Two of rock’s most talked about bands, Escape the Fate and Attack Attack!, are joining forces on a co-headliner, dubbed the This World Is Ours Tour. The trek, which features support from The Word Alive, Secrets and Mest, will kick off April 5th in Buffalo, NY and wind down on May 16th in Vancouver, BC.

Currently the best-selling band on Rise Records, Attack Attack! has toured non-stop over the past 4 years, bringing their insane live show to every corner of the world. Last summer found the band headlining the Vans Warped Tour, marking their 3rd time on the tour.  

Attack Attack!’s recently released third album, This Means War, landed at #11 on Billboard’s Top 200 Chart in its debut week, proving to critics and naysayers alike that the Ohio band is making an impact on music fans. AllMusic.com calls This Means War, “their hardest hitting and most coherent record to date.” Columbus Alive! describes the record as, “…the sound of Attack Attack! shaking off shackles. Somehow both heavier and poppier, more streamlined yet less boxed-in, it redefines them.” The Knoxville News Sentinel raves, “The death-metal, screamo, heavy-rock act rarely hits the brakes, with machine-gun guitar riffs and screeching vocals by Caleb Shomo swarming and suffocating the mix. There’s also old-fashioned punk fury racing through this polished, modern metal mayhem, and even traces of funk.” Underthegunreview.net says, “This Means War should be acknowledged as a fine album. It’s visceral, urgent, and compelling, powered by a passion and intensity so deep-rooted as to be tangible. (It) easily lives up to its name in ambition and scope – from the outset, it’s determined to set a radical, vociferous agenda and it pushes itself to hitherto unexplored heights. It’s excellently made and a testimony to the band’s growth...”

Escape The Fate are currently in the midst of recording a new album, their second with producer John Feldmann (The Used, D.R.U.G.S.). The Las Vegas quartet has toured relentlessly with everyone from Bullet For My Valentine to Hollywood Undead, and in the process has cultivated a diehard following cementing their status as one of hard rocks most intense live acts.

Nominated for a Kerrang! Music Award in the “Best Album” category, Revolver Magazine described the band’s most recent self-titled release as, “tread(ing) the tightrope between good times and introspection, between rollicking rock, raging post-hardcore, and tender balladry,“ and Outburn Magazine declared it, “a compelling modern day masterpiece.”
