Download Festival 2016: Escape The Fate Interview

11th June 2016 | Music

Graving the Maverick Stage on Saturday are Escape The Fate and that feels suited… because they are definitely Mavericks!

Escape The Fate are an American band from Las Vegas, Nevada. The band have had a rocky history, with drummer Robert Ortiz being the only founding member of the group, but they have also had a flourished past.

Their debut album ‘Dying Is Your Latest Fashion’ in 2006 and the 2008 follow-up ‘This War Is Ours’ were released through the legendary Epitaph records, before moving to Interscope Records in 2010 for a self-titled release.

Their latest album, ‘Hate Me’ was released in 2015 through an independent label to similar charting success as the past releases – charting on the Australian, Canadian and US charts.

Download Festival 2016: Avatar Interview

11th June 2016 | Music

Download Festival is known as one of the more… international… festivals – and Avatar definitely fit into that.

Hailing from Gothenburg, Sweden, the five-piece (who have had 11 other members in the past two) release music regularly, having released 6 studio albums in the past decade.

The latest is ‘Feathers & Flesh’, released this past May, has been highly rated and charted at #88 on the US Billboard 200. Somewhat strangely, the album is about an owl who goes to war against the world – but we’ll let the music talk for itself.
