Escape the Fate opened for Seether last night at the Rave in Milwaukee. They were just here in February headlining their own show playing the exact same set. We caught up with Robert Ortiz to talk about their headlining tour and their crazy South American fans before their show last time around.
The crowd was ready for Escape the Fate. Most of the fans arrived early because the Rave said the show was to start at 8pm. The show time was changed to 8:50pm and everyone waited. The fans became restless and started to chant for Escape the Fate a half hour before they were set to take the stage. Too bad that doesn’t really work.
When they guys hit the stage, not only were the fans ready to let out some steam, so were the guys. Their sound was amazing and they won over some of Seether’s fans in the crowd. Their stage presence was incredible and I really thought I was in for some cheesy label-made band. I guess I listened to too much of the Blabbermouth hype about Phil Labonte from All That Remains in essence dogging Escape the Fate for their “preferential treatment,” superior management, and getting better spots on tour. Yet, kudos to Escape the Fate for putting on an incredible rock show.
