Background[edit]

Work on Trial by Fire began a few months after the release of Yelawolf's second major label album Love Story, in the House of Blues studio in Nashville, Tennessee. Yelawolf produced the album in its entirety, and brought in a small group of musicians to commence work on the album, including his tour DJ, DJ Klever, guitarist Bones Owens, and keyboardist Peter Keys from Lynyrd Skynyrd.[3] The album has a noticeable country influence.[4]

The album's first single "Daylight" was released on September 23, 2016.[5] The album's second single "Shadows" featuring Joshua Hedley was released on October 28, 2016.[6] The third single "Row Your Boat" was released on June 2, 2017,[7] while the fourth single, "Punk" featuring Travis Barker and Juicy J, was released on September 1, 2017.[8]
