ESCAPE THE FUTURE are headed back to Salisbury! This will be a party not to be missed. With support from The Bobonboboffs, Six Feet Above and Joe Mongan. What a line up!
Barely out of their teens, Escape The Future was formed in late 2016 by singer-songwriter and bassist Joe Wenman who was sick to
death of Saturday night talent shows and the constant stream of manufactured pop served up by the mainstream. Recruiting likeminded souls in the shape of Alfie Bowers and Bailey Havill, Escape The Future were born and have been steadily building an enthusiastic following since.
Joe lives for punk music and believes he can make a difference to people whom have gone through similar difficulties in life and to the music world itself. “I’m not gay; a lot of people think I’m gay. I have a girlfriend. She thinks I’m gay”.
Alfie is constantly bullied for his worst memory…vomiting all over the band van on his first ever gig with ETF. Particles of puke are still discovered occasionally and are donated to the local Boy Scout group to be used as fire starting fuel.
Bailey was sadly diagnosed with Tourette’s meaning that he regularly calls the other members ‘Prick’ or ‘Vagina’.
With a large range of inspiration from bands like Blink 182, Buzzcocks, Green Day and The Undertones, the three-piece mix inappropriate lyrics with heartfelt words that see them effortlessly move from deep love songs to tongue in cheek, to songs about mental illness, politics and having sex.
