New Jersey metalcore quintet ASHES, formerly known as Ashes Of My Regrets has released their debut music video and single under the new guise with a fitting title, “Newborn Soul“.
We spoke to vocalist, Chris Ferland about the single, “Lyrically this song is about just accepting who you are. It really in itself is a story about how I came to accept myself and how I want to share this new found self empowerment with others. I no longer care what people think of me, when people look down upon me or judge me, or hate on us its almost like a liberating feeling. It makes me think, well if you take time of your day to think about me then it must be for a reason and I must have done something right.”
As for the name change, Ferland went on to comment, “2017 has been one of the craziest years for us. Filled with more downs than ups but I truly believe that we all have grown not only as musicians but as people too. I feel like this is ASHES at its finest and I can’t wait to share it with the world.”
With ambient and synth delayed backtracks, poppy hooks and catchy harmonies, ASHES seems to be on top of whats to come next in metalcore. Check out “Newborn Soul” below.
