Recently premiering at Arrow Video FrightFest 2021, THE RETALIATORS received critical acclaim, with The Hollywood News writing, “‘The Retaliators’ is a rock song birthed onto screen and is sure to be a hit with fans of music and horror alike.” In their review, Film Combat Syndicate called the film “a pliable, introspective macabre revenge thriller – one that dares you to look yourself in the mirror and accept who you are.” The soundtrack’s epic line-up includes music from Mötley Crüe, Five Finger Death Punch, Papa Roach, Bad Wolves, Cory Marks, The HU, and more. Mabbitt also makes an onscreen appearance during the film.

ABOUT ESCAPE THE FATE:
Escape the Fate are one of the boldest rock bands of the 21st century. Having spent the past decade-plus of existence doling out memorable rock n’ roll and hooks, the band have moved packed crowds at major international and radio festivals —everything from Rock on the Range to Graspop to Rock am Ring — to the legendary Vans Warped Tour, and while on the road with Five Finger Death Punch, Avenged Sevenfold, Godsmack, Papa Roach, I Prevail, Bullet for My Valentine, Hollywood Undead, and more. Comprised of Craig Mabbitt (vocals), Kevin “Thrasher” Gruft (guitars), TJ Bell (bass), and Robert Ortiz (drums), their past has been defined by decadence, drama, and a retrograde “bad boy” image. They’ve evolved, grown, and, most importantly, grown up. They are going the distance — surviving and thriving in a scene that often cannibalizes its young and seeing their music take on a new, even more dynamic following in the streaming and digital era. With millions of listeners per month and an ever-growing social footprint – the band have received over 700 million combined lifetime streams and views with their music and videos and have over 5 million fans across social platforms.
The Las Vegas-bred group arrived in full force over ten years ago with their 2008 the breakout album, This War is Ours, leading to a major label deal and the rock crossover success of their self-titled sophomore project in 2010. Escape The Fate was produced by hitmaker Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Korn, Avril Lavigne) and hit No. 1 on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums and was the first of three ETF records to debut at No. 1 or No. 2 on said chart.Ungrateful (2013) boasts the roaring smash “You’re Insane.” 2015’s Hate Me is defined by singles like “Just a Memory” and “Remember Every Scar.” 2018’s I Am Human marked the band’s second collaboration with GRAMMY® Award-nominated producer Howard Benson (My Chemical Romance, Skillet, Seether) and added fan-favorites Empire” and “Do You Love Me” to the ETF songbook. And now they are ready for their next chapter.
Chemical Warfare, the band’s forthcoming, highly anticipated seventh studio album, slated for an April 2021 release, was produced with John Feldmann (Panic! At The Disco, 5 Seconds Of Summer, The Used) and co-produced by the band’s own Thrasher. It continues the showcase of the band’s unique skill of redefining genre and blending it with their signature hard rock sound, delivering an arsenal of driving bangers and melodic ballads. The critical acclaim of newly released singles with Blink-182’s Travis Barker and violinist Lindsey Stirling are a testament that Chemical Warfare is the sound of a band at their most powerful, most resilient, and most comfortable in their own skin.
