Escape the Fate Want to Annihilate Their Fans

Play Halo 3 Against ETF and Download a New, Halo-inspired Track from This War Is Ours

In spite of their world tours and legions of screaming fans, Escape the Fate are much like other post-pubescent males: they like to spend their free time teaming up on Xbox Live, killing armies of alien invaders in Halo 3. So much, in fact, that the band has penned two songs about the game - "The Guillotine" from their hit debut Dying Is Your Latest Fashion and "This War Is Ours (The Guillotine Part II)" from their upcoming follow-up, This War Is Ours (in stores October 21st).

On October 2nd, the band is meeting their fans in multiplayer combat on Xbox Live as part of the "Game With Fame" series. From 5 to 7pm Pacific Standard Time (that's 8 - 10pm EST), the band will be meeting all challengers online on Xbox Live. Look for the gamertags EscapeFate GWF1 or EscapeFate GWF2. More information is available here.

In addition to being able to play their favorite band and their favorite game, Escape the Fate fans will be able to download both "The Guillotine" and the never-before-heard "This War Is Ours (The Guillotine Part II)" for free from the Xbox Marketplace.

The anticipation for Escape The Fate's new record has been furious. Earlier this month in a unique "social experiment," Escape The Fate challenged their fans to gather 50,000 people on their Buzznet page to unlock "The Flood," the first single off This War Is Ours. The response was so overwhelming, the social media giant's servers crashed for 10 minutes. This Wars Is Ours is in stores October 21st.
