Bio

Fuel is an American alternative rock/post-grunge band formed by friends Carl Bell, Jeff Abercrombie and Brett Scallions in 1989. Originally from Tennessee, Fuel moved to Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, where they played local Pennsylvania bars and nightclubs. Their first EP Porcelin was released in 1996, and sold well locally, spawning a small radio hit with "Shimmer." The popularity of the EP brought them to the attention of Sony's 550 imprint, which released their second EP, Hazelton, the following year. The band's full length debut, Sunburn, came out in 1998. Shimmer was again included, and almost became a Top 40 hit, while the other singles ("Bittersweet," "Jesus or a Gun," "Sunburn") received some airplay. After laying low for two and a half years, Fuel came back with their second album, Something Like Human, in 2000, and scored a Top 40 hit with "Hemorrage (In My Hands)" (#17), as well as going platinum with the album. A third album, Natural Selection, came out in 2003, and was another big seller. Their songs have been featured on the movie soundtracks including the movie Daredevil which featured the song, "Won't Back Down" and their rendition of "We Three Kings" was included on a Christmas compilation album. Fuel also recorded a song titled "Walk the Sky" for the Godzilla soundtrack. Fuel released its greatest hits album, The Best of Fuel on December 13th, 2005. On February 7, 2006, Fuel announced through their website that singer Brett Scallions had left the band. The band (now just Carl Bell and Jeff Abercrombie) said that he left on friendly terms. "We will all miss him and we wish him the best", Carl wrote in a letter on their website. Fuel is auditioning for a new singer and are in preparation for creating their 4th studio album. In May 2006, Fuel offered American Idol contestant Chris Daughtry their lead singer slot, but he turned it down to perform on his own. Finally Fuel released a 4th album, Angels & Devils, with Toryn Green as new singer. 2) Fuel formed in 1989 and thrived in the early 90's post-hardcore scene. They were from the San Francisco Bay Area, though you wouldn't know it to listen to them. They combined melody, power, and raw emotion to create both personal and political songs. They had a post-punk "DC" sound akin to Fugazi or early Hot Water Music with twi
