Brian Fallon (@thebrianfallon) releases first video from new album‏

 Brian Fallon released the official music video for his anthemic single, “A Wonderful Life,” from his hugely anticipated debut solo album, PAINKILLERS arriving March 11 on Island Records. The clip, directed by Andrew Donaghue, beams with an all-to-rare life-affirming positivity as the joyful scenes wrap around the chiming Rickenbackers that herald Fallon’s demand for a meaningful existence.

“We want our lives to matter to those around us,” he told the Wall Street Journal in December. “We want our time here to have a positive impact and not simply to pass by. Even if that costs us.”


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 just completed a major series of American 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 touring continues in two weeks. The full itinerary is below.
