Those super happy people from Bournemouth’s most fun Punk/pop band Escapefrom’98 have just released a new single called ‘Staying Home’ which has a highly inappropriate title as the band are virtually never home as the are always out gigging.

This single is the first in a batch of new material that the band have been recently previewing live and intend to release of the coming months. The single is a fast paced uplifting piece with some furiously consistent drumming coupled with frantic twin guitar work that hits the target right in the centre. The bands very enthusiastic approach to everything they do is very refreshing, to see one of their live shows sends each member of the audience away with great tunes in their heads and smiles on their faces.


The band recently “headlined” the main stage at the O2 Academy in Bournemouth at this years Bandalism event putting on a stellar show gaining a whole host of new followers. The single can be purchased for the tiny sum of just 99p from their
bandcamp page. Escapefrom’98 are adding new shows all the time so keep an eye on their Facebook page for new announcements…….
