Escape The Fate don't fear the hate

Escape The Fate’s fifth album will be released in October ahead of a 2016 European tour.

The Las Vegas band will issue Hate Me on October 30 and they’ve released the tracklist and sleeve art. Their European tour kicks off in Manchester on January 28.

Singer Craig Mabbitt says: “Lyrically, a lot of these tracks are based around the hate we’ve received over the years and just embracing that and using it to our own advantage.

“I’ve had to step up to the plate lately, for the fans as much as anything else, because they take the name Escape The Fate very seriously and I owe them something for that, for all the support they’ve shown us over the years.

“It’s very humbling for me to be able to listen to this collection of songs and think about where we’ve come from and what we’ve been through to get to this point.”

The album’s lead track Just A Memory can be streamed below. It’s being given away for free at the band’s website for a short period.
