One band we wanted to make sure to see at Aftershock Festival was none other than Escape the Fate. They have been longtime favorites of ours and to see them perform at this year’s Aftershock was a true highlight. They conquered the 100+ temps and delivered the fans a powerful energetic set. They came right out and started off with my favorite track, You’re Insane. The crowd went wild and if you didn’t think they could get any louder, they did. Everyone was moving around and singing along when they played another favorite, Gorgeous Nightmare. Check out photos from the set by our Rockin Ryan here:

 

The setlist included the following:

  • You’re Insane
  • Gorgeous Nightmare
  • One For The Money
  • Ungrateful
  • Issues
  • The Aftermath (G3)

Escape the Fate will be heading out on tour in Europe with Glamour of the Kill and New Years Day. The tour starts on October 7th in Norwich, United KIngdom and ends on October 30th. Check the dates below and see if you will be lucky enough to catch a show with this awesome lineup.

We can’t wait for Escape the Fate to announce more US tour dates! So get ready for some more fun. Speaking of fun, check out a couple of my favorite shots from Escape the Fate when we caught them after their set at Aftershock doing some interviews.

The highly anticipated release of the new album, Shapeshifter by The Dead Rabbitts is set for tomorrow July 1st through Tragic Hero Records.  This is one album, you are going to want to pick up.  We were excited to catch them as they made their stop in San Francisco last week for the Shapeshift Tour! They treated us to several of their new songs which were just awesome.

IMG_0265

The album starts right off with the heavy and crowd favorite My Only Regret. I love it’s cinematic style intro and then transitions into a fierce heavy dose of vocals and then right into a catchy chorus. Nothing But a Reject is a bad ass track complete with emotionally driven lyrics and one of the highlights is the ethereal choir style harmony. Craig’s vocals are so versatile and he captivates you with his powerful voice.

Another great song is  Makes Me Believe it which features Caleb Shomo. The album is filled with savage doses of metalcore  as in Shapeshifter or Bats in the Belfry complete with infectious melodies, fierce hooks and always a catch chorus as in Deer in Headlights. As I mentioned before, what is really special about their music is, that it can’t be described as simply “metalcore” because The Dead Rabbitts have brought much more depth and layers to their music. Whether it be violins, keyboards, symphonic element, they are bringing a much needed facelift to metalcore. This album is the perfect demonstration of that. It is definitely a well written, superbly executed album.  You can check out the album here and take a listen to the songs before you pick it up tomorrow:

 

Another standout track is The Air I Breathe is You which has an ETF feel but still maintains the Dead Rabbitts ferociousness. The guitar and drums on that track are savagely insane and has you completely immersed in the desperation of the track. I love it lyrically, musically and the intensity it delivers.

Edge of Reality is my personal fave and has a very electronic induced vibe amid the passionate emotionally driven lyrics. I love the creativity that is brought into the song through layers and tones. Definitely my fave track and I was so excited when they performed it live last week on the Shapeshiftour.

The album ends with Black Cloud and it is another bold track with catchy chorus blended with passionate scream vocals. Once again Craig takes you on a musical journey that is definitely worthy of your attention. I hope you get a chance to pick it up tomorrow and crank it up loud with us!

You can catch The Dead Rabbitts who are touring now on the Shapeshiftour in support of their new album. Check the dates below and get yourself to a show. Check out our full coverage of their stop in San Francisco here.

The Dead Rabbitts made their stop in San Francisco last night for the Shapeshift Tour! We were glad to make it to the DNA Lounge after a relentless 2 and a half hour traffic stop ride from Santa Rosa. As soon as the music hit, all our troubles went away and we were instantly in a good mood. The night started off with great sets by NightMares, Myka Relocate and The Relapse Symphony. Make sure to stay tuned for our individual band coverage coming on each of them.

Then the time came for us to receive a savage dose of metalcore complete with infectious melodies, fierce hooks and always a catch chorus. The Dead Rabbitts hit the stage.  What is really special about their music is, that it can’t be described as simply “metalcore” because The Dead Rabbitts have brought much more depth and layers to their music. Whether it be violins, keyboards, symphonic element, they are bringing a much needed facelift to metalcore.

The charismatic personality of Craig Mabbitt truly shines through his music and not mention, he is quite the comedian. Craig’s vocals can evoke a range of emotions and can take you from powerful to subtle as he sings his emotionally driven lyrics. You really are held captive by his voice.  TJ Bell is a madman on the bass as he delivers his slamming basslines and treats us to his backing vocals. Alex unleashes his energy as he tears across the stage wielding his guitar and never missing a note. The drummer, (I think Rob? whom I believe is new or possibly filling in) did a fantastic job with his precision drumming.

It is awesome to see The Dead Rabbitts on tour performing, just in time for their new album Shapeshifter set to release on July 1st. They treated us to many new songs off the album, including my personal favorite, Edge of Reality and of course the intensely ferocious Bats in the Belfry.

The energy that these guys bring out are well deserving of your attention. This is a band who enjoy performing as much as I enjoyed watching them. They bleed out the passion through their music and raise the level of adrenaline in the room. They are not to be ignored and I urge you to catch them out on the Shapeshift Tour. Get ready to unleash the intense and addictive music of The Dead Rabbitts.
