The new Fuel record, Puppet Strings, is scheduled to come out in the first week of March. Before the end of 2013, the band gave fans a preview of the material to come with the song “Yeah!.” Even though the song was put out, it’s not the official first single off of the record. It’s just a teaser of things to come. Talking with Fuel frontman Brett Scallions, he talked about the song and about the actual single that’s going to drop sometime this month.

“It was cool to get that out there but that song is just a teaser to let people know the record is on its way,” explained Scallions. “The real single will be released this month. The song is called “Soul to Preach To” and it’s one of my favorites on the record. To a degree, it’s a heavy rocking tune. It’s got a bluesy vibe to it too.”

That blues vein runs through this new Fuel album, but it’s not that evident on a song like “Yeah!” That song is a catchy rock track and that’s all it’s meant to be according to Scallions.

“It’s a fun party song. It’s something that you’re supposed to shake your ass to,” said Scallions. “Brad was out here with me and we were spending a few days trying to get started on writing. There was a riff that he jammed around one day when we were in a session. At that time it wasn’t anything more than that. We recorded it in the studio and then a month or two later I was going through my files and I came across that riff. I went through it and finished writing the music part of the song. Then I sat down and wrote all the lyrics out for that song. It just kind of ended up like it is.”

Over the Summer Fuel stayed busy with The Big Night Out Tour where they played with Lit, Hoobastank and Alien Ant Farm. The band largely played their back catalogue during that tour because that’s basically what Big Night Out was about, but they also played a new song here and there on the tour and surprised fans with some new material. Brett says that when they played the songs live, they went over well but he was excited to rehearse them for awhile and then take them on the road.

“When we did play songs, it always felt like we were getting a positive reaction. When we played those songs live we hadn’t rehearsed those before. I’m excited to do that with a couple of weeks of rehearsals and go through things to make sure that everything that needs to be there is there,” added Scallions.

When Fuel announces their touring plans to go along with the release of Puppet Strings we’ll post them here. When “Soul To Preach To” gets released we’ll let you know on that too. You can find Fuel on Facebook at
