Admin note: This confirms his divorce. Thank you to everyone who's respected his privacy who knew. Please though be respectful with discussion. Stick to the facts presented in the interview(s) and not rumors. And don't speculate.

We still want to be respectful to his/the band's private life.

Thanks all

Great article. All of what he was going through really came through in the writing on this record. Having gone through something very similar not all that long ago, it probably explains why I've found myself instantly relating to most of the songs.

I thought that was what was happening, but I wasn't going to say anything out of respect for Brian and not to start false rumors. Great read.

Well that sucks a lot for Brian, i feel for the man, and it does explain a lot. But its one of the better and more insightful articles i have read for a while, even though as usual there is too many Springsteenisms.

I think the Springsteen discussion is pretty important for this article, though. It's a big part of what Brian's had to deal with since the band's blown up. It's directly relevant to the article's topic rather than being a lazy reference by a journalist doing a half-assed job.

True true, i just can't help but sigh a little when it gets mentioned.

Great article! Extremely insightful and very well written. It all makes so much sense and will help us to understand the album even better.

My favourite part is this

Talking to Fallon over lunch, I notice he smiles more than I've seen over the last year

That makes me really, really happy.

Oh and if this article provokes any questions for you, you have until Aug. 19th to submit them.

Goosebumps from this article. Brilliant read!

The thing I absolutely love in this band is that it's essentially a learning process for the man himself. He doesn't pretend to know it all, he's just picking it up as he goes and he doesn't deny that. Love the honesty here.

And oh yeah, he's already doing slightly better in the review section than he expected Very Happy

"Fallon thinks his fans will grow to accept the record and understand its place in the progression of the Gaslight Anthem, especially if they've followed his side project, the Horrible Crowes. The press, on the other hand, he firmly believes will hate it. “One out of five,” he says prophetically. “I would put money on it—that of every five reviews, one out of five likes it. And two out of five vehemently hate it.”

I'm really glad that Brian decided to share this info through through Dan Ozzi (whom he trusts). I cringe at how other journalists might have twisted it or added their own assumptions.

Great article confirming what I suspected. Really heartbreaking for him and although not married for 10 years I can completely relate to the feelings expressed through the songs I have heard from Get Hurt so far. I can't wait to hear the album properly on Monday, I know it is exactly what I need in my life right now.

The last line ā€œIā€™m just trying to figure it all out, man.ā€ really struck a chord with me as I am trying to do the same now. I hope I find solace in this album. Thank God for people like Brian.

I don't think i remember reading an interview that I was actually sad when it ended. Great work. Brings more meaning to a lot of what we are hearing on this album.

Think I'd just about die if someone ever compared me to Brian.

If I ever wait his table though, won't bother him. It'd just be nice knowing he actually exists.

I don't really think it's sadder. It says he has prescriptions BUT he chooses to skip the medication to actually work things out on his own. I think that's brave, as long as his decision does not put anyone in danger (and I don't think it does).

Not that, I'm talking about the lyrics of various songs on the record where he's talking about someone else using drugs and how the relationship's crumbling. "Your reds, your blues, and your cocaine." "You only get high on the weekends, why don't you feed on me for a while," that stuff. I've been in relationships like that and it's awful.
