Hey Fiends, we are back once more with another touring announcement and this one features the guys in From Ashes To New. Take a look and please do so from the comfort of your air-conditioned home or office since its brutally hot and humid out there. Well, it is in NYC at least which is where we hang our media hat. I made the mistake of heading out on some errands and I couldn’t wait to get back home.
The Press Release:
Today, From Ashes to New have announced headlining tour dates, adding to their extensive fall schedule. The 16-date headline run will feature support from Badflower, Dead Girls Academy, and Killakoi. Pre-sale tickets with VIP packages are available now at FATN.soundrink.com.
The story of From Ashes to New is truly that of pursuing a dream regardless of the obstacles that may arise. The band’s debut album Day One earned the band a Top 10 track at Active Rock radio with the single “Through It All”. Following an extensive album cycle, the band’s original drummer and co-vocalist both abruptly left the band. Rather than focusing on the setbacks, From Ashes to New forged ahead with a new energy and purpose. The Lancaster, Pennsylvania-based band, now comprised of frontman/rapper/programmer Matt Brandyberry, guitarist Lance Dowdle, vocalist Danny Case, and drummer Mat Madiro (Trivium) released their sophomore album, The Future earlier this year. The lead single, “Crazy” has seen the band return to the top of the Active Rock radio charts, where it currently is holding the #2 position.

Though the date on the press release I received was marked as being from the end of June, today is the first time I am seeing it and that makes me hope that its all news to you as well since I’m sharing it in our Tours and Festivals area. Let’s take a look shall we?

Do NOT miss this one”
Slaves frontman Jonny Craig adds, “I’m super excited to tour with Craig and Escape The Fate. After many years of following each other around on the road, it’s going to be great to tour together.”

Genre: Acoustic Rock
What’s that saying again? “So nice they did it twice” – I think that is the line or something else very close to it. Whatever the exact verbiage might be, the thought I am getting at is the fact that the brand new band Bad Wolves have achieved a level of bombastic success with their cover of The Cranberries song “Zombie” that was released as a single in memory of that bands singer Dolores O’Riordan. At the point of this writing the world at large still does NOT know the cause of the singers passing which is a shame. Now the Bad Wolves version of the song was nothing less than jarring and powerful and after I listened a few times was added to the content of our website on a summary you can examine HERE. The other day the band issued an acoustic version of the track and here are my thoughts about it.

Title: “Zombie” (Single)
Label: Eleven Seven
Release Date: 1/19/2018
The sudden and quite surprising dead of singer Dolores O’Riordan of The Cranberries hit a world of music fans hard since she was not only loved but also only 46 years of age. Her death followed that of the legendary “Fast” Eddie Clarke of the Original Motorhead and left music fans with the mindset of here we go again with the regular passing on of musical greats. Earlier today, I was tooling around in Spotify and saw that the band Bad Wolves had recorded The Cranberries seminal hit “Zombie” and since I had wanted to check them out I felt that this would be the perfect launching point for me. Let’s give their version of the classic tune a listen I said and from the moment it started I was down with it. There is a solemn beginning that might bring a slight Five Finger Death Punch vibe to your mind but its only there for a second as singer Tommy Vext showcases a sonic register across the main verse.
