Escape The Hive’s debut album ‘This Is Gonna Sting’ to be released on September 15th
Phoenix, Arizona, USA based rockers Escape The Hive consisting of frontman Michael Beck (ex-Kings of Dust, ex-Red Dragon Cartel), bassist Paul Williams, drummer A.D. Adams (ex-Dirty Looks), guitarist James “Rooster” Olson and keyboardist Mike Vars will be releasing their debut album This Is Gonna Sting via Shock Records / Vanity Music Group on September 15, 2023.
Head First Entertainment‘s press release indicates (with slight edits):
“70s pomp rock meets 80s arena rock, not in an attempt to relive the past but as a way and means to push the genre further along as Phoenix, AZ’s Escape The Hive throw the likes of Foreigner, Deep Purple, Brian Howe era Bad Company and Night Ranger, throw them in a blender add some modern recording techniques and pop out their own unique brand of melodic hard rock, strong enough to rival today’s leading names in the genre.
This is Gonna Sting was recorded last year at Soundvision Studios in Phoenix and was produced by frontman Michael Thomas Beck, who knew exactly what he was going for sound wise with the record.
Escape The Hive – America’s new AOR heroes? Quite possibly.”
