Rocks Like: The Rocket Summer, Cartel, Jackâ€™s Mannequin
Check Out: Set The Night On Fire EP
The members of the Getaway have experienced some serious medical issues in their lives, from drummer Nate Staggsâ€™ 2006 leukemia diagnosis (heâ€™s now in remission) to guitarist Alex Wheatley being born blind (and beating the odds to gain back some eyesight). Perhaps thatâ€™s why the pop-rockers treasure the music they make. â€śWeâ€™re writing addicts and needed a support group,â€ť Wheatley says. â€śWe write music every chance we get, and once I found two people with the same addiction, it became pretty undeniable that we had to bring our ideas to fruition.â€ť Their new EP, Set The Night On Fire, is due in June.
