Fallon was a commercial hard rock band from NJ formed in the early 1990’s. They were a proficiently sound and sturdy band that had all the makings of a national prime time act, and they should’ve made it big considering all the talent running through this band.” The band featured Matt Fallon (Steel Fortune, Anthrax, Skid Row) on lead vocals, along with Aaron Wilkinson (Raze) on guitar and vocals, Glen Moran (Pierce, Monroe) on bass and vocals, and Jon Nicholson (Atom Stranger) on drums. Matt Fallon fronted several local acts in the early 1980’s including Steel Fortune where he first teamed up with guitar player Dave Sabo (Skid Row). After playing the club circuit with Steel Fortune for a few years, Matt then joined Anthrax in 1984 and they began recording ‘Spreading the Disease‘, however he left before finishing the album and he was replaced by Joey Belladonna.
Matt teamed up with Dave “Snake” Sabo in 1986 and helped launch Skid Row. He later played songs like ‘Youth Gone Wild‘ and ‘18 And Life‘ in clubs, recorded at Jon Bon Jovi’s studio and opened shows for Bon Jovi.
In December 1986, Skid Row opened for Bon Jovi on their Slippery When Wet tour in Bethlehem and Johnstown, PA. The following year Matt and the band parted ways and he was eventually replaced by Sebastian Bach.
Formed right after Matt left Skid Row, Fallon (1989-1991) recorded a 4 song EP at Sound Design Studios in Philadelphia, PA with Bill Fitch. The EP was shopped to all the labels but the allusive contract was never meant to be.
FnA Records is proud to be releasing the self-titled Fallon album for a second go round. After the first batch sold out, FnA Records was continuously besieged by requests to re-release the album to meet demand. Finally in 2022, the timing was right, and FnA Records are excited for the fans who may have missed this gem the first time around to hear what the buzz is about.
