Fuel’s Brett Scallions: We’re Not Thinking About the Past

Fuel via Facebook

Fuel hit the big time in the early 2000s with memorable rock hits such as ‘Hemorrhage (In My Hands)’ and ‘Falls on Me,’ off their sophomore album, ‘Something Like Human.’ But, following the release of their 2003 full-length, ‘Natural Selection,’ the guys splintered, and lead singer Brett Scallions eventually left the gig.

Then, last year, Scallions joined up with new bandmates Andy Anderson (guitar), Brad Stewart (bass) and Kenneth Schalk (drums) to rekindle the Fuel fire. The guys recently wrapped up a North American club tour, and they’re currently writing music for a new record, which they hope to release in spring of 2012. Fingers-crossed!

Why the decision to bring Fuel back now? Scallions says it was just time. “I started again last year because I was ready,” Scallions told the Wantagh-Seaford Patch. “You can’t put a timeline on these things. You just have to wait until your mind and your body tell you right now is the right moment.”

Scallions affirms the latest configuration is Fuel is strong and talented. More importantly, they get along like best chums. “They are all great players,” Scallions said. “We’re on the same page [and] the same wavelength, and we have a lot of fun together. We write a lot of great music and you can’t ask for more than that.”

As for the new material, Scallions says the fresh songs are unique and true to Fuel’s current design. “We’re working organically,” he said. “We’re not thinking about the past, we’re thinking about the present and the future and writing the best music that we can.”
