Fuel Release New Album "Puppet Strings"

Fuel released Puppet Strings, its first release in seven years, last week. Singer Brett Scallions is back in the fold and happy to be there. However, original members Carl Bell and Jeff Abercrombie are not in the band any longer. What a tangled rock web they weave.
"I think getting away from Fuel for awhile was really good for me and my songwriting," Scallions said. "I told those guys, 'Hey, if you think you can do this without me, I give you my blessing.' I'm not going to wish ill will on anybody. Unfortunately for them, it's not easy for any band to go out and succeed without the original singer. So now I feel like it's my turn to have the freedom of going out and making a record and calling it Fuel and being able to control the destiny of what we do."
Scallions called some of the songs "a departure of what Fuel has been thought of as being. There's more blues-based songs on here than in the past. There's a little bit of punk rock and stuff in there as well."
Will you pull those Puppet Strings?
