The Band Called FUSE / Press

“The Band Called Fuse are forging a vision for a new cultural movement that brings together eclectic styles, ideas, and people. Like their diverse community of dedicated fans (dubbed “Soul Rockas”) and the scene they’ve built around their music, The Band Called Fuse is made up of people from radically different backgrounds and traditions. Crave is giving adding fuel to their efforts with the world premiere of their new video for "Soul Rock Anthem". With members and influences from around the world, the band’s sound ranges from rock to soul to hip hop and beyond, recalling flavors of The Roots, The Fugees and beyond. The Band Called Fuse was born when two brothers from Belgium, X (guitar) and Toast (bass), met up with Mr. Pockett (drums), Soul Qloc (MPC, MC), and Silent Knight (lead MC) while playing in various projects around New Brunswick, NJ. In 2010, they launched a recurring hip hop showcase in New York City called The Line Up that has attracted the attention of hundreds of”

“Silent Knight and The Band Called Fuse (who I'll admit I've been sleeping on heavy) come through with a set of visuals for "Soul Rock Anthem." Backed with distorted guitars and thick drums, SK spits gems on some Rage Against the Machine-ish, if Rage were hardcore Hip-Hop heads.”

“Made up of members with radically different cultural and musical backgrounds, The Band Called Fuse blends influences ranging from soul to rock to hip hop into a sound that recalls bands like The Roots, Rage Against the Machine, and The Fugees while also forging musical frontiers into a totally new genre called Soul Rock. Having worked their way up from playing house shows to attracting the attention of luminaries like Ali Shaheed Muhammad (A Tribe Called Quest) and sharing stages with Talib Kweli, MURS, and Vonnegutt, The Band Called Fuse developed a grassroots, community-driven attitude that they represent on their new single, “Soul Rock Anthem”. Featuring wailing guitar solos, deep pocketed rhythms, and poised vocal delivery, ”Soul Rock Anthem” paints a hard-hitting picture of the band’s forthcoming fan-funded EP, Impossible Dream, out 2/11/14.”
