Escape The Fate go blind dating in fun ‘Do You Love Me?’ video



Escape The Fate go blind dating in their new video for ‘Do You Love Me?’, taken from their recent album I Am Human, which is out now via Eleven Seven. Stream HERE.

It’s jam-packed from the start with humour and tongue-in-cheek fun, as we witness the band in a spoof TV dating show. Presented by Robert as the eccentric host, four extravagant bachelors – rocker Ritchie Valentine, mathematics genius Walter Wayfeather, gym obsessive Bob Bailer and cowboy Cody Darkwood – all played by the band, are fighting to win the heart of love hopeful Destiny, who’s also played by frontman Craig.

“We had a lot of fun shooting this one and we hope you laugh as much watching it as we did making it”, says Craig, “oh yeah – and bang your fuckin’ head to the track and grab ‘I Am Human’ while you’re at it.”

The video comes just before Escape The Fate wrap up their UK and European headline tour, celebrating the 10th anniversary of their breakthrough album This War Is Ours. Performing the album in its entirety, they’ll be playing the final show of the run at London’s Electric Ballroom on February 20th.

This War Is Ours was their debut record with vocalist Craig Mabbitt, and marked the beginning of a long-standing and remarkable journey for the band that’s seen them loved across the world. The tour was a huge success in Australia in 2018, so the band were ecstatic to be able to bring the celebration to fans at 23 venues across the UK and Europe.

Last year, Escape the Fate released their sixth studio album, I Am Human. Produced by GRAMMY® Award-nominated producer Howard Benson [My Chemical Romance, Adam Lambert], this record sees an evolution of Escape The Fate’s sound which brings the band back to the excitement of their roots.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
