ESCAPE THE FATE are headed back to Australia to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of their highly praised ‘This War Is Ours’. With ‘This War Is Ours’ ESCAPE THE FATE came into their own exuding a spirit of chaotic mischief with each song firing like a cannon of pure rock genius. For the first time ever Australian fans will be treated to hearing the album in its entirety. But that’s not all! Fans will also be treated to Greatest Hits set to top it all off.
Hailing from the world’s most outlandish city, Las Vegas ESCAPE THE FATE are also about to release their 6th Album ‘I Am Human’ and the upcoming chapters not only look brighter than those Vegas lights but are set to resolutely be their best yet.
And so, what we witness is a re-incarnated, reborn, rejuvenated ESCAPE THE FATE firing on all cylinders once more. The message from the ESCAPE THE FATE camp is louder and clearer than it has even been in the past: “We’re coming for everyone and we aren’t taking any prisoners,” concludes Craig Mabbitt. Brace Yourselves!
Also on board are Brisbane’s AWAKEN I AM. Anxiety and pain are not uncommon as a catalyst for great art, and AWAKEN I AM injected this uneasy mindset to create their recent album, Blind Love.
The sonically infectious and groundbreaking album captures a lush sound, painted in front of dual guitars complemented by frequent piano, strings, and airtight vocals with soaring harmonies. Is it possible to create art that is risky and eclectic, yet cohesive, intelligent and fluid at the same time? The answer is evident in AWAKEN I AM’s gorgeous, layered landscape of musical precision entitled Blind Love. AWAKEN I AM’s live show is impressive as well, erupting with energy, which was witnessed around the world on tours with Chiodos, The Devil Wears Prada, and Rufio, with headlining dates in Japan and an appearance at So What Festival in Dallas.
Also joining ESCAPE THE FATE and AWAKEN I AM are Brisbane based post-alternative rock outfit BETWEEN KINGS. BETWEEN KINGS play with an immediacy that has been missing from most modern rock. The band has developed a palette of songs that pour out of the speakers with emotional intensity and vitality.
Playing with a heartfelt resonance one minute, then mixing it with arena-rock balladry the next, the band triumphantly uses melodic elements making it irresistible for rock enthusiasts to throw up the horns, or even hit the dance floor. With the group quickly developing a bond over their desire to create infectious rhythms and powerful hooks they bring together the sound that is BETWEEN KINGS!
