Brian Fallon reveals Painkillers

Brian Fallon has issued a steam of the title track from his debut solo album Painkillers.

The record’s out on March 11 and comes after his band The Gaslight Anthem revealed they were going on hiatus last year.

Painkillers follows preview clips of Nobody Wins, A Wonderful Life and Steve McQueen.

Fallon will tour the UK and Europe in April where he’ll play a selection of tracks from his new album plus material from his Horrible Crowes’ debut album Elsie.

He’ll be joined on the trek by Alex Rosamilia, Ian Perkins and Catherine Popper as his back-up band.

Painkillers is available for pre-order (opens in new tab).
