August 20, 2021 (New York, NY) – Alternative rock band FUEL today release their second single “Don’t Say I”, from their highly anticipated full-length album, ÅNOMÅLY out on
October, 2021.
“Don’t Say I” is a modern evolution of the classic FUEL sound. Lead singer John Corsale’s passionate and soulful vocals soar from beginning to end in an impressive display of his talent. Carl Bell’s well-known songwriting combines catchy melodies with powerful, thoughtful lyrics.
John sings, “Just know that I die for your hand and live for your touch, Don’t say I, that I never tried for you, Don’t Say I, that I never loved you…” over the classic sound of the flowing guitar riffs and powerful drums that FUEL fans have come to love and expect.
In supporting the release of “Don’t Say I”, Stereogum says, “‘Don’t Say I’ is a mid tempo anthem that showcases Corsale’s vocal strength and Bell’s ear for magnetic melody.”
Carl told the outlet, “‘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.
“Don’t Say I” follows the release of the debut single from ÅNOMÅLY, “HÅRD”. That song was met with high praise from fans, press and radio.
LoudWire’s Chad Childers said this about “HARD”: “Fuel is giving us rock radio’s next earworm with ‘Hard’. Capturing the spirit of their late ‘90s/early 2000s heyday with returning guitarist-songwriter Carl Bell and drummer Kevin Miller, the band is hitting on all cylinders showcasing the vocal dexterity of new singer John Corsale with a driving rock anthem that’s guaranteed to stick in your head for days. ‘Hard to shake it now?’ Why would you want to?
Currently sitting at #23 on the Mediabase Active Rock Charts, the song is also enjoying airplay on SiriusXM’s Octane as well as many other radio stations across the country.
Carl Bell returns as the principal songwriter, music producer and also mixer on this new record, re-taking the reins as he has in the past with the anthology of previous FUEL hits. The venerable songsmith wrote and recorded the record in his Las Vegas studio with vocals recorded by John Corsale at Soundmine Recording Studio and King Studios in Pennsylvania.
FUEL recently debuted their new lineup with a few live performances and tour dates will be announced soon.
ABOUT FUEL
Just before the turn-of-the-century, FUEL quietly emerged with a melodic brand of hard rock rooted in stellar songwriting and heavy guitars. 1998’s Sunburn not only went platinum, but it also yielded enduring anthems such as “Shimmer” and “Bittersweet.” Its 2001 follow-up, Something Like Human, earned a double-platinum certification and elevated them to arenas. The lead single “Hemorrhage (In My Hands)”  landed at the top of the charts and stayed #1 for 13 weeks and became the No. 6 Alternative Rock song of the past 25 years according to Billboard’s Alternative Chart 25th Anniversary: Top 100 Songs, making it “one of the Top Ten most-listened to alternative rock songs for the past 30 years.” Their music appeared everywhere from Prison Break, Daredevil, and Scream 3 to WWE Pay-Per-View events. 2003’s Natural Selection bowed in the Top 15 of the Billboard Top 200 and garnered a GRAMMY® Award nomination in the category of “Best Engineered Album. Non-Classical.” Their catalog continued to resound throughout popular culture as well. Daughtry made headlines covering “Hemorrhage” on American Idol, while modern platinum rock juggernaut Red also released their own version, and Hands Like Houses earned notice performing “Shimmer” on Triple J in Australia.
