Hailing from Norwich, UK, The Art Of Escaping is a hard rock/metal quartet – consisting of Justin Brand (lead vocals/guitar), Mark Warren (rhythm guitar), Ben Gallacher (bass), and Nick Barker (drums) – that came together as recently as early 2014. In that short time they’ve been hard at work writing and rehearsing the songs that would make it onto their powerful debut EP, Three Ways.

With the goal of setting themselves apart from the crowd, they’ve crafted music that’s heavy, but with a strong melodic edge. Their EP was met with a solid reception and as such The Art Of Escaping have forged onward, working tirelessly on both their sound and new music which will become their debut album, due in 2015. Check out a free download of their track “Catch Me If You Can.”
