Escape The Fate singer Craig Mabbitt:

I’ll always remember 2010 for:

Escape The Fate getting signed to Interscope Records

Releasing our self-titled album on November 2nd, moving to LA, buying a Dodge Challenger and the movie The Imaginarium of Dr. Parnassus.

My “rock star moment” of the year was:

I'd have to say it was our show on October 1st in NYC at Roseland Ballroom when I jumped off a balcony into the crowd.

  • Escape The Fate released their self-titled album earlier this year, featuring the single “Issues.”

Finished our new record with Dan the Automator and toured with our friends Circa Survive.

When I look back on 2010, the things that will stick out will be:

Well I live in San Francisco and have been a Giants fan my whole life…World Champions.  And I personally went to Vietnam for the first time...incredible.

My “rock star moment” of the year was:

I can't think of one, because I'm not a rockstar or care about rockstars.

  • Dredg finished promoting their “The Pariah, The Parrot, The Delusion” album, and recently concluded work on a still untitled disc that’s expected in March.

Finishing our debut album and becoming an uncle!

on air!

Playing Crazy Girls in Hollywood!!

  • Echogram arrived earlier this year with their single, “Walk In The Sun.”

 

Some Hear Explosions’ Bay Dariz

I’ll always remember 2010 for:

We went on our first national tour and got to see the whole country. We met so many amazing people along the way and the whole tour was truly unforgettable. We also shot a music video for our song “Beep” where we were running around the wilderness with a group of our best friends drinking beer and shooting water guns at each other. Priceless memories.

When I look back on 2010, the things that will stick out will be:

The series finale of Lost was certainly an event for me.  The show debuted right as I moved to LA and it really felt like the end of an era.  I’m not ashamed to admit it made me cry.  Twice.  Darren Aronofsky’s brilliant new film Black Swan is easily my favorite film of the year.  It’s beautiful and haunting and absolutely riveting.

My “rock star moment” of the year was:

We stayed in a suite on the top floor of this amazing hotel in New York called the Eventi. We had just wrapped up the first leg of our tour with Lights Over Parisand this was cause for much celebration. We drank almost everything in our mini-bar, went to a club where a girl was standing on the next table playing violin along with the DJ, and everyone in our group was giving each other simulated lap dances. Afterwards we took a cab all the way down to the East Village so I could get late night pizza at Ray’s on St. Mark’s, the best pizza joint in America.

  • Some Hear Explosions are promoting their latest effort, “It’s Our Time Now.”
