"Rock and roll is very much alive and well on this album," says Brett Scallions, the original frontman of Fuel. The band’s new album Puppet Strings (March 4 / MRI) marks its first with Scallions in 14 years.
The sound is pure, anthemic rock, inspired by the punk records of the band’s youth (the heavy, driving "Yeah" and first single, "Soul to Preach") and the Memphis blues of Brett’s hometown ("Hey Mama"). "The four of us were simply trying to write the best songs we possibly could," adds Brett, who co-wrote the album with guitarist Andy Andersson and bassist Brad Stewart of Shinedown. "With Andy and Brad, I found unity I always craved."
During his time away from Fuel, Brett continued to write music and toured with Ray Manzarek and Robby Krieger of the Doors. "When I left Fuel I was miserable. It didn’t feel much like a band anymore. Unity was none existent. Singing with Ray and Robby opened a whole new perspective on music and life for me. I realized how much music is truly all about freedom and not being confined to formats or singles."
Brett, Andy and Brad will be on the road throughout 2014 in support of Puppet Strings.
Fuel formed in 1989, in a Jackson, Tennessee bar. The band signed to Sony and in 1998, released their well-received debut album Sunburn and massive single "Shimmer". Their second album Something Like Human hit multi-platinum status with the singles "Innocent" and "Hemorrhage (In My Hands)", followed by 2003’s Natural Selection ("Fall on Me"). The band has been selling out dates since 2010 with the current lineup and return of Scallions.
