Escape Velocity Bio:

Escape Velocity began on a whim in 2012. Aaron Garcia had played guitar in several punk bands in the St Louis, MO area. In August 2012, Aaron began instrumental work for a skatepunk EP, and posted it online, with no luck finding a vocalist for the project.

Andrew Palmer, a long-time poster on Skatepunkers.net, liked Aaron's work and sang vocal lines over the raw tracks, posting it just for entertainment. Spurred on by positive feedback from the forum, Aaron, with the help of fellow St. Louis punk musician Bryce Hartley, finished work on 4 more tracks and asked Andrew to continue work on a 5 song EP.

Although Andrew had never been a lead vocalist for a band, and had never met the other two, a shared background of favorite bands (NUFAN, Much The Same, Staring Back) allowed for instant musical chemistry.

After quick bursts of recording, and several months spent saving pennies, they finally released their debut EP "Colors in the Atmosphere" in August 2013 (1 year after forming, and never meeting) on Less Talk, More Records.
