Bournemouth based punk band Escapefrom’98 have recorded a special Christmas single “Welcome to our Punk Rock Christmas”.

The original concept was set up by Dan at Punkalicious Records who got 9 bands, including fellow Bournemouth punk pop band “Pump Action Radio”, to each record a special Christmas cover version,bundled them onto a compilation and is selling with all profits going to Youth Music the album can be purchased here.

The band are currently busy writing new material and are planning on releasing 3 singles simultaneously in 2013 which will be available digitally and on CD, also they are planning one filming a music video for each one. The band have been slowing building up a live following with some great support slots with top bands “Random Hand”, “Orange”, and “King Tuts Revenge” as well as a headlining slot at this year’s Oxjam Fundraiser at On The Rocks in Bournemouth.
