Matthew Ryan: "We all have wolves at our door," and his love for Tom Waits

Did Matthew Ryan just release his best record yet? Possibly. That's a major statement from an artist who's continuously given a master's account at songwriting, both lyrically and melodically. For this new LP, Hustle Up Starlings, he teamed up with friend, and Gaslight Anthem lead man, Brian Fallon and the results are as true to a character study of human struggle and overcoming those obstacles as you can get.

Listen to the interview above and then check out the lead single "(I Just Died) Like an Aviator" below.
