Alternative post-hardcore band Execution Day just dropped their brand new single “Escape” which was co-written by Justin Deblieck (Ice Nine Kills).
“Escape” is modern and anthemic, but still holds onto the band’s metalcore roots.
Musically, “Escape” is a high energy rocker that transitions to an atmospheric verse layered with electronic elements, before kicking back into high gear with a mainstream rock radio-ready hook. Lyrically “Escape” tackles life in Quarantine: “The song is really about feeling dissociated from the world, and the people around you,” explains the band, “We wrote the song during covid Quarantine, and it really is about life right now, the world right now.” The track deals with the realities faced from a life in lockdown. “Being basically alone for all those months, you start to think, and let your mind run, and the feeling of dissociation, among other feelings and thoughts really start to overtake your headspace.”
