Red Premiere New Song “From The Ashes”

Red have premiered a new song titled “From The Ashes.” You can find a lyric video for that below:

Bassist Randy Armstrong commented:

“‘From The Ashes’ reflects on where our minds can go when we’ve hit the bottom. You’ve been written off, left out in the cold because the world doesn’t care about your situation and nothing in the past matters much today. It’s about having the motivation to rise and turn your failure and mistakes into success and survival.”

Underoath, Ex-Flyleaf, Ex-Three Days Grace, Etc. Members To Guest On Breaking Benjamin’s New Acoustic Album

It looks like Breaking Benjamin’s upcoming acoustic album will feature a number of special guests. During an interview with HardDrive Radio, Benjamin Burnley confirmed that the effort will include guest vocals from Spencer Chamberlain (Underoath), Lacey Sturm (ex-Flyleaf), Adam Gontier (ex-Three Days Grace), and Michael Barnes (Red).

Burnley said the following about the acoustic tracks:

“They all have orchestration on ’em — like, full orchestra on ’em. And then there’s four that have guest vocalists that [are] really, really amazing. They did so good. I have Lacey Sturm — she used to be the singer for Flyleaf — she’s doing a song with me called ‘Dear Agony‘… She was great. She nailed it, man. And she’s so fun to work with, too. She just nails it every time. And she’s such an incredible singer. So she did that.

And then Spencer from Underoath did ‘Red Cold River‘. And then Adam Gontier, the original singer for Three Days Grace, he did a song called ‘Dance With The Devil‘ with me. And then Mike, the singer for Red, did ‘Failure‘ with me.”

He also added:

“[They’re] all are friends of mine. So I just was, like, ‘How can we put some more of an original spin on this so it’s not just a remake of things? So that’s what I came up with. And I tried to get a couple of more too, but it was a time thing. These guys, more so than anything, they’re my friends. So that’s what’s cool about it to me — that they’re my friends on a record with me.”

Red Premiere “The Evening Hate” Video

Red have premiered a new video for their new song “The Evening Hate” via Loudwire. The track is named after the phrase coined by World War I frontline trench soldiers in 1915 regarding the relentless enemy bombing.

Bassist Randy Armstrong commented:

“While we all experience or witness hate throughout life, whether it be physical, mental or emotional, we all have the ability to crawl out and rise above such a tremendous adversary, hell bent on division and destruction. Without hate, the world would never know what true love really is.

After beginning a war against an evil that wanted to control us all in the last video, ‘The Evening Hate’ picks up right where that left off. The song itself is about relentless hate that never ends, and what better way to depict hate than through war…The video is a fitting representation in that it depicts the chaos of conflict and the hate that fuels it. It’s up to us to crawl out of the hate and press on. The world would never know what true love is if hate didn’t exist.”
