Escape the Fate is the third studio album and major label debut by American rock band Escape the Fate, the second with vocalist Craig Mabbitt. It will be the band's first album released on Interscope Records following their departure from Epitaph. It will be released worldwide on November 2, 2010.[3][4][5]

Production and recording

In an interview during Warped Tour 2009, bassist Max Green stated that the album will feature a song co-written by Mick Mars of Mötley Crüe, who approached Escape The Fate to collaborate on some songs.[6] Max Green also confirmed through Formspring that there will be a song co-written by guitarist John 5 of Rob Zombie.

On April 23, vocalist Craig Mabbitt stated via Twitter, "off to vegas today to finish out last minute badass demos with monte, then off to bamboozle, then studio time", giving the notion that the band will begin recording their studio album directly after Bamboozle, and release it mid/late Summer 2010.[citation needed] Soon after, Mabbitt stated through his Twitter account that the band has a few more songs to record, and that the new album will be coming sooner than expected. He has also hinted towards there being a "Guillotine III: The Aftermath" track on the album,[7] which was later confirmed as true. Later, Mabbitt updated on his Twitter account that the band only has one song left to record.[8]

During early recording, Max Green was question on Formspring about the band possibly changing record labels. Max responded by saying that he will reveal all of that at a later time. This would make the record the first to be released without Epitaph Records.[Full citation needed] On July 26, Escape The Fate confirmed that the new record will be released through major record label, DGC/Interscope Records. In the same press release, they have listed Don Gilmore as the album's producer, who has worked with bands such as Linkin Park, Bullet For My Valentine, and Hollywood Undead. A November 2nd release date was also confirmed. Speaking about the album, Max Green commented, "This record is the cure for the modern day music epidemic, We are wiping the slate clean and re-writing rock music as you know it.”[9]

Release and Promotion

On August 23, Escape The Fate updated their Myspace homepage with a new logo and some information about the new album. The band's new logo is to be featured on the cover of the album. Mabbitt has also stated on his twitter that the band has shot a music video for a new song.[10] On August 28, the band released a new song called "Massacre" for download on their website,[11] the song was later confirmed as a pre-album single.[12] The next single, titled "Issues", was originally planned to be released on September 14 but was leaked early on KROQ Radio on September 9th.[13][14] To promote the album, Escape The Fate will take on a US and Canada tour prior to releasing it, touring with Bullet for My Valentine, Drive A and Black Tide.[15]

On September 27th the band revealed the album cover exclusively through Artist Direct. The cover contains the new "Escape The Fate" logo, as was previously shown on the singles "Massacre" and "Issues". Below the logo adorns the four band members profiles with scarred and mangled faces, all in front of a solid black backdrop.[16] On October 2nd, the track list was released. [17] On October 3rd, the band began playing the song Day of Wreckoning off the new album.[18]
