From Ashes to New – Downfall (Lyric Video)

The band is out of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Formed barely two years ago by vocalist, programmer and creative mastermind Matt Brandyberry. FROM ASHES TO NEW are one such flare; a thoroughly modern rock band wielding both a state-of-the-art sound and an old-as-the-hills work ethic.



Brandyberry mention “I decided I was going to put everything I had inside of me into doing music, it became everything to me. I was like a sponge – I wanted to learn every technique, every skill so that I had what I needed to out the ideas that I had in my head on paper and eventually turn them into records.”

“We always wanted our songs to sound huge,” admits co-vocalist and melodic linchpin Chris Musser. “Our ambition is to throw as much as we can into them and give the listener the most connecting experience possible. We vent a lot of emotion, a lot of frustrations, a lot of angst through our songs, but we always want them to have a craft to them – something which shines through.”

“When we were recording the album, we were all holding down full time jobs,” explains Musser. “I work fixing up body panels for airplanes. I’d start work at 6, finish at 4 then go straight to the studio to work until 2 in the morning. That has been my life for the past year and the discontentment of working in a dead-end job has filtered through onto this album massively. We go through the same things that everyone else who has to wake up in the morning and go do something they hate.”
