From Ashes To New have released their single and lyric video for 'Crazy,' the first single off of their upcoming LP 'The Future,' which comes out on April 20th via Better Noise Records / Eleven Seven Music.
'Crazy' is the first look into the sophomore album from the revamped Lancaster, PA based band consisting of founder/rapper/programmer Matt Brandyberry and guitarist Lance Dowdle with new additions, vocalist Danny Case and drummer Mat Madiro. The band has gone through a few changes since they ended their last tour in December 2016.
“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, 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. ”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).
