“Remember Every Scar”, the new video from ESCAPE THE FATE, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band’s latest record, “Hate Me”, which was released last October via Eleven Seven Music.
“This new album is, without any question in my mind, the best thing that has ever borne the ESCAPE THE FATE name by a distance,”said frontman Craig Mabbitt. “Sonically we’ve always been a diverse band who have everything from ballads to really heavy songs — and our fans expect that — but I think on this album we’ve gone full force with it. The heaviest songs are the heaviest we’ve ever written, and the poppy songs are the poppiest we’ve ever done. We came to this kind of ‘Who cares what people think of us’realization this time around — we’re amplifying everything that we love about this band in all directions and it has been incredibly liberating.”
For “Hate Me”, ESCAPE THE FATE worked with Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson (PAPA ROACH, MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, MÖTÖRHEAD) who “pushed us incredibly hard to expand ideas beyond where we initially thought they could go,” said guitarist Thomas “TJ” Bell. “He’s a master at looking at a song and picking out the smallest details of what could be improved but doing so in a way which makes sense for the overall tone of the record.” “He challenged me more than anyone ever has in a studio environment,” concurs guitarist Kevin “Thrasher” Gruft). “From technique to tone he fine tuned everything we were doing and made sure we were giving 110%. I won’t lie, it was stressful at times but he is a great producer — you only need to look at his track record to see that!”
