ESCAPE THE FUTURE
NEW SINGLE: ‘SOUTH COAST ROAD’
DEBUT EP – ‘BIRTHDAY SUIT’
CYBER NOMAD RECORDS – OUT NOW
Southampton pop-punks, Escape The Future, tipped as ‘Ones to watch in 2017’ by Louder Than War and picking up airplay from John Kennedy, are set to release a new single from their debut EP on Cyber Nomad Records to coincide with the announcement of new live dates.
‘South Coast Road’ is the follow up to the recent ‘Sorry Mum& Dad For Being Too Punk Rock’ single and is a reflective and beautiful love song that finds the young band at their most tender and heartfelt.
The ‘Birthday Suit’ EP was recorded near Salisbury with producer Anthony Clark and then mastered with John Davis at Metropolis Studios, features four brilliant new tracks and is a joyous and infectious statement of intent.
EP Track Listing:
01 ‘Birthday Suit’
02 ‘Drunk & Broke’
03 ‘South Coast Road’
04 ‘Sorry Mum & Dad For Being Too Punk Rock’
Barely out of their teens, the band were formed last year by singer-songwriter and guitarist Joe Wenman who was sick to death of Saturday night talent shows and the constant stream of manufactured pop served up by the mainstream. Recruiting like minded souls in the shape of Christopher Judd (Bass), Bailey Havill (Drums) and Alfie Bowers (Guitar), Escape The Future were born and have been steadily building an enthusiastic following of similarly disaffected youth at sold out local shows around the South Coast.
Influenced by the songwriting of Blink 182, Green Day, Sum 41 and Boxcar Racer and inspired by the music of Arctic Monkeys, Billy Bragg, Sex Pistols and Madness, the new four-piece mix inappropriate lyrics with heartfelt words that see them effortlessly move from deep love songs, to tongue in cheek, to songs about mental illness and politics.
Their fresh take and modern twist on punk and new wave sometimes recalls the energy of The Undertones and Buzzcocks, but they really sound like nothing else around right now and are set to launch into your lives – kicking and screaming!
Escape The Future will play the following live shows over the next few months, more dates will be announced soon.
