    Heard from a little birdie (really, overheard someone talking at a music store about it) that Nolly is going to play bass in TSF. Not sure how that'll balance with Periphery, but it seems credible to some extent (studio bass, at least) seeing that he's been working with Dez on new material.

    Genuinely heartbroken :( This sucks so bad, they're one of my own bands biggest influences. I wonder if we'll end up hearing any of the new material?

    For those of you without Facebook:


    "The Safety Fire

    We had you guys going for a while there, ey? You truly were all April Fools...

    However, the harsh reality is, we have actually broken up. Maybe we will do a farewell show sometime. If you want to grab some merch to show people you were once cool, or are now cool and know some defunct band that no one has heard of in a few months time, then click the link below. When they're gone, they're gone for good.

    The Safety Fire — Home

    Thanks for all the support over the years - from Cruisin' to Smüth Beats, we had a real swell time. Thanks to everyone who bought a shirt, came to a show, let us sleep on their floors, fed us...but most of all, thank you to those who ever said, shouted, screamed, mumbled or merely whispered....

    Fucck The Safety Fire."

    Man I am so incredibly bummed about this. Their style was so unique and left such an impression on my own playing style, will be missed! On the plus side, I grabbed that mega mystery box from their merch store so I'll have plenty of TSF swag to keep reppin'

    Damn, this was a rollercoaster for me. I scrolled up and saw that "Jo (@jovendor) replied "'what jive turkey been tellin' you them lies". Got excited then saw that post on FB. :(
    I wonder why they broke up? They seemed so into it the past few times I saw them live.

    They had good run, and they left as they came-surrounded in mystery.

    Was just thinking of these guys the other day. Probably my favorite band to come out of that sort of djent, post-djent kinda scene... really unique vibe and fantastic songs.

    Hopefully some form of their music lives on in their future, individual projects.

    I am very saddened by this. I'm going to buy one of those mystery boxes as tribute. Also I hope to one day get a tattoo from Joe.

    Fvck The Safety Fire!

    I don't get around nearly as much as the rest of you so I no doubt missed a lot of similarities to and influences from other music, but MoS was the most vibrant and exciting work I've heard from anyone in at least a decade.

    It took the prog/djent work from Grind the Ocean and pushed it to another level with what felt like a bigger focus on song writing over "riffathons" (not to say that I don't love me some sweet riffs), not to mention a much more melodic effort from Sean.

    A big shame, the band had potential to write great records. I had a lot of fun with Mouth of Swords and I return to the album every now and then. Hopefully they will return in some way or another. Nevertheless, I wish them luck!

    I basically already said what I was gonna say on the last page when there was speculation of them breaking up. I'm really bummed to hear they actually are broken up :(

    I've heard they are working on something new. Pretty much an all-star cast too.

    They were there in the beginning of all this scene. Glad I got to see them a couple times. Awesome records. RIP.
