THE SAFETY FIRE has always pushed the boundaries of technical, progressive metal since their inception. With their expansive atmospheres and soaring melodies, it’s easy to see why vocalist Sean McWeeney, bassist Lori Peri, drummer Calvin Smith and guitarists Derya “Dez” Nagle & Joaquin “Jo” Ardiles are now at the forefront of their ever growing genre. THE SAFETY FIRE released their debut album Grind The Ocean to critical acclaim at the beginning of April this year through InsideOut Music.
The band recently finished a UK tour with French metal titans GOJIRA, which followed a killer show at this year’s Download Festival at Donington Park. The band documented these dates and have created a stunning live video for the track “DMB (FDP).” Dez explains a bit more about how the video was made and why they picked this track in particular:
“‘DMB (FDP)’ is one of our favourite songs to play live and was an obvious choice for this video. We love touring, and wanted to give a wider audience a glimpse into what our live show is all about. We filmed over several UK dates, including our performance at Download and our recent run with GOJIRA. We were lucky enough to have our good friend Jamie Carter produce the video, whose eclectic credits include RISE TO REMAIN, CONOR MAYNARD, FUNERAL FOR A FRIEND and PROFESSOR GREEN to name a few. Other filming duties were handled by our friends and crew including our brü Adam Nolly Getgood, who recently joined PERIPHERY. More importantly this video will help spread the message of #FDP. Jokes.”
