Brian Fallon (Gaslight Anthem) & the Howling Weather with special guests Justin Townes Earle and Worriers live in Asbury Hall at Babeville
About this Event
SLEEPWALKERS sees Brian Fallon once again pushing timeless rock ‘n’ roll into the modern era, recasting British Invasion rock, first generation UK punk, and American pop and soul into a near irresistible sound he’s dubbed – with a nod and a wink towards The Who – as “Heavy R&B.” Recorded earlier this year at New Orleans’ Parlor Recording Studio with producer Ted Hutt – the man behind the board for The Gaslight Anthem’s 2008 breakthrough, THE ’59 SOUND – the album is yet another sterling example of Fallon’s always adventurous artistry, this time fueled by the New Jersey-based tunesmith’s interest in the Vox Continental, the distinctive organ used by favorite artists spanning The Animals and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers to The Specials and Elvis Costello and the Attractions. As emotionally powerful as it is musically exultant,SLEEPWALKERS is Brian Fallon at the very top of his game, now as ever pushing and kicking the rock ‘n’ soul sounds he grew up on into the future.
Known far and wide as singer/guitarist of The Gaslight Anthem, as well as such outfits as The Horrible Crowes and Molly & The Zombies, Fallon made his solo debut with 2015’s masterful PAINKILLERS. The album – which includes the hit singles, “A Wonderful Life” and “Painkillers” – drew widespread critical applause upon its release, with Entertainment Weekly acclaiming Fallon as “a first-rate songwriter with a dozen tunes that wax philosophical about love and the human condition – the dude’s like a modern day Nietzsche with a sleeve tattoo.”
Justin Townes Earle has done a lot of living in his 37 years. For starters, there’s the quick-hit bullet points about his childhood that seem to get dredged up in every interview, article or review about the singer-songwriter and guitarist: Born the son of Steve Earle, who was largely absent during Justin’s childhood; struggles from a young age with addiction and numerous stints in rehab; long stretches of itinerancy and general juvenile delinquency; a youth he once said he was “lucky to have gotten out of alive.
”That’s before we get to the years spent honing his craft in Nashville bars and on club stages all over the world; the various bands, record labels and industry types that have been drawn toward and, at times, pushed away by him; and, finally, the celebrated and rather formidable body of work he has amassed since releasing his critically-acclaimed 2007 debut EP, ?Yuma?.
It’s a seemingly bottomless well of material for a singer-songwriter to mine out of just three decades or so of life. And Earle at times has—most recently on his 2017 album, ?Kids in the Street,? which the artist calls “one of the more personal records I’ve ever made.”
But when it came to his newest effort, ?The ?Saint of Lost Causes,? Earle, these days sober, married and father to a baby girl, chose to focus his gaze outward. “Maybe having a kid has made me look at the world around me more,” he says.
Worriers are a melodic punk band from Brooklyn, New York. They released their second LP "Survival Pop" with SideOneDummy Records in 2017 and have previously released records with Don Giovanni, No Idea and Yo-Yo Records. An extended edition of “Survival Pop” was released by 6131 Records in 2019.
Worriers has toured with Against Me!, John K Samson & The Winter Wheat, Anti Flag, Julien Baker, The Wonder Years, Camp Cope, and more. Described as "a masterfully crafted punk record" by the Village Voice, Worriers' first full-length "Imaginary Life" was produced by Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! and was released on Don Giovanni Records in 2015.
