Singled Out: The Horrible Crowes (Brian Fallon of Gaslight Anthem and Ian Perkins)

Gaslight Anthem's Brian Fallon and his friend Ian Perkins' new group The Horrible Crowes release their debut album, "Elsie," today. To celebrate we asked Brian to tell us about the song "Behold The Hurricane." Here is the story:

Behold the Hurricane came about with a riff I had been playing around with for a couple of days on tour, and it sounded like a good idea. We wanted to have a song on the Elsie record that was upbeat enough to catch a listener on the first try and then be really depressing on the lyrical side.

That probably comes from listening to the Smiths as a young man. There's nothing Ian and I like more than a good pop song that's about something awful happening.

I was really proud of that song when we finished it. Lyrically, I felt it was the first song that I had achieved saying something profound and moving with very few words.

At least very few words for my writing.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album right here!
