Modern Day Escape

Formed in Orlando, FL. in the summer of 2006, “Modern Day Escape has an infectious sound and draws in the crowd regardless of what market they are playing.”-Shane Jay Hayes (Essential Media Group)

The band was originated when members nXe, and Shep traveled coast to coast, from California to Florida, to meet up with singer James Vegas. Though it almost all ended before even getting started, as Bass player Shep was forced to abandon his dreams and return home for personal reasons.

Forming the band “Avenging Addison”, JV and nXe continued to rise through the local music ranks. Going through multiple members trying to find the right line up, the boys continued searching for a group of guys with the same spark that they held. Carrying on with the path and heart of the group, they managed to scoop up current guitarist, Marti Rubels in 2007.

After getting together with Rubels, they decided to tear apart “Avenging Addison” and start from scratch. Without hesitating, they began working, even though they were still short a complete band. After what became an entire year spent hiding away from the music scene, writing and rewriting, everything seemed to come together in 2008.

When the time felt right, despite the fact MDE still lacked a final lineup; they began playing any show they could get a hold of. Through high energy performances where nothing is held back, the band began landing Florida’s most important venues within a month. Around this time, in a type of twist only found in books, one of the biggest and best surprises came with the return of Shep from California.

    @Element_X: But they are. Post-Hardcore is a subgenre of Punk.

    FuckTheAngels: How can you tell the sexual orientation of the entire band based on listening to their music?

    Какая интересная эволюция то у них. Предыдущий альбом - клоны Escape The Fate. Новый альбом - нечто среднее между Atreyu и Story Of The Year.
