ABOUT ESCAPE THE FATE
While their previous, self-titled album found them taking their sound in a more muscular direction, Escape the Fate find their knack for melody again on their fourth album, Ungrateful. Though the album retains a lot of the heaviness of their last effort, there’s a soaring quality here that feels like the band is opening its sound up more, allowing the big moments to go in whatever direction is natural rather than trying to give everything a hard edge. With more room to stretch out, it definitely feels like Escape the Fate are moving into more familiar — and more comfortable — territories, making Ungrateful an album that feels like a return to form for the band. – Allmusic.com
Originally from Las Vegas, Escape The Fate features Craig Mabbitt, Robert Ortiz, TJ Bell and Max Green. The band’s fifth studio recording and first for Eleven Seven Music, Ungrateful, is an example of the foot-to-the-throat intensity combined with soaring choruses that has set the band apart from their contemporaries.
OUTBURN Magazine says of the album, “Ungrateful is a marauding alt-metal manifesto that establishes that Escape The Fate just might be entering their prime.”
The album was co-produced by John Feldman, Monte Money and Brandon Saller (Atreyu) and mixed by Josh Wilbur.
