Escapist Records has officially signed Bay Area hardcore/punk band Love, Hope and Fear. The band previously released an EP on State of Grace Records and self-released a full-length last year. Escapist Records will release a four-song 7"/digital EP entitled Fate's Frowned on Us later this month.

The effort was recorded at Castle Ultimate Studios with Zach Ohren (Killing the Dream, Life Long Tragedy) and features original art from Curt Baer of Set it Straight. Those unfamiliar with the band can preview material from the band online here.

Finally, Love, Hope and Fear will be embarking on a full U.S. tour this Summer.
