Bio: 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.

“Stephen Angello’s compelling vocals glide over the punky straight-ahead rock of “Soon Forgotten,” an excellent opener to the EP that runs in the same vein as Rise Against. Some wicked guitar work and infectious “whoa-oh” background vocals close it out. “What happened to Us” stands out as it’s a little more laid back; slowing down in the verses, kicking up a bit in the chorus. This dynamic gives the song a really cool vibe that maybe makes it even more radio-ready than some of the others. The chunky bass in the rockier “Underwater” is one of many aspects that make it a favourite of mine. This track is all around a fun listen that hints at Jimmy Ea punchy song that I keep coming back to. Whether it’s driving bass in “Two Steps Forward,” attitude in the guitars of “Living in a Dream” (another personal favorite), or the delicious soloing in “Waiting,” The Escape are musically intriguing and Angello’s vocals are consistently top-notch.”
