Escape Velocity - Colors In The Atmosphere
Similar to Less Talk, More Records, Escape Velocity is a child of the skatepunkers.net community where everything began on a whim in summer 2012. Aaron who had played guitar in several punk bands in the St Louis, MO area recorded an instrumental track for a skatepunk project and posted it online, but had no luck finding a vocalist. Andrew, a long-time poster on Skatepunkers.net forum, liked Aaron’s work and sang vocal lines over the raw track, posting it for fun and expecting nothing to come of it.
But spurred on by positive feedback from the forum, Aaron, with the help of fellow St. Louis punk musician Bryce, finished work on four more tracks and asked Andrew to continue work on a five song EP. Although Andrew had never been a lead vocalist for a band, and had never met the other two, a shared background of favourite bands (such as No Use For A Name, Much The Same, Staring Back) allowed for instant musical chemistry.
After quick bursts of recording, and several months spent saving pennies, they released their EP “Colors in the Atmosphere” in August 2013 (1 year after the first contact and never meeting) in cooperation with Less Talk, More Records.
