Metal super group Fragile Mortals is making quite the “explosive” debut this holiday season.
The band, which consists of metal outfit Generation Kill and veteran rapper Darryl “DMC” McDaniels (Run DMC) and another metal super group of sorts called Generation Kill, is set to release its debut single ‘Fired Up’ Monday, July 4th. The song comes from the band’s upcoming debut album The Dark Project, which is currently scheduled to be released later this year. It will be released via Bumblefoot Records, the independent record label of Ron “Bumblefoot” Thal (Art of Anarchy, ex-Guns N’ Roses). Audiences can check out a trailer for the song online now here. About ‘Fired Up,’ DMC explained, “‘Fired Up’ is a foot-stomping, fist-in-your-face anthem, sort of like a MACK truck crashing into a packed football stadium.” He added about the song, “‘Fired Up’ is a sports-inspired attitude about giving all you got in this “game of life.” And like my verse says, you must do it without cheating!”
The release of ‘Fired Up’ will be followed up immediately the next day with the release of the album’s second single ‘Suicide.’ In discussing the song, DMC noted that the song is the polar opposite of ‘Fired Up.’ “‘Suicide’ is really personal to me because I was fighting depression so I know what individuals, young and old, go through,” he said. “People will always tell you that you shouldn’t feel the way you feel. Easier said the done! I discovered the first step to healing is be truthful to yourself about how you’re feeling, then look at WHO and WHAT circumstances are causing these feelings, then deal with those to remove those from your life. Me and [Rob] Dukes (Generation Kill, ex-Exodus) wrote these lyrics no holds barred because that’s how we, and a lot of others, felt.” ‘Suicide’ will also be featured in the audio version of DMC’s new book Ten Ways Not To Commit Suicide. It is set to be published worldwide Tuesday, July 5th.
Generation Kill is: Rob Dukes (ex-Exodus) and bassist Rob Moschetti (ex-Pro-Pain, MOD). Rob Thal also contributed guitar duties on a number of songs featured on Fragile Mortals’ debut album. More information on Fragile Mortals is available online now here.
