Brian Fallon has announced a UK and European tour for early next year.

He’ll play a total of 17 dates with his band The Howling Weather, kicking off at Birmingham’s O2 Institute on February 20 and wrapping up with a set at the Limelight in Belfast on March 11.

The dates have been lined up in support of his upcoming as-yet-untitled studio album, which is now available for pre-order. No firm release date has been set.

Tickets for the shows will go on general sale via SeeTickets from Friday (October 27) (opens in new tab). Support will be provided by David Hause.

Fallon released his debut solo album Painkillers in 2016 after his band The Gaslight Anthem revealed they were going on hiatus in 2015.

Fallon said at the time: “This is renewing my faith in the whole music thing, reminding me it’s still important and still does what it’s supposed to do.”
