The Gaslight Anthem Singer/Guitarist Debuts New Single A Wonderful Life

11 DECEMBER 2015 (Toronto, ON) - Gaslight Anthem’s Brian Fallon debuts his new single, A Wonderful Life, from his hugely anticipated solo album, PAINKILLERS, arriving March 11, 2016, via Island Records / Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. PAINKILLERS marks the first solo album from Fallon, known far and wide as singer/guitarist of The Gaslight Anthem, as well as such acclaimed outfits as The Horrible Crowes and Molly & The Zombies. Produced by studio superstar Butch Walker (Taylor Swift, Frank Turner, Keith Urban), the album was recorded earlier this year at Nashville’s Taxidermy Studios with Fallon fronting a crack 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). PAINKILLERS once again affirms Fallon’s elemental gifts as a songwriter and storyteller, booming with insistent imagery, narrative craft, and the extraordinary emotional acuity that has informed his music since the very start. Fallon will herald PAINKILLERS with a major series of live dates, accompanied by a stellar combo comprised of The Gaslight Anthem guitarist Alex Rosamilia, The Horrible Crowes’ Ian Perkins and the aforementioned Catherine Popper. The shows get underway January 7 in Virginia and continue throughout April, with one Canadian stop scheduled for March 13 at Toronto’s Opera House. Additional live dates will be announced soon, including a full-scale world tour following the album’s release. The Gaslight Anthem announced plans this summer to go on a hiatus following a massively successful European tour that culminated in a remarkable headline show at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire and emotional appearances at the UK’s legendary Reading & Leeds Festival. The band’s most recent release is 2014’s widely acclaimed fifth studio album, Get Hurt.
