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.'"
