Even though he recorded bass tracks for the album, Scallions has stated that he will be playing rhythm guitar when the group goes on tour. On April 3, 2013, the following message was posted on the World Fire Brigade Facebook page: "Thanks to everyone that has discovered our music and has questions about touring and new music. Right now we're all too busy with our other bands to tour, but that doesn't mean it will never happen." The post goes on to invite fans to support the bands Fuel and Smile Empty Soul "on the road all year".

    Upon the announcement of further touring, it was also revealed that Scallions had obtained the rights to tour and record with the name Fuel going forward. Thus, on April 8, 2010 Scallions' incarnation would become the "official" Fuel as co-founder and guitarist Carl Bell left by "mutual agreement".
    More Details Hide Details Outside Re-Fueled, Scallions was busy with Sean Danielsen of Smile Empty Soul and producer Eddie Wohl, writing and recording an album under the name World Fire Brigade. "It's much heavier than anything I ever did with Fuel," Scallions said of World Fire Brigade's sound in August 2009. "We've done a lot of stuff in lower tones which is a first for me also, it's very deep, heavy, and even growly at times." He also said that the World Fire Brigade album was "almost three-quarters of the way complete, and planned to be released early next spring, fingers crossed". Two new tracks "Shot Down" and "Take Me Away" have been available on MySpace since March 2011. The album is currently available for streaming through Riptide Music website (under working title Weight of the World).
    On March 2, 2010, Brett Scallions announced via the Fuelies Message Board that Re-Fueled had made plans to tour more extensively and as a result, Jeff Abercrombie would no longer be a part of the band, stating: "Jeff decided that touring was no longer anything that appealed to him.
    More Details Hide Details Originally he was going to do this with me but later decided that he'd rather stay home and watch his kids. I wish him all the best." It was announced that Brad Stewart, (formerly of Shinedown) would replace Abercrombie.

    Age 37
    Their debut performance was a free event that took place on August 28, 2009 at the Tempe Marketplace, playing songs from the Sunburn and Something Like Human albums exclusively.
    More Details Hide Details Still without word from the official incarnation of Fuel and with Re-Fueled increasing its tour schedule, speculation surrounding the future for Fuel began to increase including some confusion on the part of vocalist Toryn Green. Green explained he had heard nothing from other members from the then-official line-up, but expressed his support for seeing Scallions back on stage singing classic Fuel songs. In a MySpace Blog, Green stated: "I'll see you at a show, with a beer in either hand!" Finally, On April 8, 2010, it was announced that Carl Bell and Brett Scallions had come to an agreement that would allow the Scallions-fronted entity the right to record and tour under the name Fuel, thereby becoming the new official incarnation of Fuel. Several new songs worked their way into Fuel's live sets between 2010 and 2013 beginning with a track titled "Headache", and in March 2012 it was announced that Fuel intended to release a new album, which would be the first Fuel contribution to include Scallions since 2003's Natural Selection. By the end of April 2013, tracking for the new album had been completed and the band (now signed to MegaForce Records) promised that a new single was soon to come.
    After months of speculation, the rumors were confirmed by Scallions in an interview with Alternative Addiction in August 2009. "Jeff and I have remained friends, he called me up a while back and we decided – let's go out and have fun because he and I haven't played together in a while.
    More Details Hide Details It just seemed like the timing was right." Scallions has also recruited former Buckcherry guitarist Yogi, and former Candiria drummer Ken Schalk to round out the line up. The band has put together a list of tour dates for the fall where they are expected to be playing all the classic Fuel songs, from the band's first three albums. It is still unknown if they plan to record an album or not.
    Towards the beginning of 2009, rumors began circulating that Scallions and Fuel bass player Jeff Abercrombie were planning a tour under the moniker, Re-Fueled.

  • 2007
    Age 35
    In August 2007, Scallions told to Alternative Addiction about a project he had been working on with an old Fuel bandmate. "Jonathan Mover who played drums on the first Fuel record, he and I are doing a record together where I am doing the bulk of the writing, I'll be singing it, and playing guitar, and I'll have some guest guitar players come in.
    More Details Hide Details It's very exciting for me; it's a record I've dreamed of doing for a really long time." Scallions continued, "We've got a few names in the hat right now, but I'm reluctant to say any of them right now because I wanna make sure that we have the name ready to go when it comes time to put it out." No other information on this project has since been given by Scallions or Mover and there is some speculation that this may have been a precursor to the later World Fire Brigade project. Brett Scallions contributed lead vocals to the charity single "Something to Believe", released by the band Hollow on iTunes via Koch Records on March 9, 2010.
    In March 2007, Scallions was selected as the singer for Riders on the Storm, a project featuring former The Doors members Robby Krieger and Ray Manzarek.
