Fuel has now surpassed two more milestones with its second album, Something Like Human-it has achieved multi-platinum status for sales topping two million and has now been on the Billboard 200 album chart for one year.
Fuel guitarist Carl Bell tells LAUNCH that their success is a far cry from the simplest goals of their early days. “I think at that time, we put the first record out, we were just, you know, ‘It’s a major record, we’re on a major record deal,’ and it was all cool, you know? After that it was just gravy, I guess, you know what I mean? We always said, ‘We just want to work long enough to where we can get our own roadies.’ We finally got our own roadies, so we were happy at that point.”
Spurred by singles “Hemorrhage (In My Hands)” and “Bad Day,” Something Like Human looks to be hanging around a while longer. The album currently remains in the upper half of the Billboard 200, at Number 58.
Fuel kicks off a headlining tour October 18 in Mansfield, Pennsylvania. Saliva and Breaking Point serve as the opening acts through November 9, while Sevendust and Nonpoint take over for the next seven dates.
