Gaslight Anthem frontman completes work on new album with his roadie

Brian Fallon wraps up 'radical' debut side-project release 'Elsie'

The Gaslight Anthem vocalist Brian Fallon has finished work on the debut album from his side-project The Horrible Crowes.

The record will be entitled ‘Elsie’ and is due for release through Side One Dummy Records in the UK on September 5. Speaking to Spin Magazine, Fallon revealed that the album is: “not what you expect from me at all.”

‘Elsie’ was recorded in New Jersey as a collaboration between Fallon and The Gaslight Anthem roadie Ian Perkins.

“Radical is a good word to describe the record. It’s definitely out there,” says vocalist/guitarist Fallon. “Someone’s either going to get pregnant or want to steal a car listening to this record.” Fallon goes on to reveal track titles for ‘Elsie’ include ‘Go Tell Everybody’ and ‘Mary Ann’. “That song would give a kid nightmares for months,” says the singer of the latter track. “It’s all about the end of the world.”

Fallon will play as part of the Revival Tour in September with Dan Andriano, Chuck Ragan and Dave Hause, across the UK and Europe.
