Hailing from Las Vegas USA, Escape The Fate has been in the limelight ever since they won a radio contest judged by none other than My Chemical Romance back in 2005. The band had earned a spot on MCR’s tour with support from Alkaline Trio and Reggie and the Full Effect. Their victory in said competition earned them a growing fan base which subsequently led to a record deal with Epitaph Records. In 2010, the band left Epitaph to sign with major label Interscope and worked with Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Hollywood Undead, Bullet for My Valentine) on their self-titled album. They released another record with Universal imprint Eleven Seven Music and in late 2015, Escape the Fate's fifth album, Hate Me, was helmed by veteran producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Bon Jovi, Daughtry.)
“This new album is, without any question in my mind, the best thing that has ever borne the Escape The Fate name, by a distance,” enthuses frontman Craig Mabbitt with no hint of hesitation. A remarkable statement given the last two ETF records gatecrashed the Billboard top 30. “Sonically, we’ve always been a diverse band who have everything from ballads to really heavy songs - and our fans expect that - but I think on this album we’ve gone full force with it. The heaviest songs are the heaviest we’ve ever written, and the poppy songs are the poppiest we’ve ever done. We came to this kind of ‘who cares what people think of us’ realization this time around - we’re amplifying everything that we love about this band in all directions and it has been incredibly liberating.”
Now more than 10 years later with 5 studio albums under their belt, the band is making their way to our shores for the very first time.
