The Safety Fire

The Safety Fire


The Safety Fire from London, England is a progressive metal band with unmatched talents and personality to suit. Whether they are on stage or in general conversation the energetic five-piece are sure to steal the show. They are not one to be missed!


Formed in London, The Safety Fire has always pushed the boundaries of technical, progressive metal since their inception. With their expansive atmospheres and soaring melodies, it’s easy to see why vocalist Sean McWeeney, bassist Lori Peri, drummer Calvin Smith, and guitarists Derya Nagle and Joaquin Ardiles are now at the forefront of their ever-growing genre.

The Safety Fire have made a name for themselves with the releases of their critically acclaimed EP "Sections" in 2009, their 2012 debut album “Grind The Ocean” and the 2013 follow up “Mouth of Swords”.

Their reputation as a powerfully energetic live band has been seen throughout the world having toured the US and Europe with bands such as Between The Buried and Me, Periphery, Protest The Hero, and Gojira to name a few. The Safety Fire also appeared at the renowned Sonisphere Festival in 2011 alongside Metallica, Slipknot, Mastodon, and The Mars Volta, proving to the metal community that they can hold their own amongst the likes of such music legends.

Their efforts have been recognised not only by their musical peers, but also by members of the press, who have hailed The Safety Fire as a fresh sound in their scene. When searching for a record label, it seemed only natural for these progressive newcomers to find their home with InsideOut Music. With a roster of artists that includes Devin Townsend, James Labrie, and King’s X, The Safety Fire will gain recognition and exposure far beyond the dreams they had as childhood friends.

"We all grew up together and would head over to Calvin's place and jam in his living-room after school, practically learning our instruments along the way. It took a few years and few different bands before The Safety Fire became what it is today. To be able to release our music worldwide with a label like InsideOut Music is a dream come true. We are all massively excited and can't wait to get our music out there across the whole world!"
