From Ashes To New have parted ways with drummer Tim D’onofrio and clean vocalist Chris Musser. Mat Madiro (ex-Trivium) will be taking over drumming duties, but it is unknown who will replace Musser.
The band said the following:
“As we mentioned in our live stream, there are some changes happening with From Ashes to New. Unfortunately, Tim and Chris decided this wasn’t for them anymore and have ultimately stepped away from the band. That being said, we are more excited now than ever before with the new music we are writing! To us, (Lance, Branden, Matt) change brings opportunity. We would like to personally thank Mat Madiro for stepping in on drums, as he is a force to reckon with behind the kit! Keep an eye out for updates and awesome news moving forward. We can’t thank everyone enough for all of the amazing support you continue to show us as we grow. We love all of you…here’s to the future!!!”
We are back in the studio writing our sophomore full-length, a follow-up to debut LP ‘Day One’. The new album comes with new challenges, following the departures of bandmates Chris Musser and Tim D’Onofrio, who have left the band for personal reasons. We will now be joined by Mat Madiro, formerly of Trivium, on drums. We all agree we are writing the best songs we’ve ever written. In this band, we look at change as a new level of opportunity. Because we are supported by the greatest fans, we will continue our journey together to the top, and come out with an amazing album. Stay tuned to our band page on Facebook for updates and our next moves. -Matt, Lance, and Branden #herestothefuture #change #is #good #getready for….. #day2? 😂 #fromashestonew #fatn #spreadtheashes
