With a new label, new band members and new music ESCAPE THE FATE is all about evolution. With today’s release of the new single “H8 My Self” – the band’s first with BIG NOISE, the label run by longtime collaborator/producer John Feldmann – they have reached the next level.
Vocalist Craig Mabbitt, drummer Robert Ortiz, guitarist TJ Bell and newly minted member, bassist Erik Jensen welcome guitarist Matti Hoffman to fill in for Kevin ‘Thrasher’ Gruft as he explores the world of production full-time.
“H8 My Self” features the aggressive guitar attack emblematic of ESCAPE THE FATE’s work. Setting the rules of engagement in the war against the darkness inside, Mabbit is all of us, facing down negative influences. Set him against your demons and enjoy the music
