“Power rock outfit Fuser are one of New Zealand’s most popular rock bands in recent years. The band have been receiving international praise and gaining new fans from all over the globe. Fuser’s latest single The Rules is a hard heavy hitting single with more grunt than a Bugatti Veyron. Ian from Fuser says “Its an exciting time for the band at present as this is our 6th single to go to radio and we have had some phenomenal success with radio stations all over the globe picking up our past releases, so we hope this one follows in the foot steps of our past releases”. Promoted worldwide by Musik Radio Promotions ,Fuser’s last release 600 Cops topped the radio playlist charts in the US. Check them out at https://www.facebook.com/fuserband”

“New single for Fuser - Safe to Say. The single is from their yet-to-be-named third album. It will be released through Do IT Records and distributed worldwide through US-based distributor Music and Film. With deliciously arranged instruments and emotive vocals from front man, Ian Black, Safe to Say is different to previous Fuser tracks. And the line, “I think it’s safe to say you’re not the only one who’s been in love” reveals a softer side to the “riff masters”. “The song is about a conversation with someone less experienced who is going through a broken relationship,” says Black. Safe to Say and the upcoming album, which has a tentative release date of September 2015, was recorded at Show Pony studios in Auckland. “It was self-produced with help from Show Pony’s Amos Clarke,” says Black. Black says the album is more diverse than earlier efforts. “It’s got bluesy tracks, some electronica as well as our usual style,” he says.”

“Sell Me Out Gets International Radio Play Fuser’s latest single, Sell Me Out, is being broadcast by 3-4000 FM and Internet radio stations worldwide. Recently, US-based radio pluggers Music and Film agreed to promote the song. Now, Sell Me Out is averaging 3,600 plays a week in territories which include the USA, UK and Asia. “It’s a real vote of confidence because Music and Film only promote music they think will work,” says lead singer, Ian Black. “They must know their market because Sell Me Out started getting played immediately.” Black says that the airplay will be very good for Fuser’s brand". He doesn’t yet know what the financial return will be, though. “We’ll just have to wait and see,” he says. Fuser plans to continue promoting Sell Me Out for 3-4 months and then release another song. Black: “It takes about three months for people to take any real notice of a song and a year to 18 months for a band to properly established their brand".”

Singer/guitarist Ian Black says the video is like nothing the band has done before. “I really don’t know how to describe it … there must be eight or nine things happening at any one time, it’s just full on!” says Black. It’s one hell of an angry song. The guitar riff and chorus, has shades of Nirvana and is so infectious it makes you want to run down the street smashing shop windows. Sell me out has also been nominated for the Hollywood Music in Media Awards (HMMA) in Hollywood, California, USA. This nomination promises more valuable international exposure to the band, as they promote themselves into the USA.”
