James Vegas, the vocalist for Modern Day Escape, spoke to Noisecreep just as their tour with Murderdolls and Aidan came to a close. He discussed the plans for their upcoming album, "Under the Gun", and how awesome their fans have been while on the road.
"It's been fucking awesome! The kids that have been coming out have been going nuts and killing it every night. They make it worth waking up every day. This tour has been so much fun in itself, not to mention the fact that we were out with two amazing bands who really know how to own the stage, and their fans have welcomed us with open arms."
Fans are probably wondering just how awesome this new chapter in the band's career will unfold when the new album arrives, how good will the record be? "Probably the greatest record to come out since Michael Jackson's 'Thriller.' But seriously. This record is just a kick ass, awesome, rock and roll album. Fit for the last year before we all explode in 2012!" He said, confidently.
This will be Modern Day Escape's follow up to 2009's "House of Rats" just after releasing their self-titled EP; fame has really rocked their world with so many changes chasing behind. "Things are different due to the change in the lineup. The fact that we have new members now --Mark Burn and Sandra Alva-- and they are both very big fans of classic rock like Marti, Shep and I. That being said, we wanted to bring a more rock and roll feel to this record and smash it into our brand of metal. I think we did a good job of making 'Metal & Roll' or 'Mock & Retal.'"
With all the excitement surrounding the new album due out March 27th, what about a new tour? Vegas said you can, "bet your sweet ass".
