London progressive math metal group The Safety Fire have been hard at work on the follow up to their breakthrough debut album from last year “Grind The Ocean” which saw them touring alongside revered bands such as Gojira and now we have the first fruits of their hard labour over the last several months. The first track to surface from The Safety Fire’s second album, which is to be entitled “Mouth Of Swords”, is called Red Hatchet, and the band have released a brand new music video to accompany it.
Dez Nagle, guitarist from The Safety Fire (who also acted as producer), had this to say about the video for Red Hatchet:
“We had so much fun recording and writing the album in vests and cut offs we thought it would be the best way to capture the energy of the song visually for all the world to see. Also we all have great legs, so it was just an excuse to show off our sexy pins.”
Check out the Red Hatchet video below:
The band have also announced you can download the Mp3 of Red Hatchet for free if you give them your email address, which sounds pretty fair to us. Get Red Hatchet Here.
As well as revealing the video for Red Hatchet, The Safety Fire recently announced a short UK tour to take place just after the release of Mouth Of Swords. Support on the tour will come from ZOAX, and full details can be found below:
