The Safety Fire:  to enter studio in March for sophomore album
Progressive metallers THE SAFETY FIRE will enter London’s The Dairy studio in mid-March to record their sophomore album and follow-up to their critically acclaimed debut, Grind The Ocean. This currently untitled release will be produced again by the band’s own Derya “Dez” Nagle (guitar), who previously worked with Frank Turner (MONGOL HORDE), RISE TO REMAIN, and THE HAARP MACHINE. In regards to this upcoming album, Dez comments: "We are extremely excited to be heading back into the studio to record the follow-up to our debut album, ‘Grind The Ocean.’ We have done some amazing tours in the last year and have really grown as a band. We are just really hyped about the new material. It has been great to get into this creative headspace. I'll try to avoid all the usual band clichés of saying how this album will be ‘heavier and more melodic than the first,’ but what I will say is this will be the best album of all time. Ever."

To purchase THE SAFETY FIRE’s debut, Grind The Ocean, please head over to CM Distro or to iTunes
