“A new chapter in The Getaway Plan’s fast-rising sonic saga.” – Big Cheese
“Their furious passion comes through in their lyrics and the intensity of their soaring melodies.” – Kerrang!
“Epic, densely-layered slabs of towering anthemia.” – Rock Sound
After two Top 20 albums, countless headline shows and numerous festivals in their homeland of Australia, Adelaide quintet The Getaway Plan are now building an international profile too. After the positive press which greeted the UK release of their second album ‘Requiem’ and their first tour on these shores as support to Pierce The Veil, they will now release the single ‘Phantoms’ on January 28th on Warner Bros. Records / UNFD.

Produced by the three-time Grammy winner David Bottrill (Muse, Tool, Stone Sour), ‘Phantoms’ offers a calling card for The Getaway Plan’s ambitious and anthemic alt-rock attack. When The Getaway Plan first previewed ‘Phantoms’ on their official site, their Facebook page gained 10,000 new followers in just a few days.

From the time The Getaway Plan released their debut EP in 2006, to their Big Day Out performance in 2009, the then barely post-teen band moved at lightning speed as their sound and fan base exploded, making them one of Australia’s most talked about upcoming bands. However, the rapid pace of this success took its toll on the young band and left the future of The Getaway Plan in doubt.
After going their separate ways for a period to focus on other musical endeavors, November 2010 saw the band – Matthew Wright (vocals, guitar, keyboards), Clint Owen Ellis (guitar), Dave Anderson (bass) and Aaron Barnett (drums) – announce their reformation live on Triple J. The break between albums enabled the band to take the sense and sound of The Getaway Plan to the next level.
