Escape The Paradigm was formed in late 2013 by brothers Brandon Brodzinski and Johnathan Rockwood with Donny Hoover III. The trio met shortly after previous bands each member were in went on permanent hiatus. Each member of ETP brings their own unique sound to the band, as well as experience that proved to be critical to the band's longevity.
Having plenty of live performance and studio experience, together and previously, ETP has become a truly polished sounding band, despite only having 3 members. ETP has been working for most of the last year and a half perfecting their debut CD. The trio managed to enlist the help of Evan Dunn of Alaya, who has managed to capture the true sound of ETP in 2017. Alex Zarek was tasked with helping the band create a hard-hitting music video, and managed to do just that. The trio has released a brand new music video, "Mistaken" which is the title track of their first album.
The band would go on to secure management through Xeonlive Management and hit the road in support of GEARS, TOOTHGRINDER, and All That Remains in fall 2018.
The band would then take a brief hiatus, as frontman Brandon Brodzinski made the decision to enlist in the Army Reserves. With his training complete in June 2019, Brandon would return home and reunite with the band. The band has plans to release a new album early 2021. The release was delayed in major part to the COVID-19 Pandemic, but the band has found a way to persevere with the release of "New Beginnings" this past August and most recently "RISE" this December, which is gaining momentum fast.
