Brian Fallon is set to release his debut solo album ‘Painkillers’ in a few weeks ahead of a short run of UK dates. However, he’s added an extra date to that tour because there’s no such thing as too much Fallon.
The intimate gig, taking place at London’s St. Pancras Old Church, takes place April 11th (album release day) and tickets go on sale Saturday (January 30th) morning. Here, have some informative tweets.

Speaking to Upset, Brian Fallon explains, “The only goal I set myself when I sat down was ‘can you write a good, simple song that means something to you and to those who will be listening?’ I feel like, as a solo artist, you don’t really have ‘a sound’. I didn’t have to check that what I was writing was fitting in any boxes. I didn’t have to think ‘oh so how does this compare to ‘The ‘59 Sound’? Where will I play it in the set?’ I had nothing, and could start fresh. It really freed me up and I needed that. I was burning out. I was having a hard time.”
The full run of UK dates now looks like this.

06 Glasgow, O2 Abc Glasgow
