The disc produced four hit singles. The album’s third single and huge radio hit, “Boss’s Daughter”, was co-written by Mötley Crüe guitarist Mick Mars, and Mars also makes a guest appearance on the track. On this album cycle, the band has toured with the likes of Drowning Pool, Trust Company, Finger Eleven, Escape The Fate, 3 Doors Down, Puddle of Mudd and Theory of a Deadman. Last Summer, the band toured on the Trespass America Festival, then headed to Canada for a run with Black Label Society. The band recently released their third studio album, Onyx, on May 14. The album hit #39 on the Billboard Top 200, and the lead single, “Trenches”, recently gave the band their first #1 Mainstream Rock Radio hit.

Escape The Fate released their first effort with lead vocalist Craig Mabbitt in 2008, This War Is OursThe album hit #35 on the Billboard Top 200 and sold over 13,000 copies in it’s first week of sales.

Legendary guitarists Mick Mars of Mötley Crüe and John 5 of Rob Zombie each co-wrote a song on the album. In the summer of 2011, the band toured on the Rockstar Energy Drink Uproar Festival. That fall, the band secured a slot at the 48 Hours Festival in Las Vegas. In 2012, the band toured with Attack Attack! on the This World Is Ours Tour, and that same year they signed with Eleven Seven Music. In 2013, they released their fourth studio LP, Ungrateful, which landed at #27 on the Billboard Top 200.
