Phoenix, AZ melodic hard rockers, Escape The Hive have released the newest lyric video for the upcoming single ‘In Between’.
The track is from their forthcoming full length album, ‘This is Gonna Sting‘ and deals with social media. When vocalist Michael Thomas Beck hauntingly sings “These friends I’ve never known, but I know. And their endless faces” the point of the song becomes more clear.
With their roots firmly planted in 70s arena rock, along the lines of Foreigner, Deep Purple, Journey and the like, Escape The Hive has the material to sit alongside their new contemporaries in the “New Wave of Classic Rock” phenomenon that’s taking hold across the world. “We are definitely influenced by that era of rock, but a bit more first hand. That era of music actually formed who we are as people as well as the music we write,” says Beck.
Recorded at Phoenix’s Soundvision Studios, ‘This is Gonna Sting‘ was produced by frontman Michael Thomas Beck and shows the quintet expanding on those 70s arena rock influences with modern production values. The sonics of the record are a throwback to that sound. A very vintage approach. With soaring harmonies that are ingrained in that writing style with some of the flash and dynamics of the 80s.
