British Melodic Rock at its best… almost impossible not to hit replay as soon as the closing notes have faded into the distance… Look below the surface and there’s a burgeoning British Melodic Rock scene bubbling away nicely, ‘The Awakening’ might just be the rally call we need to take it over the top once more!

Fugitive 2021 is a changed band, a new band – fresh, energised – the music we are making excites us more than ever before – we trust that it’ll get you moving. It is what it is, so we invite you to come with us on our journey and check us out.  If you can pigeon hole us please feel free, we’d love to hear what you hear in our stuff. We want that connection with you all… but, as a guide … If you enjoy hard melodic rock then what we do is probably for you. Our goal is to head out from Liverpool across the UK and beyond to meet you all out there celebrating life – living today – now, here in the present. We might be older than some, but we are ALIVE and kicking and we damn well want to rock!

Likened by press to Dokken, Night Ranger, Whitesnake & Autograph, Fugitive released the acclaimed album ‘The Awakening’ (Amazon rock chart #10) in April 2019 and have since attacked the chart with multiple successful singles (reaching #5 twice). YOU CAN GET THIS ALBUM NOW FROM OUR WEB SHOP or even from Amazon and other major stores!

The 4-piece have enjoyed success on the UK’s live circuit both as a headline act and as guests to the likes of Blaze Bayley & Hand Of Dimes. They continue to be a popular festival band with their high energy and visually engaging show, having graced the likes of Hard Rock Hell AOR, Wildfire, Gravity Fest, HRH Ibiza, TMR RockFest to name a just a few.

Fugitive are now hard at work writing the follow up to ‘The Awakening’ with plans slightly delayed (somewhat!) by the COVID-19 Pandemic. Over the past 12 months we’ve fought hard to find ways to continue to create new music and have been successful in completing three new studio tracks to be released over the coming months.

The first single released from the new recordings is ‘RAISED ON ROCK’ – available from November 2020. The follow up  ‘BACK IN BUSINESS’ has gone out in June – look out for the new video too on our Facebook and Youtube pages AND the latest single and EP NOT GUILTY is OUT NOW!
