Escape the Fate Drop Video for “Just a Memory”


Just a few days after the release of the lead single off of their new album, Escape the Fate has returned with the official music video for “Just a Memory.” The video finds the band making their way through the desert, fitting for a band created in Nevada, to some isolated area of the sand covered terrain. There, in the middle of the desert, there’s a metallic looking structure with some speakers with the words “HATE ME” printed on them. From there, they launch into the song.

Check out the music video for “Just a Memory” below.

Escape the Fate Drop “Just a Memory,” Announce New Album and Tour


Escape the Fate may have just come off the Vans Warped Tour a couple of weeks ago, but now the band is unveiling a slew of good news for their dedicated fan base.

Today (Aug. 18), the band announced that they will be releasing a new album this fall titled Hate Me. Originally meant to be announced today, news of the band’s new record was leaked on Monday (Aug. 17), but that did not stop the group from holding off until it was supposed to be revealed.

In honor of the new album announcement, the band has also premiered the lead single off of Hate Me, a track titled “Just a Memory.” Listen to the song below and if you are digging the track, the band is giving the song away for free for the next 48 hours.

When asked about the album title which in a way fits the band since a lot (and we mean a lot) of people hate them, frontman Craig Mabbitt admitted that the name was a nod at the hatred people have for them.

“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,” admitted Mabbitt.

“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.”

But standing up for their supportive fan base is not the only thing this record will stand for. According to Mabbitt, it will also be the beginning of a new era for the band.

“It’s the start of a new era for us,” adds Mabbitt. “We’re getting back on our feet, putting our middle finger up to the world and proving ourselves individually and collectively.”

In addition to the new album and lead single, Escape the Fate has also revealed they will be heading out on tour this fall n support of Hate Me. The tour will include support from A Skylit Drive, Sworn In, Sirens & Sailors, and Myka Relocate. Check out the full list of tour dates below.


Hate Me is set to be released on Oct. 30 through Eleven Seven Music.
