"Sneak peak..."

Escape Fails are a few short weeks away from releasing their debut CD...and BelfastMetalheadsreunited caught a sneak preview of one of the tracks, In the Arms of a Storm.

Keeping the well honed EF sound from the live sets, the tracks delves into EF's influences of hardcore and screamo, but this time with a clear nod to the likes of 36 Crazyfists and Killswitch Engage. The riffing is intense and vocals this time explore a wider range of both screams and clean contrast.

If this is a portant as to the rest of the album, roll on July 18th and the launch...(which regular readers will know takes place at Zavvi, Victoria Square). - J Traynor -


No official releases as such, just what we have on MySpace and whatever we burn onto CD for friends or fans alike



Although the majority of the band had been playing together for a good few years under a different name, they had just recently lost their vocalist. After meeting up with Ryan Adair at the Download Festival, beers were drunk and banter was had. We invited Ryan to try out, and it just clicked and things rapidly started to move forward again. There was a new direction, and so a new name was needed to reflect that. Thus, Escape Fails was born. A few months later we had our first gig, in what was to become our second home, and the metal capital of Northern Ireland, Warrenpoint!! Ever since then, apart from final years at University, broken arms and other mishaps, Escape Fails are writing new material and gigging as much as they can. Just recently back from an Irish tour, EF are soon off again around Ireland, and then off to Norway!!

There is a diverse amount of influence within the band; Ryan loves the post-hardcore screamo, Tim loves the southern rock, Steve likes weird stuff, Marc loves it all, and Paul, yeah we'll just stop there ;)
