Philadelphia, PA’s Alternative-Rock quartet, The Escape, released their new EP, The Mark We Leave Behind, which dropped today (July 28th). The new release is the band’s first EP since their 2013 release, New Direction. The Escape’s latest endeavour attempts to reach a whole new level of musicality with the addition of producer Vince Ratti (Circa Survive, Mewithoutyou, Zolof the Rock n Roll Destroyer) at the legendary Studio 4.
“Lyrically, we wanted to explore the concept of footprints.” says singer Stephen Angello. “Whether it’s the attitudes we adopt as a society, the impressions we make on others through our relationships, or the art we create, at heart is the question: “What is the mark we leave behind?”
In addition to the new album, The Escape has also released a new music video for their single, “Soon Forgotten,” off of The Mark We Leave Behind, directed by ShaunPaul Costello.
The Escape is a four-piece rock band hailing from Philadelphia, PA formed in 2010. More than just a name, The Escape is a sentiment that defines not only how the band sees music but how they make music. Music is an outlet, a stress reliever, a method of expression – their escape.
Following their 2013 release “New Direction,” the band has played up and down the East Coast and has been featured nationally on ESPN.com.
In December of 2014, the band hunkered down to record “The Mark We Leave Behind” with producer Vince Ratti (Circa Survive, Mewithoutyou, Zolof the Rock n Roll Destroyer) at the legendary Studio 4 and Vince’s own Skylight Studios. They set out to achieve a raw sound that will resonate with fans of Rise Against, Bayside, and the Foo Fighters. “The Mark We Leave Behind” EP, set to release on July 28th 2015, does just that.
