In 1984, Fastway recorded again with Eddie Kramer their next album, with the former Taste bassist Charlie McCracken (his only contribution to the band). A music video for the title-track, was released and it soon received distribution through various TV channels like MTV and VH1. The sound of the LP is more blues-based than their previous album and ended up with more melodic elements. All Fired Up had received good reviews, but failed to reach more success due to increasing popularity of glam metal in the charts that same year. To support the album, Fastway opened for Rush on their Grace Under Pressure tour.
After the hardships of touring, Shirley and McCracken left the band in 1985.
