Well it’s happening again. The Safety Fire will be joining Protest The Hero on their UK/EU tour next week with The Contortionist. The Faceless was originally supposed to be on the trek, but having lost a couple members over the past few weeks they’ll be sitting this one out.
How cool would it have been to see System of a Down play with The Dillinger Escape Plan back in the Toxicity days? If you’re Derya “Dez” Nagle from The Safety Fire, it’s one of your most memorable shows as a teenager. When we interviewed the guitar wizard last year he told us about the performance he saw at Brixton Academy, and how it blew his mind. “Who is this band?” he thought the first time he witnessed Dillinger’s crazy stage antics.
Protest The Hero, Battlecross, The Safety Fire, Intervals, and Night Verses will hit the road for a spring tour.
The Safety Fire wrapped up their North American tour last month supporting Between the Buried and Me.
Just weeks before The Safety Fire’s sophomore album, Mouth Of Swords, came out in September, guitarist Derya “Dez” Nagle was involved in a cycling accident and had to undergo surgery. “Few weeks of rest and all will be well,” he said back in late July about the incident.
