DGC/Interscope Records hard rockers Escape The Fate have just released Issues, the first single from their eagerly anticipated major label self-titled debut album.

The scorching track can be picked up at iTunes now while Escape The Fate hits stores on 11/2. The Las Vegas combo have also announced a special CD/limited edition t-shirt pre-order where fans get the opportunity to take a photo with the band at designated Hot Topic locations. Check out for more details.

The band's forthcoming third album was produced by Don Gilmore (Bullet For My Valentine, Linkin Park). Escape The Fate blends metal licks with pop melodies and soaring guitar solos with anthemic choruses into an epic sound only hinted at on the band's previous Epitaph Records issued discs: 2008's This War Is Ours and 2006's Dying Is Your Latest Fashion.

Known for their incendiary live shows embracing the raucous Sin City lifestyle, Escape The Fate hits the road this fall as direct support to Bullet For My Valentine.

    I love etf, but this sounds like a pretty poor linkin park sort of song, the mixing on it is horrible. Having heard massacre as well (pretty much a bad rip on bmth) i'm pretty worried about the new album. And ^ how are they in any way similar to avenged sevenfold? Dont really listen to Papa Roach so dont know about that.
    FearOfTheDuck is a moron. And has no technical knowledge of music, because if he did, he'd know that Avenged Sevenfold is the best modern metal band. You dont have to like them, but you can discredit their amazing abilities, especially those of The Rev. He was a drummer, singer, guitarist, and pianist as far as we know. ETF are in a different genre. But i'm guessing whats to blame for the massice shift in sound is them too worried about sounding like blessthefall.
