Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon reveals solo track ‘Smoke’ – listen

'I was beaten to death with regret', Fallon sings on the latest from 'Painkillers'

The Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon has unveiled another track from his forthcoming solo album ‘Painkillers’, due on March 11.

‘Smoke’ has been released as an audio-only offering on YouTube, and follows the release of’A Wonderful Life‘ in December (with a video following earlier this week, see link). ‘A Wonderful Life’ is Fallon’s first single following The Gaslight Anthem’s hiatus.

Fallon announced the new album in December, and has also revealed tour dates (below) to accompany his new solo venture.


The album was produced by Butch Walker (Taylor Swift, Frank Turner, Keith Urban), and recorded in 2015 at Nashville’s Taxidermy Studios, with Fallon fronting a band that includes Walker, Molly & The Zombies bassist Catherine Popper (Jack White, Ryan Adams & The Cardinals, Willie Nelson) and drummer Mark Stepro (Hayes Carll, Ben Kweller, Jackson Browne).
