One of the more prominent bands in the new millennium’s post-grunge scene, Fuel originally comprised the talents of singer/guitarist Brett Scallions, guitarist Carl Bell, bassist Jeff Abercrombie, and drummer Kevin Miller. The band took shape in Tennessee in 1989, crafting a blend of polished guitars and melodic melancholia, before relocating to Pennsylvania in 1993. While playing gigs on the local nightclub circuit, Fuel made its studio debut with an independently released EP, 1996’s Porcelain, which sold over 10,000 copies locally and spawned a hometown radio hit with “Shimmer.” Such success brought Fuel to the attention of Sony’s 550 imprint, which released the EP Hazelton the following year. The band’s full-length debut, Sunburn, followed in 1998.
“Shimmer” proved to be Fuel’s calling card once again, as the kinetic single became a modern rock hit and nearly cracked the Top 40. Additional singles like “Bittersweet,” “Jesus or a Gun,” and the title track (featured on the Scream 3 soundtrack) also earned airplay, propelling Sunburn to platinum record status. Fuel’s second album, Something Like Human, followed two and a half years later and launched the hit “Hemorrhage (In My Hands),” which proved to be the band’s biggest single to date. The album itself reached number 17 on the Billboard charts; within a year of its release, it had climbed to double platinum status, making Fuel one of the more successful rock acts of the year.
