The Safety Fire Release Video For Acoustic Version Of “Wise Hands”

The Safety Fire have released the following video for a new acoustic reworking of their song “Wise Hands“. The band said of their motivation to go in this direction with the track:

“Growing up with bands like Soundgarden, Alice In Chains and Pearl Jam during the era of MTV-unplugged, we have always had a fondness for acoustic interpretations and versions of songs. This was something we just did for fun but were really happy with how it turned out. With the music being stripped back we felt the video was a fitting portrayal.”

A digital single version of the song is presently slated for December 16th. If you like what you hear the band have also teased that there might be more acoustic reworkings in the future.

Miss Fortune Frontman Speaks On Domestic Assault & Battery Charges

Miss Fortune frontman Mikey Sawyer has publicly commented on his arrest late last month for domestic assault & battery in Tulsa, OK. Those charges saw his group dropped by their label Sumerian Records and his bandmates initially stating at the time:

“We’d like to point out that the actions of one band member do not represent the actions and viewpoints of the entire band. Yes our singer Mikey is in jail, but no we DO NOT condone his actions. We DO NOT condone domestic abuse. If you’ve met anyone of us in person I’m sure you know we’re a cool bunch of dudes. Saying Miss Fortune condones domestic abuse is a lie, so stop saying it. Thank you.”

Sawyer has since set out to address the issue, painting a very different picture from what you would expect to have happened due to the charges. Along with his statement he provided legal documentation (also below,) which shows him as being exonerated of the charges. Sumerian Records for their part also addressed the resolution, offering:

“After receiving confirmed legal documentation, it has come to our attention that Mikey Sawyer of Miss Fortune was exonerated of domestic violence charges. We are happy to have received this news, and glad to know Mikey did not participate in such an ugly act.”

It was not directly specified if the band would be rejoining the label or not.
