Unlike other bands who spend most of their time touring the county, sleeping at random truck stops and showering in rest stop bathrooms, The Escape, a Philadelphia-based rock band, took the past two years off from such luxuries to rediscover themselves. "We wanted a fresh outlook on what we loved most about being in a band: writing music." Putting aside their considerable catalog of music, they chose to wipe the slate clean and give their fans something that they've never heard from The Escape before. The songwriting is honest and true, the lyrics are genuine and sincere, and the band’s trademark heavy hitting, upbeat edge doesn’t miss a beat.
