CORONET, ELEPHANT & CASTLE – OCTOBER 2ND
Recognised as one of the most exciting London bands of the summer – following the release of their emphatic debut album ‘Only Bodies’ in August – Escapists have been announced as headliners of Elefest 2014.
Escapists will be supported by indie funkers Movie and psych rock ‘n’ rollers Lois & The Love at the triumphant celebration of the best bands in South London for the 11thannual instalment of the festival on October 2nd at The Coronet, Elephant & Castle.
With a year that has already seen Escapists play sold out shows at London’s Borderline, Hoxton Square Bar & Kitchen, The Garage and The Lexington, the band have cemented themselves as one city’s most exciting and innovative live bands.
It’s a reputation that has followed them into the release of ‘Only Bodies’, the debut album that saw the band capture their dark pulsating indie rock in captivating full-length glory.
Previous ‘Only Bodies’ singles – ‘Eyes’, ‘Blood’ and ‘Breaking It Up’ – have collectively topped 350,000 Soundcloud plays upon their releases. With another single due to be announced shortly, Escapists are sure to continue as one of the hottest tips into 2015.
