Brian  says band plan to Experiment on Next Record --'Might Be the Weird' 20121214-gaslight-anthem-x600-1355502949

Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon knows the New Jersey rockers will be on the road until at least October supporting Handwritten, their breakthrough album released this year. After that, it will be the perfect opportunity to start writing songs for the next record.

"I think some bands stop and they're just like, 'Oh, we made a record, time to make another record.' But you lose something in that," Fallon told Rolling Stone backstage at KROQ's Almost Acoustic Xmas in Los Angeles. "If you start writing your songs now, you've got essentially a year to get all the bullshit out of the way – like all the songs where you're like, 'That's too weird, I don't like that.'"

I'm scared, haha. It'll be really odd if I go from "There isn't a single song written by TGA that I don't like" to having to add "...except every song on their latest album". Hopefully I'm just getting ahead of myself. Elsie was a bit different and had to grown on me, now I think it's the best thing Brian's ever done. And if doing something different allows them to grow artistically, can't argue with that.

I think a different approach to songwriting is what they need right now. And let's be honest, Brian has promised "big changes" before but they've been minimal so I don't think we have to worry about them becoming a different band or anything.

I think whatever they come out with will be good. And to be honest they have changed. If you listened to Sink or Swim then Handwritten, they're very different sounds but both very good. Now fill in the rest of the albums and EPs and the timeline makes more sense. you can listen to how they got to where they are now. Whatever Studio Album 5, I trust it will make sense in the long run.

And to quote another Rolling Stone Interview pre-handwritten release.

In the build up to new albums Brian has come out with all kinds of comments about what it will sound lke, half of them contradict each other so in this very early stage you gotta take it with a pinch of salt. He'll change his mind, those comments just explain his frame of mind right now. In a years time when they're writing etc he will have had many other frames of mind and will have a shit load more ideas by then. Worriers, don't! We'll all like it and yeah it will be a bit different but I'd put money on nothing too drastic.

High Five High Five High Five

Exactly. Remember, Handwritten was supposed to be a huge deviation from what they've done in the past; an entirely new sound. It isn't. It's just Brian being Brian...

And note this quote:
Quote :
"We're looking for some other thing – not some other genre, but something else. And it might not be the favorite of everyone, but [it] might be the 'weird' album coming up. I'm pretty sure it is." Then again, he isn't willing to call his shot just yet. "Every time I end up saying what I think it always ends up being different."

That is exactly what I am hoping. Brand New changes a lot every album but still stay true to themselves. Brian never has hid his love for Brand New, either.

That's so true, and I love that about them. Most artists don't seem to change up their sound enough. These guys tend to do it the perfect amount. I love that I can be in the mood for one of their albums in particular because of how it sounds or I can put them all on shuffle and not think anything of their differences.

I do find it funny though how many people are saying "yay, more change the better" when right after Handwritten came out, lots of people were saying "oh no, they changed, it's not bad but not great either." And "I wish it was more like T59S".

To me all the albums hold a particular perfection about them and I love all of them equally which is why I initially was like O NO THE WEIRD ALBUM then read the article and went "O yeah, brian always says this and the result is always awesome". A little change shows growth and maturity, they're not angry 20yr olds any more. they're settled down a bit and know their sound.

Also this is quite a ways off so he could decide to completely change that idea and go a whole other way between now and when he starts getting into a final draft pre-recording.

Yea you never know with these "Brian says he wants make a record which sound like...". I remember he wrote in his diary something like maybe early 2011 he said that the new record are gonna be very bluesy and sound like Dire Strait. Or something. But then it kept chancing. I cant see them doing like totally 'weird' album like for example Radiohead did with Ok Computer and after that with Kid A even more 'weirder' especially compared to Bends. Maybe he do the second Horrible Crowes and revival tour and wants to make a Rock record again Rolling Eyes Smile. But whatever. As long as its good I dont care...

The Gaslight Anthem reveal Pearl Jam inspiration on next record New Jersey band already have plans mapped out for album number five

The Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon claims that Pearl Jam have inspired his band's plans for their next album.

The New Jersey four-piece, who only recently released their fourth album 'Handwritten', already have ideas for their fifth LP according to frontman Brian Fallon. He told Rolling Stone: "I want to do the 'No Code' record [Pearl Jam's fourth album], that one. They did these three rock records, and [then] they all of a sudden went left turn. And everybody went, 'What the hell?' Then later, five years, they went, 'This is amazing.'"

He added: "We're searching for something new to do with songwriting, rather than just piecing together verses and choruses in more of a traditional sense. We're looking for some other thing – not some other genre, but something else. And it might not be the favourite of everyone, but [it] might be the 'weird' album coming up. I'm pretty sure it is."

Pearl Jam had also sold shitload of records to reach their No Code record - not sure TGA have as much leverage as that?

How much of a say does Mercury have? I was just wondering what might happen if they came up with something completely off the wall. Would Mercury have the right to ask them to change it? I really don't think TGA would do that, but I'm curious nonetheless.

Gaslight Anthem drummer Benny Horowitz talks --Oct. 2011

We’ll see, man. I’m a worst-case scenario guy. I went into this with as much skepticism as you could possibly have, and even me, the neurotic, paranoid guy, I’m comfortable with the [record] deal, I’m comfortable with everything we’ve built and everything we’ve done, and as long as I’m comfortable with the songs that come out, I really don’t give a fuck, man. I don’t. I don’t have any scruples about what we did, and as long as I’m proud of the music that comes out, I sorta don’t give a fuck what happens.

I hope they don't have much say. I mean, sure they should have a little, but when it all comes down to it, it should be up to the band to decide what they want to do in the future. If Mercury doesn't like it, they can drop it. I am sure the band wouldn't have a very hard time finding another label. Haha, but I guess they should play it safe for a little bit more before they get wild.

Im sure they wouldnt have a probelm getting another lable but it would depend how long they have signed with mercury for. Mercury im sure have a lot of input with TGA as theyre a buisness and everyone knows reputations of major's
