From Ashes to New
About From Ashes to New
Rap-rock outfit From Ashes to New was formed in 2013 by Matt Brandyberry, who funded the project with money he received from a workers compensation settlement.
∙ “Through It All,” the lead single from the band’s debut, Day One, propelled them into the Top 10 of several Billboard rock charts.
∙ “Hail the Crown,” a 2016 collaboration with production duo CFO$, became the opening theme for the WWE web series 205 Live.
∙ From Ashes to New’s sophomore album, The Future, spawned the band’s highest-charting single to date, “Crazy.”
∙ In 2019, the group featured on a remix of “Yuve Yuve Yu,” a song from Mongolian metal band The Hu, who also tapped Jacoby Shaddix and Lzzy Hale for guest spots.
∙ The video for hit single “Panic” was conceived months prior to COVID-19 lockdown, but the anxiety-addled clip—shot during the early days of quarantine—proved to be eerily prophetic.
