Ungrateful is a prime example of the foot-to-the-throat intensity combined with commanding songwriting and soaring choruses that has set Escape The Fate apart. They provided a powerful and moving video for the single that covers an important topic for them and illustrates brutally graphic stories touching on bullying and abuse. The hard hitting promo video for ‘Ungrateful’, the introductory single from the album of the same name by US underground hard rock kings Escape The Fate, has already attracted over 2 million views on Vevo and YouTube alone since going live in March. A prime example of the foot-to-the-throat intensity combined with commanding songwriting and soaring choruses that has set Escape The Fate apart, the song’s accompanying video is a powerful, moving and brutally graphic statement concerning bullying and abuse, an important topic for the band: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1a3_S-2dA_I

Following hot on its heels was ‘You’re Insane’, an insanely catchy song with another memorable if rather less intense video that has itself already racked up over 1 million plays since launching on Vevo and YouTube in early April.
