From Ashes To New Shine a Light on the Struggle of Impoverished Beginnings With the Release of “Heartache” This Past June
NEW YORK, NY – OCTOBER 7, 2022 – From Ashes To New just dropped a new song and video called “Until We Break” via Better Noise Music. The new track centers around feelings of betrayal and uncertainty, telling the story of how sometimes the path of least resistance is often the wrong choice. Matty Mullins of Memphis May Fire lent his vocals to the track, diving deep into the band’s signature emotional storytelling. This summer, the band toured with Memphis May Fire on the Remade in Misery tour and released an official music video for “Heartache,” a song that sonically depicts the triumphant tale behind the band’s name, earning over 1M views on YouTube in just three months. They will be headlining their “Until We Break” tour this fall, visiting cities in North Carolina, New York, Indiana, Pennsylvania and more – see below for a full list of dates. Purchase tickets HERE.

Reciting lyrics from the song, Matt Brandyberry said, “‘Close our eyes ‘cause there is nothing to see. We’ll all be fine if all we do is believe.’ It seems we are increasingly taking the path of least resistance. Although, that is often the wrong path. Closing our minds to the truth because a lie is easier to believe…A short term solution for a long term problem. We are following our leaders one by one until we break.”
The official music video is a studio performance of the high-energy track. Matty makes an appearance in the video directed by Eric DiCarlo.
Joining forces with From Ashes To New on the track, Matty from Memphis Mayfire said, “I love this tune and I’m so stoked to be a part of it. We had such a killer time having From Ashes To New on tour with us and I can’t wait for people to finally hear this collab!”

Dates include performances in Jacksonville, NC, Chattanooga, TN, Milwaukee, WI and others. Visit https://www.fromashestonew.com/tour for more information. A full list of dates is available below.

ABOUT FROM ASHES TO NEW
In a small town, you either die where you came from or dream your way out. From Ashes To New understand this choice. As such, the Lancaster, PA band—Matt Brandyberry [rap vocals, keys, synths, programming, guitar], Danny Case [clean & unclean vocals], Lance Dowdle [lead guitar], and Mat Madiro [drums]—churn out an anthemic hybrid of hard rock, hip-hop, electronic, and alternative with enough energy to inspire you to get up, move forward, and maybe even, make a change. Since 2013, the group have risen from humble beginnings to the top of the 21st century rock vanguard with hundreds of millions of streams, sold out shows across the country, and acclaim from LoudWire, Alternative Press, and more.
“Growing up in Elizabethtown, PA felt hopeless in a way,” admits Matt. “You go to college and become part of corporate America, or you’re just “trash”. For the longest time, I fell into the latter category according to other people. My mentality was, ‘Who are these people to fucking tell me what I’m going to do with my life?’ They don’t make my decisions; I make decisions for myself. It took a lot of ups and downs, but it’s paying off. I owe it to the small town blue-collar mentality that made me work harder. Danny grew up in Rochester, but his story is the same. We were the loners picked last. Everyone underestimated us. We fought through it for all of our lives, and we’re going to be picked first now.”
“I was always an outcast who nobody gave a shit about,” agrees Danny. “The only thing I ever dreamt of was music. Like the other guys in From Ashes to New, nobody was going to tell me otherwise or stop me.”
During 2021, the musicians holed up in Lancaster with longtime collaborators and producers Grant McFarland and Carson Slovak to create their upcoming album. This time around, the band made a conscious decision to ignore outside influences and focus on what makes them From Ashes To New.
“We weren’t going to let other people tell us what to do,” affirms Danny. “We went back to the guys who produced us for a long time, because they worked cohesively with us.”
“We got back to the days of creating music to simply create,” adds Matt. “We ended up making the most genuine piece of art we could. At the same time, we applied everything we’ve learned as musicians, producers, and writers. We knew we were capable of doing everything bigger and better.”
“Heartache” sets the stage for an aggressive revolutionized sound. “It was one of the first songs for the record,” Matt recalls. “It’s about my upbringing and being from a place of hard work and labor. You’re born, you’re taught to work, you work until your bones can’t move, and you die. You may be able to make a happy life, but is it the life you want? You may be born into this scenario, but you find your own path. It’s largely our story.”
“I came from a dark place. I’m made from the heartache.”
