From Ashes To New have released a new EP titled “Quarantine Chronicles Vol. 3.” The effort is the third of three new EPs from the band and the cover art and track listing for it can be found below:

“Quarantine Chronicles Vol. 3” Track Listing:

01. “Wait For Me” (feat. Thousand Foot Krutch’s Trevor McNevan)
02. “Tears Don’t Fall” (Bullet For My Valentine cover)
03. “Already Gone”
04. “Beat It” (Michael Jackson cover)
05. “Gone Forever”

An official video for “Wait For Me” featuring Thousand Foot Krutch’s Trevor McNevan can be found below. Frontman Matt Brandyberry said the following about that:

“Being absent either mentally or physically is a difficult situation for anyone who has to endure it. Whether it’s being deployed in the armed forces, dealing with PTSD, drug addiction, or something that changes the structure of a relationship, waiting for someone to get through adversity in their life can be difficult. We all know there are people who stand in our corner and try their best to bring us to light, but for how long and through how much can they handle the darkness. Being in that dark place, I’ve had to ask my loved ones the question ‘Will you wait for me?’”

McNevan added:

“It’s always an honor to be a part of another band’s project or song that you believe in. We share the same goal of trying to defy the stigma around mental health, and I think this song is a portrait of that.”

2021 Rebel Rock Festival Cancelled

The 2021 Rebel Rock festival in Orlando, FL has officially been cancelled. The event was unable to move forward due to unfit conditions related to severe weather.

Organizers issued the following statement:

“We are deeply and utterly devastated to announce the cancellation of this weekend’s Rebel Rock Festival.

After this week’s severe weather and despite our crew’s effort to improve the ground conditions around the Main Stage over the last three days, our venue partner has deemed the area unfit for artists, crews, vendors, and fans. We were able to get in the Taco Metal Party on Thursday by using the B-Main grounds while continuing to work on the conditions of the Main Stage grounds. The amount of water dropped this week simply proved to be too much to clear to provide you a safe festival environment and experience. We can’t tell you how heartbreaking it is to see two years of work be tackled by mother nature.

We’ll share more information about refunds as soon as possible.”

Fans Crash Car Into Venue During P.O.D., From Ashes To New, & All Good Things’ Birmingham, AL Show

During P.O.D., From Ashes To New, and All Good Things’ September 21 show at the Zydeco Bar in Birmingham, AL, two fans ended up crashing a car into the building. They have since been arrested.

According to the Birmingham Police Department, the suspects allegedly slammed their car into the venue and took off before they were taken into custody. One person suffered minor injuries. Notably, witnesses also mentioned that the driver was kicked out of the venue earlier that night.

From Ashes To New vocalist Matt Brandyberry discussed the incident in a video that was uploaded to social media:

“Apparently, what happened was this dude got kicked out of our show tonight. And I guess he got mad at the security guard for doing that. I guess they got into a fight and, from what I’m hearing, someone pulled a gun — security pulled a gun or something like that — and they got into a fight. And then this dude left… I guess what ended up happening was after he left, he came back with his car and he tried to run the security guard over. … This dude ran his fucking car into the bar, into the club. … I guess he must’ve hit the security guard, but the security guard seems fine; he’s bleeding, but he seems like he’s fine. But the dude who’s driving the car is mangled. The dude is, like, all messed up.”

Fire From The Gods Team Up With From Ashes To New’s Matt Brandyberry For New Version Of “Victory”

Fire From The Gods have premiered a new video for a new version of “Victory” featuring Matt Brandyberry (From Ashes To New). The original version of the track is from the band’s latest album “American Sun.”

AJ Channer commented:

“These last 2 years have been tough on so many. I can talk until I’m blue in the face about how much we missed out on not being able to tour. We want to give ‘American Sun’ a proper send off. What better way than with ‘Victory.’ Big up to Matt of From Ashes To New for hopping on and blessing the track with his unique take on the song.”

Richie Wicander added:

“The new visual speaks to one of the biggest goals we have with making music – to speak to the human experience and call for connection. We wanted to use the visuals from social and political protests and natural disasters in my homeland of Germany, and Italy, to show that as a collective we are battling something and are in this together. We need to push forward and have perseverance. We will overcome. We will have our victory – together!”
