Fuel have officially returned with a new lineup consisting of guitarist Carl Bell, drummer Kevin Miller, singer/guitarist John Corsale, guitarist Mark Klotz, and bassist Tommy Nat. The band’s new album, “Ånomåly,” is set to be released in October and a teaser for its first single, “Hard,” can be found below. The full track will be released on July 9.
“We were just patient with each other. From the first conversation, I recognized the same feeling in Kevin’s voice. Fuel was huge for us. It was a great moment in our lives, and Kevin was as grateful for the opportunities that Fuel gave us as I was. We bonded on that fact. I would’ve taken a bullet for him — I still would.”
“For me, new beginnings are exciting, but more often than not, they scare the shit out of me. As much as I love touching my toe to new water, I’m always afraid of the creatures lingering in the depths. I am incredibly excited about this new venture and new lineup of FUEL. Making this record shed a lot of light on what will be, such an amazing amount of talent in this band.”
Bell also added:
“A few months ago, I had no idea I would be returning to Fuel full time, so when it happened, my first call was to Kevin. He simply said, ‘I have the band. I promise you, these are the guys.’ He was right. All are great musicians, and John is this 26-year-old great guitarist as well as a great vocalist and frontman. He sounds fantastic on the album and amazing on our previous hits as well. From the moment I first heard him play and sing, I thought, ‘Wow… This just got real interesting.'”
