At the end of January, THE SAFETY FIRE will kick-off an 11-date UK tour with tech-metal behemoths THE FACELESS, making sure that 2013 begins with an almighty bang. Guitarist Derya “Dez” Nagle had this to say about the tour and the past year:


“This has been an absolutely amazing year for TSF. Aside from releasing our debut album, touring the States and Europe and playing some amazing festivals, we have had the pleasure of playing with some awesome bands. We are glad to see the trend is continuing on into 2013, with what is set to be an amazing tour with THE FACELESS. Exciting times ahead. Hype.”

“Right now the UK progressive metal scene is extremely healthy, and the emergence of THE SAFETY FIRE is about to provide another boost.” – METAL HAMMER


“Complex forwarding thinking metal… You have to be pretty damned good to stand out from the crowd these days. London crowd THE SAFETY FIRE do so by using the oldest trick in the book – by writing proper, solid songs.” – ROCKSOUND


“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
