Gaslight Anthem singer/guitarist Brian Fallon is set to perform at Manchester’s Ritz following the release of his solo album Painkillers.

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.

The tour will find Fallon accompanied by a band comprised of The Gaslight Anthem guitarist Alex Rosamilia, The Horrible Crowes’ Ian Perkins and the Molly and the Zombies’ bassist  Catherine Popper.
