Escape the Fate’s Craig Mabbitt Talks ‘One for the Money’ Video + Live Show
Escape the Fate put on top notch live shows and you need look no further than the band’s most recent video for ‘One for the Money‘ for proof. The clip has already spent time inside Noisecreep’s Battle Royale Video Countdown Top 10 and is a great representation of what an Escape the Fate show is like.
Frontman Craig Mabbitt told us, “It was definitely cool [putting that video together]. I just feel like in the past few years I’ve just gotten in the groove of getting up there and doing my performance, but I have to say, I remember playing those shows and I don’t remember the crowds looking like that.” He laughingly admits, “It was kind of cool seeing some of the cameras from the back because I thought the crowd really wasn’t that into it, but I guess they really were.”
Speaking about their live show, Mabbitt says, “I guess we’re always trying for more. That can be a blessing and a curse all at the same time. If you’re striving for more, you’re just going to always try harder so you don’t fall by the wayside.”
The vocalist says that the live performance is what makes it all worthwhile for him. Talking about what he feels onstage as the frontman, Mabbitt added, “It’s just amazing, man. It’s everything … I’ve always been a guy who wants music to be a family, cause that’s what music was to me growing up. That’s what made me want to be in a band … I don’t know, man. I just want everybody to have a good time. That’s the whole reason I got into music and that was my escape.”
Escape the Fate are currently finishing off 2013 with European dates, but will return to North America in January and February for the ‘Bury the Hatchet’ tour with Falling in Reverse. For their ‘Bury the Hatchet’ shows, click the button below.
