Dressed in a Sun Records T-shirt and a jean jacket, lead singer Brian Fallon took the stage as an older and wiser musician than he did in years past. Succinct in his banter between songs, the band’s frontman was both nostalgic and a tad reserved. The crowd hung on his words, but he didn’t spout life lessons. He simply talked about the differences between playing music now and when he was young. 
...
The band behind Fallon had undergone a similar transformation — trading in some of the energy for more of a professional, polished appearance. The sound benefitted — each song sounded tight and on time. The lead guitarist hit every note, the bass lines were thick and full and the drums were as good as on the records. I would be remiss if I did not mention that the drummer’s bass drum cover featured a picture of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar as Roger Murdock from the film “Airplane!”

"...maturity beyond its years." Why is it that this line feels like it will be popping up a lot when the next record is released?

When I met Brian in Cincinnati, someone that spoke to him before I got my chance must have asked him something about the direction of the band, or what the new sound would be like (I didn't clearly hear the start of the question/conversation). But I clearly heard Brian say (something to the effect of) "well when you're 25,27 you write different songs than you do when you're in your 30s. So we're just doing what we're feeling now"

I suppose that sort of line will follow them now. Kinda good and bad I suppose. I will take the positive from it that they are much more experienced now and have honed their craft Smile I'm really excited to hear the new album as Handwritten was such a different sound (still my least fav album) but it opened up new directions to take the music. Halloween I guess could be a preview for what's to come. Great journey so far with TGA
