Brian Fallon is singer, songwriter and musician best known as the front man of the rock band The Gaslight Anthem. Fallon’s interest in music started at an early age as his mother was a folk musician. He released his first cassette recording at the age of 17. He released an EP in 2004 before forming a band called This Charming Man which would later be renamed to The Gaslight Anthem. He wrote several of their songs and recorded five full-length studio albums before the band entered an indefinite hiatus in 2015, which ended with an appearance at Reading Festival in August 2017. During his time with Gaslight Anthem, Fallon formed several other side projects, including the band The Horrible Crows (formed 2011) and Molly and the Zombies (formed 2013). In September 2015, he announced to fans via social media that he had begun work on a solo album. Painkillers was released in March 2016 and was the first major project for Fallon since Gaslight Anthem went on hiatus. He toured in support of the album with his backing band, The Crows, which included Gaslight Anthem guitarists Alex Rasamilia and Ian Perkins. His second solo album, Sleepwalkers, hit shelves in early 2018.
