Fuel will release their first album in 18 years, “Ånomåly”, due out in October. Carl Bell reunites with original Fuel drummer Kevin Miller on the album, accompanied by new singer John Corsale (lead vocals, guitar) replacing Brett Scallions, Mark Klotz (guitar, vocals) and Tommy Nat (bass, vocals).
“We were just patient with each other,” Carl says about reuniting with Miller. “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.”
Kevin added, “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.”
Carl adds: “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.'”
