US rock/rap outfit From Ashes To New have released their new single ‘Crazy’, along with an accompanying lyric video.
The band first broke out in 2016 with the success of their debut record Day One, but after they ended their last tour in December 2016 they went through a number of personnel changes.
Now revamped and recharged the band – now consisting of founder / rapper / programmer Matt Brandyberry and guitarist Lance Dowdle with new additions, vocalist Danny Case and drummer Mat Madiro – are ready to unleash new music to fans old and new.
“Pretty much anything that could go wrong to try and slow down the process and throw you a curveball happened during the last year since we came off the road, but we came out on the other side”, states Matt Brandyberry.
“I was in a very down mind frame because of what was happening with the other members leaving and the anxiety made it difficult to write at times but ultimately I found the right people to come together and we decided we were going to write the best music we possibly could and see where that took us.”
‘Crazy’ is a huge anthem for the people feeling caught in the middle of a situation and confused by it all.
“Crazy is, at its core, a song about someone or something driving you absolutely out of your mind and feeling unable to walk away from it. I feel like everyone at one point or another experiences that in their lives”, states Danny Case.
“For me personally, I dated someone for a very short period of time and it felt like everything I said and did was wrong. I honestly thought I was losing my mind because I knew it was a bad situation, but I just felt like I couldn’t walk away. I think having that life experience really helped when we sat down and wrote the lyrics.”
‘Crazy’ was recorded at Atrium Audio with producers Grant McFarland and Carson Slovak (August Burns Red) and mixed by Josh Wilbur (Korn, Lamb Of God).
