Newcastle outfit The Escapades write uncompromising tracks that hit you right in the gullet yet leave you wanting more, which is lucky for you because on Friday 10th April they release their brand new single, Can’t Get Enough (Of Your Rock & Roll). It’s an all-out rock anthem with undertones of glam and notes of punk and was produced by Sam Grant of (PIgs x7) at Blank Studios.

As The Escapades have to wait until 22nd August for their next live show, which will hopefully take place at Think Tank?, Newcastle, we asked them to describe their anything goes dream show and the band didn’t disappoint.

Our dream show… Well…

The location would have to be the moon. because why not? Name? MOONSTOCK.

What is Moonstock you ask? You’re about to find out. 

Obviously, it’s on the moon, so how do you get there? Rocket ships. The first performers you’ll come across will be on said rocket ships, doing acoustic sets to warm you up for the main events. The bands playing these sets will include some of our local favourites: Many Moons, Paige Temperley, Great Waves, Sing Again Siren, Kieran Bowe, just to name a few.

On arrival to the moon, you will be greeted with a Moonstock goodie bag which includes a Moonstock T-shirt, glow stick, line up poster, stickers and a can of Dark Fruits. Naughty.

Moonstock will be known for having the coolest stage known to man. Performers will be strapped to the Inflatable stage while it floats about, bouncing off the surface of the moon. The crowd will also be bouncing around, as you’d imagine.

The line up will consist of artists such as Aerosmith, The Beatles, David Bowie, Queen, ZZ Top, The Struts, Muse, Biffy Clyro, Kelsy Karter and of course, The Escapades as main headliner. Duh. David Lee Roth and Alan Partridge will be the hosts of the festival, introducing each artist before they play. AHAAAA.

This would be the greatest festival in the universe, apart for the smell of cheese, because we all know, the Moon is made of cheese.
