Brian Fallon Says The Gaslight Anthem Didn't Want To Be Rock Saviors

(Classic Rock) Brian Fallon admits that he was relieved when The Gaslight Anthem went on hiatus. The Gaslight Anthem singer says the prospect of making another record after the band's divisive last album Get Hurt was more daunting than the launch of his solo career.

He tells Kerrang: "There was definitely a lot of relief because of the pressure. It was always like, 'Gaslight Anthem is gonna be the next Bruce Springsteen, or the next Foo Fighters, or the next Pearl Jam - the next big rock'n'roll band'. And it kind of never happened.

"We got big, which was cool with us, but we didn't need to be the next big rock'n'roll band. We didn't expect to be millionaires. We just wanted to play, and it was awesome that we could pay our bills.

"But the pressure of, I don't know, 'saving' rock'n'roll… that bothered me. 'The Saviours Of Rock'N'Roll' always killed me. Because we were just like, 'Dude, we're not saving anything.'" Read more here.
