Fragile Mortals Announces “Fired Up” Single Release

Fragile Mortals – the new band that combines hip-hop legend Darryl “DMC” McDaniels (Run DMC) with metal group Generation Kill featuring vocalist Rob Dukes (ex-Exodus) and bassist Rob Moschetti (ex-Pro-Pain, M.O.D.) – will release debut singe “Fired Up” on July 4th, followed by the single “Suicide” on July 5th via Bumblefoot Music.

Says DMC of the upcoming new track: “’Fired Up’ is a sports inspired attitude about giving all you got in this “game of life.” And like my verse says, you must do it without cheating!”

While the message of “Fired Up” is pretty straightforward, “Suicide” tackles darker topics, that according to DMC, hit closer to home: “’Suicide’ is really personal to me because I was fighting depression, so I know what individuals, young and old, go through. People will always tell you that you shouldn’t feel the way you feel. Easier said than done!”

DMC adds, “I discovered the first step to healing is be truthful to yourself about how you’re feeling, then look at WHO and WHAT circumstances are causing these feelings, then deal with those to remove those from your life. Me and Dukes wrote these lyrics no holds barred because that’s how we, and a lot of others felt.”
