From Ashes to New is a rapcore/hard rock band that hails from Central Pennsylvania where such greats as Live, Fuel, Halestorm, and August Burns Red. Some might say there is something in the water, but From Ashes to New is an amalgamation of decades of experience in the local scene come together in what can only be described as a "super group" of bands past. Each member grew up in the local scene together playing their local bands to years later arrive together on this project which they believe is the pinnacle of the music aspirations they've been thriving for their whole lives.
From Ashes to New is a six piece band that is produced, recorded and engineered by Grant McFarland of Atrium Audio in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Grant, an accomplished musician and producer in his own right, is regarded to be the seventh member of the band. The band has received much critical acclaim in it's infancy via social media outlets and satellite radio prior to even dropping their newly released 5 song EP via CD Baby on iTunes and amazon.com. While some attempt to compare the sound of From Ashes to New to other existing bands, after listening to their songs from front to back one cannot claim that the band is like any other. The songwriting, melody composition, and complex drum/vocal rhythms of the songs speak for themselves with the lyrical content being nothing short of impressive.
From Ashes to New's message in all of their songs is that positive inspiration can be derived from all negativity no matter how harrowing life's obstacles may feel. In a genre where it feels negativity and despair seem to be in the forefront of most modern hard rock acts these days, From Ashes to New shines as one of few that stand out in that respect. With uplifting lyrics in the vein of self betterment, From Ashes to New looks to capture the attention of listeners from all walks of music.
