Interview with Max Green of Escape the Fate


Steal the Spotlight: How did Escape The Fate form?


Max: I had a vision and I was sick and tired of all these shitty bands in Vegas. I didn’t like the scene there and where music was going and I wanted to do something different. I held auditions and I wanted a certain style and image. I picked out each member individually and played with them for a little bit and if I didn’t like them I moved on. I literally called the best players in Vegas and picked the best players for Escape The Fate.

STS: How pumped are you for the new album coming out on November 2nd?


Max: I’m extremely excited because I feel like this album is like my original vision come to life. This album is my vision come to life:  it describes what I wanted from the very beginning so I’m fuckin’ stoked on life.

STS: What big plans surrounding the release of it?


Max: We have a headlining tour planned and we’re also doing in-store signing events at Zia Records in Vegas since that’s where we’re from and we’re also dropping a music video for our new single “Issues” which is gonna be awesome.

STS: What can we expect from the rest of the album?  We’ve heard “Massacre” and “Issues,” so can we imagine only more greatness?

Max: The album takes you on a roller coaster.  It flows greatly, brings you down into a deep dark hole, but also pumps you up, makes you feel things, just brings emotion out of you.

STS: How are you enjoying the tour with Bullet For My Valentine?

Max: It’s going great and all the bands are getting along.  We got to hang out with Bullet For My Valentine a few times - they’re nice and respectful and we’ve learned a lot about being professional and still having fun.  That’s the truth and it’s rad.


STS: What touring plans does Escape The Fate have after this run?

Max: We’re gonna go to Europe with Bullet, we’re playing a show in Vegas for our album release and planning a headlining tour to support the new album. We’re also going on a press tour where we go to radio stations that have been nice and supported our new single and just talk to everyone and have a good time.


STS: What’s in your CD player or iPod right now?

Max: The new Ozzie record.


STS: What bands melted you face off during your youth?

Max: NIN, Marilyn Manson, Metallica, Nirvana.


STS: If you can share the stage with anyone ever….who would it be and why?

Max: Rx Bandits, Nirvana, Marilyn Manson during Mechanical Animals or The Golden Age of Grotesque era.


STS: Do you have any favorite things to do while here in Cleveland?

Max: I like to go to Gold Star and get chili dogs.


STS: What were you doing before you sat down for this?


Max: I was at GameStop and I was walking back in the rain.
