Escape the Fate announces new album, “I Am Human”; listen to single “Empire” now

Jeff Hahne/Getty ImagesEscape the Fate‘s next album has a title and a release date. The band’s sixth studio effort is called I Am Human, and will arrive February 16.

“We’re getting older, and we’re changing — so our music should change with us,” says frontman Craig Mabbitt. “At the same time, we rediscovered what made us who we are. I felt like I was 17 years old again. I haven’t been this excited to release something since I first joined the band and we put out [2008’s] This War Is Ours.”

Your first preview of I Am Human comes in the form of the single “Empire,” which guitarist Kevin Thrasher describes as a “party anthem with a dark undertone.” The track is available now for digital download, and is also streaming alongside a lyric video on YouTube.

Escape the Fate is currently touring the U.S. with I Prevail.
