||After releasing a very promising debut album last year, Grind The Ocean, The Safety Fire have announced the release of their forthcoming second album, entitled Mouth Of Swords on September 2nd, 2013 through InsideOut Music. The band started recording it in March and has now completed it and also revealed its tracklist. You don't have to wait much longer to hear new material as the band will be premiering the song "Red Hatchet" next week.
Tommy Rogers, of Between The Buried And Me fame, will guest on the song "Beware The Leopard (Jagwar)" from the new album.
Vocalist Sean McWeeney had this to say about the completion of the record: "Since our first album we've all concentrated more on having awesome haircuts and facial hair. Does that go some way to explaining why Mouth Of Swords is shit hot? Some may suggest so. But all I know is I'm on it and that's enough for most people. This album is pure gold, and will be priced accordingly."
Derya Nagle had this to add: "I must have said 'there is no topping Winger's 1988 classic 'Winger' on a daily basis during the recording process. I've never been wrong about anything in my whole life, so it was a rather humbling experience to realise that what we were creating was in fact better than Winger's 1988 classic, 'Winger'. I felt like a bozo deluxe. After a while I came to accept that we had created the best album of all time, ever, in the history of known time. The burden of holding such musical gold was too much for us to handle and the band agreed to release it through InsideOut Music, on September 2nd. I'd like to think the music can speak for itself, but music can't speak, so I'll speak on its behalf. Hello. I hope you enjoy me."
