    hey folks,

    our good friend Kevin over at MP3Hugger.com has been kind enough to kick off the release of our album Loosely Based On Fiction by featuring opening track 'Kings Have Fallen' - download it at [url]http://mp3hugger.com/2008/09/escape-act-kings-are-fallen.html[/url]

    We're releasing all the tracks from the album through our online friends over the coming weeks, so please sign up to our mailing list for updates!

    hey folks... what better way to brighten your monday* than to check out our next tune 'Laid Open' released by Steven on the Key Notes blog!

    "It's a wonderful slice of indie pop which examines city life through the eyes of three Belfast boys."

    please check it out via http://www.escapeact.com

    also if you are about Belfast on Wednesday evening there'll be an Escape Act acoustic set at 7pm at Charlies Coffee Shop, Bradbury Place, its free in, and Patio Sounds and Cutaways will also be performing.

    thanks for listening :-)

    So far, I'm really, really impressed and can't wait to hear more.

    It's also a pretty cool idea to release the tunes through music blogs, but at the same time, I can't wait to get the whole thing on CD!

    and another, this time 'Everyone Got Shot' from The Devil Has The Best Tuna....

    http://besttuna.blogspot.com/2008/11/houdini-would-be-proud.html

    "They effortlessly straddle the jangling, punkish new wave of The Undertones and Stiff Little Fingers ('God Says', 'Laid Open' and 'Jupiter Storms') and the more melodic harmonies Irish Americana (Irishcana?) of The Thrills ('Broken Chin' and 'Sullied Behave For The Moon'). "

    Earlier this week Ed over at 17 Seconds kindly released the last of our tracks - Broken Chin, head on over to read his thoughts on the album…

    http://www17seconds.blogspot.com/2008/11/album-review-escape-act.html

    “Rather like the Strokes, here is a band who have realised that less is definitely more. Pure punky joy.”
