Fuser first rocked the NZ music scene in 2006 with the release of their self-titled debut album, Fuser. And they certainly fell firmly on their feet. It wasn’t long before heads in the music industry began to spin and take notice of this Auckland based atomic-rock ensemble.

Soon after the release of Fuser, two of the band’s songs were chosen for the NZ On Air funded programme, Off The Record, a show run by The Rock FM radio station. Through The Rock FM, Fuser was a recipient of the highly sought after Rock Scholarship. If all this wasn’t enough for a band in their first year, they also completed a Nationwide NZ tour, and as a huge bonus, had their song The Rules included on a compilation CD for UK magazine, Rocksound – an honour shared with other great Kiwi acts like The Have, Blindspott and Redline.

2007 saw the release of the NZ On Air funded video You Will Know, which received airplay on music channel C4. This was also the year Fuser began to mature as a live band. At their inception, though all individually experienced musicians, Fuser was purely a studio project and the guys had little live performance experience together. So what’s the best way to hone the art of the live show? Jump out of the pan and into the fire of course! The band gigged relentlessly as either headliners or as support for Deja Voodoo, The Tutts, Bleeders, Jordan Luck and Storm Large (from the TV show Rock Star Supernova) they also completed a nationwide tour supporting the Phil Rudd (AC/DC) produced Las Vegas all girl rock band Jaggedy Ann.

Things got even better for Fuser in 2008 with five of their songs chosen to feature in the Demon Energy Supercross TV show. Endorsements were also in play with Demon Energy drinks as well as Drummer Dave Morello securing a Full A-level International endorsement deal with Swiss based cymbal maker, Paiste.
