Surprising fans with a different directionor approach, Escape The Fate have unleashed a party anthem, “Empire”, from their upcoming sixth album ‘I Am Human’ to be released early next year.
Check out the lyric video below:
"We’re getting older, and we’re changing—so our music should change with us. At the same time, we rediscovered what made us who we are. I felt like I was 17-years-old again. I haven’t been this excited to release something since I first joined the band and we put out This War Is Ours,” says frontman Craig Mabbitt of the new (and apparently polarizing) song. He also took to his Instagram account to share that the upcoming album “has something for everyone” as it is “full of different vibes, sounds, lyrics, etc.”
