“Rock and roll is very much alive and well on this album,” says Brett Scallions, the frontman of Fuel.  The band’s new album Puppet Strings (March 4 / MRI) marks its first with Scallions in 10 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 To”) and the Memphis blues sound that taps into Brett’s Tennessee roots (“Hey Mama”). “We were simply trying to write the best songs we possibly could, ” adds Brett, who wrote the album with guitarist Andy Andersson and bassist Brad Stewart, formerly of Shinedown.  “With Andy and Brad, I found the unity I’d 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 nonexistent.  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, Brad and drummer Shannon Boone will be on the road throughout 2014 in support of Puppet Strings.
