London progressive metallers THE SAFETY FIRE will release their second album, "Mouth Of Swords", on September 3 in North America via InsideOut Music. The CD was once again produced by the band's own Derya "Dez" Nagle (guitar), who previously worked with Frank Turner (MONGOL HORDE), RISE TO REMAIN, and THE HAARP MACHINE. It follows the release of last year's acclaimed debut album, "Grind The Ocean", which saw the band tour the world with the likes PERIPHERY, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, GOJIRA, PROTEST THE HERO, among others.
The brilliant artwork for "Mouth Of Swords" was created by Kim Taylor. In addition, Tommy Rogers from touring partners BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME has provided guest vocals on one track.
A song from the upcoming CD, "Red Hatchet", can now be streamed in the YouTube clip below. This is the first taste of new THE SAFETY FIRE music since "Grind The Ocean" was released.
Comments Nagle: "We are so excited we can finally share some new music with everyone.
"We are all so incredibly proud of this album and feel 'Red Hatchet' is a great introduction to 'Mouth Of Swords'."
