Fuel Premiere “Landslide” Video

Fuel have premiered a new video for their new song “Landslide.” This track is from the band’s new album “Ånomåly,” which was released today (October 22).

Carl Bell said the following about the song:

“The song is about the uplifting side of a relationship. The lyric ‘caught in a landslide’ is about being overwhelmed by your feelings for someone. Musically, the entire record is like an unintentional homage to so many great bands and references so many influences: Def Leppard, The Cure, Duran Duran, Zeppelin, the Fixx, Journey, and even KC and the Sunshine Band.”

He also added the following about the video, which was shot on a rooftop in New York:

“Filming a video on a rooftop just always works. I grew up seeing the U2 video and of course the legendary Beatles performance on the roof of Abbey Road so this just felt great to do our own version.”

Fuel Premiere New Song “I’m Gone”

Fuel have premiered a new song titled “I’m Gone.” This track is from the band’s new album “Ånomåly,” which will be released on October 22. Carl Bell commented:

“As a songwriter, the brain becomes hypersensitive to any input and songs can come from anywhere at any time. For ‘I’m Gone’, I was working on another song entirely and I was just checking to make sure the guitar was getting sound through the channel. I absentmindedly just played a riff, and instantly I stopped and thought, ‘What was that? That was kind of interesting.’ I had just played the opening guitar riff to ‘I’m Gone’. I stopped everything I was doing and just started developing the song. Got it to a good place, then recorded it into my phone, and came back later and worked it all out. I thought it was really cool how those guitars just jump right out at you.”

Fuel Premiere New Song “Don’t Say I”

Fuel have premiered a new song titled “Don’t Say I.” This track is from the band’s new album “Anomaly,” which is expected to be released in October.

Carl Bell told Stereogum the following:

“‘Don’t Say I’ was written in March. It was actually the last song written for the record. I’m always looking for the no-brainer song that everybody’s going to love, and those are always super hard to find. Anybody who’s a songwriter knows it’s not easy to come up with stuff that people [love]. I think the latest version of that was Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Driver’s License.’ You heard that song the first time, and you just go, ‘I don’t know why I love that song, but it’s so honest because she’s young.’ And you want that song every time, though it’s super hard to find.”

He also added:

“I really like [“Don’t Say I”]. I think it’s a very strong song for us. I think it also helps bridge the gap between the previous material and the new material. You’ll be able to hear the old, traditional Fuel feelings that you had before with this song with a little modern twist to it as well. We’re really stoked about this song as well as the first song that came out. Basically, I’m really stoked about this whole record, to tell you the truth. I don’t usually feel so strongly about a record, but this one has turned out to be very well for us.”

Fuel Premiere New Song “Hard”

Fuel have premiered a new song titled “Hard.” This track will appear on the band’s upcoming album “Ånomåly.” That effort will be the band’s first to feature their new lineup, which consists of guitarist Carl Bell, drummer Kevin Miller, singer/guitarist John Corsale, guitarist Mark Klotz, and bassist Tommy Nat.

Bell told Loudwire the following about the song:

“I’ve been writing songs for so long and my brain clicked right back into full band mode and I just started writing. You know how you used to keep a recorder by the side of your bed, but now you’ve got your phone there? “Hard,” I still have the recording and I just listened to it the other day.

It was late August [when I wrote it], but I just went back to hear cause it’s interesting to see now that it’s completed where it started. So in my head, the original idea, I recorded it in the middle of the night. I’ve trained myself that when you’ve got a song idea, you put it down cause you never know.

I’ve also learned during writing that you try to grab in that moment of inspiration as much as you can and try to get a working title. There’s a bolt of lightning situation for me as a writer that happens. But as I went back and listened to it, I’ve got little pieces of lyrics already, I know what the guitars are gonna do and what the bass is gonna do and what the drums are gonna do, and even on “Hard,” I sang the solo into the phone cause I heard the solo in my head too. That’s just the way I write and the way I work and that’s how “Hard” came out.”

Fuel Return With New Singer John Corsale, Tease New Song “Hard”

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.

Bell commented:

“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.”

Miller continued:

“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.'”

Red Cover Fuel’s “Hemorrhage (In My Hands)”

Red have released a cover of Fuel’s “Hemorrhage (In My Hands).” This track is from the band’s new EP “The Evening Hate,” which will be released on November 1. Michael Barnes commented:

“We all love music and are old enough to have some pretty big favorites over the years, but when Anthony [Armstrong] suggested ‘Hemorrhage’, we all agreed and loved the song. It actually came together rather quickly and as an added bonus we were able to work with the original producer of the song on our version.”
