NewsFugitive NOT GUILTY Single / EP+ Release

Posted on Saturday, August 14 2021 @ 22:58:18 CDT by Steven Reid
General The new single ‘Not Guilty’ will be released on Friday 3rd September through all major download stores and streaming sites but unusually will also feature on a very limited edition signed, numbered CD of 200. The CD will take the form of an EP+ (plus). NOT GUILTY CDEP+ ORDER LINK

As a download it will released as a single track, but for those who prefer the CD it will be joined by some additional songs previously unavailable on CD. Two recent ingles, ‘Raised on Rock’ & ‘Back in Business’ are included PLUS three previous single edit tracks that differ from the versions available on ‘The Awakening’ album - namely ‘Slave To Love’, ‘Light It Up’ and ‘All Fired Up’. If that’s not enough we’ve also added 6 more tracks, three from each of the back catalogue albums ‘Black Planet’ and ‘In Transit’ from Michael and Ranko’s previous ‘Fugitive’ incarnations. Amazingly 2021 is the pair’s 30 thanniversary year as a song writing duo so the EP celebrates their longevity. The tag EP+ (plus) is now explained! It’s a single backed up by 11 amazing tracks to give existing fans something very special for their collection for the £5 price tag but gives new listeners the chance to get to know the breadth of music we have on offer. It’s no album - that will come later - but it is more than an EP.... And at £5.00 �" great value?

Fugitive 2021 is a new band emerging from the ashes of what 2020 dealt us - fresh and re-energised - the music we are making excites us more than ever before. With new drummer Pete in the ‘Engine Room’ our sound more than ever is hard to nail down. If you can pigeon hole us please feel free, we’d love to hear what you hear in our stuff. We want that connection with you all... but if you enjoy hard melodic rock then what we do is for you. Our catalogue of music flows from melodic ballad to funky rock vibe to hard and heavy rock and in places... ‘metal’. We don’t just play it safe with one formula, have many influences and our breadth of life experiences colour the songs with our own unique touch and feel.

Fugitive frontman Michael Angel said “Take a listen to Not Guilty and hear for yourself where we are going with this. What I love about music is that it has the power to connect with people on so many levels, and you can take your own meaning and power from every song, relating to your own life experiences. Music has the power to heal. Not Guilty seems quite a controversial subject to tackle, but takes a very real personal demon and lays it to rest. Whatever someone thinks they know about a situation is often not the whole truth. This for ms part of the story of my life. I hope it helps people with shared experiences."

Our goal as a band is to head out from Liverpool across the UK and beyond to meet you all out there celebrating life �" living today - now, here in the present. We might be slightly older than some, but we are ALIVE and kicking and we damn well want to rock!

New to Fugitive? Here’s a little of what’s been said about our current album ‘The Awakening’:

British Melodic Rock at its best... almost impossible not to hit replay as soon as the closing notes have faded into the distance... Look below the surface and there’s a burgeoning British Melodic Rock scene bubbling away nicely, ‘The Awakening’ might just be the rally call we need to take it over the top once more! - Steven Reid, Fireworks Magazine

Enjoyable rock to make you think back to when you didn’t have a care in the world and a Mortgage on your back. 8/10 - Steve Swift, Powerplay Rock and Metal Magazine

Looking to the future... Fugitive are back out playing live on their 2021 ROAD TRIP and are planning new music for an as yet untitled follow up album to cement all the new music together into one package, with a UK Headline Tour for 2022 in discussion - exciting times are ahead for us. That’s the message we want to get out, we want to share that with you all and create a bunch of exciting memories together.
