Escape The Fate Accused Of Stealing Cover Art From Dead Letter Circus


Las Vegas rock band Escape The Fate were recently called out for allegedly stealing the art of another band. Artist Cameron Gray took to social media to call out the group yesterday, January 23rd, over the matter. The artwork in question was created by Gray for the 2010 Dead Letter Circus single “Cage“.

As voiced by Gray below, that artwork appears to have been modified to tease a forthcoming single titled “H8 Myself” from Escape The Fate. Furthermore, Gray alleges that Escape The Fate themselves had previously reached out to him about his artwork.

Notably, Escape The Fate appear to have pulled their own post in the wake of the controversy, though it still is currently available on the social media of their label Big Noise, as seen below.

“Disappointed to find out today of a large band that I’ve enjoyed and admired for years ripping off my art, especially after they approached me to enquire about my album art. I always keep these things private but this one stings quite a lot as it was artwork I created for Warner Bros and Dead Letter Circus who I have a deep love and respect for since they helped me become who I am today. And personally as I’ve gotten older I’ve become sick of protecting peoples shitty behaviour. Escape The Fate”
