FROM ASHES RISE AND JADE TREE JOIN FORCES

From Ashes Rise and Jade Tree have joined forces to form the partnership of the century!

Over five years, two and half full-lengths, and several US and European tours, this Nashville, Tennessee-reared four-piece has evolved beyond the boundaries of hardcore punk with its hammering thrash and abrasive edges that scream with both discomfort and harmony. The collective power of From Ashes Rise’s blazing musical force and socio-political lyrics have resulted in a devastating aural assault that has made From Ashes Rise an unparalleled band in the scene today. During their existence, From Ashes Rise has also spawned or coexisted with other such luminous bands as Deaththreat, Tragedy, No Parade and World Burns To Death. From Ashes Rise will begin working on a brand new full-length in 2003.

JADE TREE EMPLOYEE CHARLES KAERICHER CAUGHT ‘DIRTY DANCING’

Charles Kaericher, age 19 and an employee of Jade Tree, Inc., was seen by several individuals who promptly flooded Jade Tree with their calls, after spotting Mr. Kaericher ‘Dirty Dancing’ at the local 2-step bar, Muy Caliente, last Friday. “Frankly, I think it’s disgusting what I saw Mr. Kaericher doing at Muy Caliente. That’s not what I call ‘Family Values!†said one anonymous caller. When asked about the allegations, Mr. Kaericher vehemently denied them, stating “Those actions are against my religious beliefs and I would never engage in such lewd acts.” Unnamed sources close to Mr. Kaericher have speculated that in response to his actions, Mr. Kaericher has been grounded by his parents for the next two weeks.

NEW JETS TO BRAZIL TEES

Fresh from the T-shirt manufacturers are 2 new Jets to Brazil t-shirt designs. They differ from our other shirts in the fact that these are 50/50 shirts, but that is only because they were made specifically for the band, who then opted to have Jade Tree sell them instead. The Deer (JTTS73),available in navy, and the Kitty (JTTS74), available in either red or black, are both awesome new additions to the fine selection of Jets merch available at the E-Store.
