Ruined Escape Plan
This level of commitment and dedication was proven when the band decided to relocate to Edmonton, Alberta due to the larger artists community and a more interactive music scene. The open embrace showed by the Edmonton crowd made it all the more easier for this band to welcome their new fans as they continue to rock the Edmonton stage.
In one sentence, how would you describe your band and what it stands for?
"Ruined Escape Plan is a four piece, insight-driven and musically propelled, rock experience."
What were your artistic ideas behind the making the video?
"In this video, we sought to reflect the lyrics, or an interpretation of the lyrics, that spoke of a person coming from a broken or relatively undesirable home life, and trying to find an escape. The outcome for the video's character may not be ideal, and decidedly pessimistic, but we felt that it contributed best to the feeling our video's interpretation of the music."
What inspired you all to do this cover?
"I once read that House of the Rising Sun was originally performed as a folk tale traditionally telling a woman's story before being largely popularized by the Animals. With a growing focus on the track, covered by Five Finger Death Punch, and a version being featured in the TV show Sons of Anarchy, we felt that it would be very powerful to feature the song performed by a female vocalist, and that this could present the song from a new perspective that could be appreciated."
"We always seek to create open-ended music that can have several interpretations to an attentive listener, while writing music that is emotionally captivating, so I hope listeners can find something in the instrumentation, the melodies, and the lyrics that they can connect with in a powerful, personal way, and enjoy."
