Rock Band Measures ‘Suck Factor’

COLUMBUS, Ohio (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – The members of the band Fuel may know how to rock, but they also know exactly what sucks.

Fuel, whose huge hit “Hemorrhage (In My Hands)” blasted them up the charts, split with their original singer last year, and songwriter Carl Bell says the band’s search for a new singer included some really terrible tryouts.

Bell says, “One guy came in and told us he squeezes a bloody sponge over his head when he sings our song ‘Hemorrhage’ at karaoke bars. A lot of people don’t have a suck meter.”

Eventually the search led Bell to Toryn Green, who now handles the mic, and Bell’s grateful the search weeded out the weirdos.

Bell says, “It’s been great with Toryn. Nobody wants to get on the tour bus with someone you hate. It makes for a short tour – or a really long one.”

Fuels album, Angels and Devils, hits stores August 7th. For more music, check out fuelweb.com
