslight Anthem's Brian Fallon announces side-project
The Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon has launched a new side-project named The Horrible Crowes.

Fallon has set up a blog, Cassettesinthemailbox.blogspot.com, for the new outfit, which features musician Ian Perkins as well as himself.

"What we're doing is writing songs and making demos at the very moment," he explained. "We hope to put out a full-length record sometime this year, before it gets cold again."

Fallon wrote that "Gaslight isn't planning on recording until the fall, for a 2012 release”. He added: "Every time I write a creepy Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Mark Lanegan-type song, I get an idea for a ripper which goes straight to Gaslight," he explained.

He also suggested that The Horrible Crowes may tour, writing: "We might do a few shows with the Crowes, maybe select cities in the US, Canada, and Europe/UK, but not major touring like Gaslight does."
