14 Songs, 45 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

Vegas band Escape the Fate’s sixth album is all about love—but these aren’t exactly love songs. Frontman Craig Mabbitt is tormented by pain and heartbreak: “The way that you love me feels like hate,” he wails on “Four Letter Word,” atop wild shredding and furious drums. He laments past mistakes on acoustic softie “If Only,” but those feelings are quickly shrouded by hedonism on album highlight “Empire.” For all its aggression, the choruses of I Am Human are amazingly catchy, influenced by pop as much as metalcore. It’s a perfect storm of power and melody.

Parental Advisory: Explicit Lyrics.

Thank you!

I was very sad to have the release date pushed back at first but hearing the songs now I am thankful. This album I have connected to so much especially in “Broken Heart” you guys have helped me over come so much the past couple years with remember every scar and breaking me down helped me realize the damage I was doing to my friends and my family from my alcohol addiction. Broken heart helped me come to the terms that the love of my life and best friend of 6 years didn’t love me as much as I loved him. Meeting you guys when you came to jub jubs last year was a dream come true please visit Reno again soon I would like to sing “purple dog” with Craig I was too excited meeting him to ask so maybe next time. You guys are awesome and you’re songs mean so much to me. Thank you for doing what you guys do. 💕 🤘
