SoCal melodic punks Victory Kid delivery driving, ska-laced rock on “Escape Our Fate”

LA ska/pop-punk outfit Victory Kid have released a new single.

“Escape Our Fate” is the latest showcase of Victory Kid’s frank, politically charged and perennially hooky pop-punk, with driving rock tones taking the latest track.

Drummer Carlo Ribaux explains: “A feeling of impending doom has shaped our entire generation. “Escape Our Fate” is an expression of our fears and hopes around the topics that concern us most.”

Ribaux continues: “It’s the second single off of our upcoming (as-of-yet untitled) record, and it is a call to arms against the forces that stand to benefit from the destruction of our planet. The track was recorded and produced by Mike Pepe (Taking Back Sunday) at Capitol Studios and Fab Factory in Los Angeles.”


Victory Kid balances the best of ska and melodic punk, with fans of Millencolin, Goldfinger and Masked Intruder all sure to be grabbed by the Los Angeles crew’s latest single “No Brakes”.

From protest anthems to high-energy hits about the SoCal lifestyle, Victory Kid have struck a fine balance of grit and approachability with their music. After breaking onto the scene with a trio of quickfire EP’s, produced by Allan Hessler (The Used, Avenged Sevenfold, Goldfinger) and subsequent 2021 LP, ‘Discernation’. Led by anthems such as “Tuck Frump”, “Stepping Out” and “My World”, Victory Kid marry the raucous and the reflective. The band saw a new level of success with hit single “Clownin”, which has been streamed over 2 million times.

Summer 2022 saw the band set off on their inaugural European Tour, sharing a bill with ska/punk mainstays Mad Caddies and The Bouncing Souls on a riotous set off shows in mainland Europe. The band continued to win over new fans with December 2022 single “No Brakes” featuring on hit video game Fortnite.

Armed with their attention grabbing new single, “Escape Our Fate”, Victory Kid return to mainland Europe this summer, with an appearance at SBAM Festival in Austria on June 4th. The band takes their place on a stacked Sunday, alongside Enter Shikari, Rancid, Bowling For Soup and many more.
