About Escape Tonight......
With their intoxicating blend of precision punk and serpentine classic rock, the band has been compared to everyone from Hot Water Music and Foo Fighters to Bruce Springsteen and Glen Hansard. Florida-based indie rock outfit Escape Tonight is quickly shifting from the underground rock venues to one of the genre's premier commercial and acclaimed alternative rock acts.
Formed in St. Pete by singer/guitarist Russell Fama and bassist Rick Herbert, Escape Tonight self released its debut LP, Far From Home, with Grammy award winning producer Joe Quinde - best known for his work with Jay Z and Mary J. Blige. Recorded within three days, the 10-track album was noisy, hook-filled, and was generally well-received. Leading track "Heart from Bone" earned Honorable Mention in Randy Jackson's "Song of the Year" competition amongst 4,000,000 entries, and pop-punk track "A Million" was awarded best sing-a-long song by Rock Solid Pressure Radio in 2011.
