Escape the Fate is coming to the Engine Rooms in Southampton.
Don’t miss your chance to see the legendary band perform at one of Southampton’s best venues on the 9th of June at 6pm!
Quite a while has passed since their last big tour with New Years Day this autumn set to promote their fifth album ‘Hate Me’ which was helmed by veteran producer Howard Benson. Now Escape The Fate are back this summer with more surprises for their fans.
Escape the Fate is a post–hardcore band which was formed in 2005 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The band currently consists of Craig Mabbitt (vocal), Robert Ortiz (drums), TJ Bell (bass) and Kevin ‘Trasher’ Gruft (guitar). Escape the Fate has proven whole world and especially their loyal fanbase that the only thing that is consistent is change. The guys never fail to surprise and the changes included not only the ones among the members of the band, but also making major improvements in terms of their sound and creating more musical and style diversity. TJ Bell could be one of the best examples of how Escape The Fate changed with time- now, he swiftly incorporates both bass and rhythm sounds into the tracks. The addition of a rhythm guitar to their sound a couple years ago has really given them more depth compared to the earlier days of Escape The Fate.
I had one in a lifetime chance to see their show on the 16th February of this year in ‘Electric Ballroom’ in London. Craig Mabbitt’s (lead) was simply breathtaking and the overall shown has demonstrated a major level of connection between the band and the fans as well as how willing they were to deliver the best music experience.
I was a happy camper with a VIP upgrade pass which included getting premium merchandise and a chance to talk to the guys and make a small photoshoot together- and I won’t lie if I say that this experience was all-around amazing. The guys were extremely nice, down-to-earth and very fun- all the time we were in the backstage it was all jokes and high quality banter.
My unforgettable time in the backstage with Escape The Fate aside, the guys made a huge show for all of their fans and have demonstrated how outstanding as music and show professionals they are!
