We here at Jade Tree hate to be the bearers of bad news, but, sadly, FROM ASHES RISE has broken up. The thrash lords of Portland via Nashville had a good run lasting nearly eight years and left behind a legacy of great records, including our personal favorite, Nightmares (JT1088). The band made a brief statement regarding the split earlier today:
“It was a great ride for many years but all things pass [and] so do punk bands. So to all of you, know that the money you spent, the time and effort on this band was the drive and will for us to continue for many years and for that we give thanks.
From Ashes Rise played all over and met some of the world’s best people and did some crazy ass shit along the way. You never realize that when you’re doing it that it will ever end. But, we all wanted a change and are still doing bands and playing punk rockâ€¦ As long as people listen to our records, keep memories and want or were part of our long walk on a short pier, then so be it. So now go start your own band!”
So raise your fist, drop the needle on the LP and remember a great band today.
