Escape the Fate to continue US Takeover with Summer Tour!

In support of their new and chart soaring album, Ungrateful, Pearl artist, Robert Ortiz and Escape the Fate will be hitting the road this summer to bring their hardcore live show and hit-heavy set to their massive home country fans in the United States.  The tour, which stands as a co-headlining run alongside Hollywood Undead, kicks off on July 6th at The Fillmore in Detroit, MI, and will spend the remaining month making its way around the US before the tour’s final stop at the House of Blues on the legendary Sunset Strip of Hollywood, CA.  As previously mentioned, Escape the Fate will be campaigning in support of their latest studio album, Ungrateful, which was released last month, and hosts the charting singles “Ungrateful”, and “You’re Insane”.  Ungrateful, the album, debuted at the No. 2 position on the US Top Hard Rock Albums, No. 5 on the US Top Independent Albums, No. 6 on the US Top Alternative Albums, and has invaded the Top 10 on countless other US and International music charts all within its first week of sales.  A full list of dates for Escape the Fate’s summer trek can be found below.

Pearl artist and Escape the Fate drummer, Robert Ortiz, has dazzled and amazed his way into the ranks of one of today’s most recognizable rock drummers, with a live show of stick flipping, snare smashing, and drum-set-standing acrobatics that constantly whip the mass of faithful fans into a highly entertained frenzy.  Since becoming a member of the Pearl Drums Artist Roster back in 2010, Robert has relied on his custom Masters MCX drums, complete in a custom Arctic White finish.  Given Escape the Fate’s heavier sound, Robert relies on the 6-ply, all-maple shells of the Masters MCX series to emit the deep and mid-range tones that are essential to the band’s overall rock mix.  Robert’s full specs are as follow:

Masters MCX:
Arctic White (109)

22x18 bass drum x2
12x9 tom
13x10 tom
16x16 floor tom
18x16 floor tom
14x6.5 Masters MCX snare drum
