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! Steven Reid, Fireworks Magazine

Fugitive 2023 sees us as a band, fresh and re-energised – the music we are making excites us more than ever before. We want to reach out and make new connections … Our catalogue of music is really quite diverse. Hard Melodic Rock is our centre of gravity but we don’t just play it safe with one formula, have many influences, and our breadth of life experiences colour the songs with our own personal touch and feel.

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, Rockwich Festival, SAVFest Festival to name a just a few.

Fugitive’s latest album ‘Nobody Gets Out Alive’ is out now which includes music written and produced with rock legend RUSS BALLARD…  He called us up and gave Rock and Roll to us! We’d like to pass on the honour and give it back to you all… if you’ll join us?

We’re bringing the new music on the road with a bunch of live dates for 2023 with our NOBODY GETS OUT ALIVE UK ALBUM TOUR. Check the LIVE page of the website for more info.
