He says that most won't like it...
The Gaslight Anthem's frontman says that he believes critics will hate their new album. Brian Fallon told Noisey in a new interview that "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."
Fallon added that the LP, Get Hurt, was inspired by his divorce from his wife. "Sometimes, I don't even know how it happened. I don't even know how it got like this," says Fallon of the break-up. "All I know is that it did. And I now have to figure out: What do I do now?"
Drummer Benny Horowitz added that writing the album was good for Fallon, saying, "Brian doesn't really talk about that stuff too much," he said. "But from my perspective, I do think there was something cathartic about making this record. I think for him, there was something extra at stake. Maybe writing it was necessary to feel better."
