Throughout their career Escape The Fate have delivered a sound that is sonically diverse, piecing together metalcore, pop hooks and synth-infused ballads injected with 80’s sleaze, but with their sixth instalment, I Am Human, Escape the Fate are at their most raw, real, and relatable yet.
Produced by GRAMMY® Award-nominated super producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Adam Lambert), this record sees an evolution of Escape the Fate’s sound that brings the band back to the excitement of their roots.
“We’re getting older, and we’re changing—so our music should change with us,” singer Craig Mabbitt says, “At the same time, we rediscovered what made us who we are. I felt like I was 17-years-old again. I haven’t been this excited to release something since I first joined the band and we put out This War Is Ours.” The album will be released on February 16th, 2018 on Better Noise Records.
The recently released lead track ‘Empire’ is “their own party anthem with a dark undertone”, explains guitarist Kevin Thrasher. A thick bombastic riff and handclap rises from airy electronics as Craig croons, “One more time doing one more line, one more shot till we all ignite.” Soon, the groove snaps from a haunting pre-chorus into a chantable toast, “Cheers to the top, cheers to the middle, cheers to us all getting a little.”
