THE SAFETY FIRE Premieres New Track by Track Video

After an extremely busy summer playing Download Festival, Brutal Assault, Hevy Festival and supporting heavyweights GOJIRA overseas, THE SAFETY FIRE is excited to be joining PERIPHERY and BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME for a month-long tour of Europe. In regards to the tour, guitarist Derya ‘Dez’ Nagle comments: “It has been a while since we last toured Europe and the UK and quite frankly, we can’t wait for it. BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME are one of our favourite bands and to share a stage with them every night for over a month is just awesome. Then to be reunited with our brüs in PERIPHERY after our US stint with them will no doubt be a fun time for all. We shall see you at the shows, come by the merch stand and get involved in the jokes!”

THE SAFETY FIRE will be touring in support of their debut album, Grind The Ocean, which was released to critical acclaim at the beginning of April this year through InsideOut Music.

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.

“If you’re on the lookout for great progressive metal in 2012, these guys come highly recommended.” — GUITAR WORLD

“Imagine a startling mix of AT THE DRIVE IN and KARNIVOOL , melded to the fluid harmonics of THE MARS VOLTA,the distracting glories of BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME and the sonic flows of CIRCLES…The album is a tempestuous maelstrom of consuming emotions and atmospheres layered upon polyrhythmic disinterested structures and expansive and attention grabbing melodies and vocal harmonies.” — THIS IS NOT A SCENE

“‘Grind The Ocean’ is soothing yet fierce, familiar yet unexpected, and a great debut.” — HEAVY BLOG IS HEAVY

“THE SAFETY FIRE’s music is dynamic and diverse throughout each song, able to capture and maintain a listener’s attention across their multiple 6-minute epics.” — METAL SUCKS
