Escape The Fate have debuted their new song “Walk On” on Friday, August 28.
The anthemic new track showcases the band’s signature sound with catchy vocal melodies, exceptional guitars riffs and driving drums.
“Lyrically the new single is a message of positivity,” says Craig Mabbitt. “‘Walk On’ is a song about recovery, about not giving up when things seem impossible to overcome, it’s always darkest before the dawn and you just need to hold on until the sun rises. Walk on.”
The music video for the new song is footage from previous Escape The Fate live performance due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, along with clips from the upcoming movie, Sno Babies. The movie will bring a message that mirrors the same of the tracks, portraying how easy it is to fall into a pattern of substance use.
The band understands what it means to be broken, from childhood trauma, to the tumultuousness of the music biz, and they know how music can heal. It’s still about a good time, but with a deeper meaning, the kind that empowers listeners to overcome all obstacles. It may be the same lineup, but it’s a brand-new Escape The Fate.
The track was produced by producer, John Feldmann (5 Seconds Of Summer, The Used) and their own guitarist, Thrasher, who has been producing, working with the likes of Travis Barker and Machine Gun Kelly, the new album delivers an arsenal of driving bangers and melodic ballads that are among the best of the hard rock world. Feldmann explains “It was awesome working again with Escape The Fate! Craig is family and incredible in the studio and Thrasher… What a talent! Him coproducing this song with me was a real treat and a real joy…”
“Walk On” is set to appear in the upcoming Better Noise Films’ movie, Sno Babies. The song marks the band’s first new music since the release of their 2018 album, I Am Human, and will appear on their upcoming new album in 2021.
