Modern Day Escape

Album Review: Modern Day Escape - "Under the Gun"

Modern Day Escape is the black sheep of Standby Records' family, a wayward but still loving brother who treads a path ever so slightly different than their labelmates. All of the other children that comprise this "Rock and Roll 2.0" movement are caught between the two poles of emo-rock and heavy metal, while Modern Day Escape does not suffer from a similar crisis of identity and image.

Modern Day Escape: A Few Words with James Vegas

Fresh off the road after a tour with Wednesday 13 and Aiden, vocalist James Vegas of up and coming band Modern Day Escape took a few minutes' rest to talk about the new album, the band's rising star, and what it takes to live the rock and roll dream.
M. Drew: You're just about to wrap up a tour with Wednesday 13 and Aiden. How's it been out on the road? Have the crowds been good, and where were your favorite places to play?
James Vegas: The crowd's been very welcoming so far. It was a little slow to start but something happened when we hit Tempe, Arizona…all the crazy ass fans came out to play and we loved it. The crazier and more pumped the crowds are, the harder we rock. My favorite places to play are Denver, Colorado because it’s cheaper to get drunk out there cause of the altitude and Austin, Texas is fun, there’s lots of college kids there that wanna rage cage and Seattle, Washington because the coffee is delicious the fans are amazing and it’s so dreary cause of the weather…I feel like I’m in Gotham City or something and I wanna loom the streets and solve crimes and shit.
