In August 2007, Scallions told to Alternative Addiction about a project he had been working on with an old Fuel band mate. "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. It’s very exciting for me; it’s a record I’ve dreamed of doing for a really long time."
The band name has not yet been revealed. "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."
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. 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. 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.
On March 2, 2010, Brett Scallions announced via the Fuelies Message Board that Re-Fueled plans to undertake a world tour. He also announced that Jeff Abercrombie would no longer be a part of the band, stating: "Jeff decided that touring was no longer anything that appealed to him. 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. The new Re-Fueled line-up will be touring under the name of "Fuel" starting in mid April.
On April 8, 2010, it was made official that Brett and the members of Re-Fueled had become the new incarnation of Fuel.
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).
The debut album titled Spreading My Wings was released by FrostByte Media Inc. on August 28, 2012.
The World Fire Brigade line-up consists of Scallions (vocals/guitar), Sean Danielsen (vocals/guitar), and Eddie Wohl (keyboards). Guest musicians on the album include former Candiria drummer Ken Schalk, Mike McCready (Pearl Jam), Rob Caggiano (Anthrax), and Andy Andersson (Fuel, Black Robot). Brad Stewart has been announced as the groups touring bassist. 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.<< Less Bio
