Escape The Fate announce return of bassist and new guitarist

Escape The Fate welcomes back bassist Max Green into the band’s touring fold along with new guitarist Kevin Thrasher, substituting for Monte Money, who has decided to step away from life on the road for now. The two join singer Craig Mabbitt and drummer Robert Ortiz to fill out the group.

Green, who took the first half of 2011 to get healthy and recover from addiction says, “I’m feeling great and am glad to be back with my band. Escape The Fate is my life. This is where I belong.” Thrasher, who previously toured for years with Love Hate Hero, is excited to hit the road Escape The Fate. Although Money will still be a creative force in the band, Thrasher has taken over lead guitar touring duties. Known for his shredding, powerful playing, he is an enthralling addition.

Escape The Fate kicks off their new touring line-up on Saturday, August 20th in LA on the Sunset Strip Music Festival’s main stage alongside rock legends Mötley Crüe, then will ignite stages across North America on the main stage of the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival with Avenged Sevenfold before heading to the U.K. with Funeral For A Friend on October 23rd.

Escape The Fate was nominated for the “Best Album” Kerrang! Award 2011 for their self-titled album that debuted at #4 on the Billboard Rock album chart, #3 on the Billboard Alternative chart and #1 on the Billboard Tastemakers chart. Revolver proclaimed, “Escape The Fate made an album that treads the tightrope between good times and introspection, between rollicking rock, raging post-hardcore, and tender balladry,“ and Outburn declared “the band’s new album is a compelling modern day masterpiece.”
