"There is only one original of anything" exclaims Scallions, "and that includes Fuel. The original lineup with Carl, Jeff, Jody and myself will always be something special to all of us, and our first Fuelies (a term for Fuel fans) but it has been thirteen years since the original lineup was intact, and since then many great musicians have come and gone. The lineup I put together for Fuel is not meant to replace or diminish what any of the original members created. Just the opposite, it is to give our fans a live destination, and to keep the Fuel name alive for a new generation to discover. Maybe someday we'll all get on the same page and play together again, but life happens and the next thing you know you just can't jump on a bus and take off for a month, let alone a year."
Original bassist Jeff Abercrombie is currently the owner/operator of Thud Studios, a well reputed destination for rehearsing and recording in the greater Los Angeles area www.thudstudios.com. Original lead guitarist, and principal song writer Carl Bell is producing new music for a diversified group of artists. Bell has also been busy writing for film and television. When reached for comment Bell stated, " Look, Brett sang all of this stuff on the bands biggest records, so it's pretty clear that the fans want to hear him singing Fuel songs, and that is what they are going to get. Our fans are important and they deserve a Fuel, even if it isn't an original lineup. Who knows maybe someday there will be an all original reunion. I have learned to never say never."

Frontman Christopher Roberts is one of Never Your Zero's most potent musical weapons with a versatility that allows him to shift from guttural screams to a haunting melodic chorus in an instant. Roberts is backed by an insanely tight rhythm section in drummer Clay Wise and bassist Matthew Gene, who power Never Your Zero's powerful sonic soundscape.
Wise's drumming style sounds like the thunderous attack of Vinnie Paul, and then mixed with Gene's thick bass style, which is reminiscent of a young Jason Newsted. Never Your Zero guitarist Darren Wise layers on some razor-sharp guitar riffs that will stick inside your head after the music stops blasting out of your speakers.
Never Your Zero's explosive live show has earned them support slots for national hard rock veterans Sevendust, Pop Evil, Saliva, Shamen's Harvest, Powerman 5000, Buckcherry, and countless others.
Having recently signed with Nashville-based, The Label Group, the band is currently wrapping up their debut album at NRG Studios in Los Angeles with producer Jay Baumgardner (Evanescence, Papa Roach, Drowning Pool).
With a full tour of the United Stats planned for late 2016, Never Your Zero are on the verge of breaking through with not just a great sounding record, but a fresh and honest belief that through real hard work comes true reward.
