Gaslight Anthem Offshoot the Horrible Crowes Get to Work on Debut Album
Published Apr 04, 2011When he's not rocking out with the Gaslight Anthem, singer Brian Fallon indulges his slower side with his newly minted side-project, the Horrible Crowes. The last time we heard from the band, which also feature collaborator Ian Perkins, they were in the process of writing and demoing a new set of songs. Now, they have revealed their plans for their debut album.
In an update on the band's blog, Fallon revealed that they have finished 15 songs. Eleven of 12 of these will appear on their upcoming record, which is currently untitled.
The album will be produced by Ted Hutt, who also helmed the Gaslight Anthem's last two LPs. Hutt is a founding member of Flogging Molly and has produced albums for Dropkick Murphys, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones and more. He will also play guitar on the album.
Recording will officially begin on May 2. Before that, Fallon revealed, "We're all flying in from all over the world to meet in my hometown in New Jersey around the last week in April to start pre-production."
The release date for the record isn't yet confirmed, but according to a Facebook message, "It looks like you'll be hearing from us before the year turns too cold."
As for what the band sound like, Fallon previously said, "If Tom Waits, the National, the Afghan Whigs, Bon Iver and Nick Cave made a band with Percy Sledge, that'd be called the Horrible Crowes."
