(SRO) From Ashes To New are ready to break boundaries with their hybrid, high-energy mix of hard rock, nu-metal/hip-hop, electronic and alternative that's underlined throughout their new album Blackout, due July 28 via Better Noise Music.

Blackout's concept is that it's a prequel to their 2016 debut album Day One. Blackout encapsulates the distress of a pre-apocalyptic world mirroring the frame of mind the world felt during the 2020 pandemic during which time the album was written. It marks a return to From Ashes To New's roots with a sound that's a fresh spin on the sound that broke them onto the scene.

From Ashes To New have released another sample of Blackout with their latest single, "Hate Me Too," out today (March 17) across all digital platforms. The anthemic track is paired with a dark comedy music video which contains an over-the-top American Psycho Christian Bale style representation of an internal struggle and mental anguish of erupting emotions and fantasies when relationships fall apart.

"So many of us fall victim to the classic toxic relationship," says vocalist Matt Brandyberry. "Feeling like you can't live without someone but knowing you'd be better off if you could. Oftentimes these feelings are mutual, but neither of you can see it. Sometimes we just need an anthem to remind us that being stuck isn't always the only option and violence never is."

The band will join Shinedown and Three Days Grace on tour across the East Coast and Midwest from April 3 to May 9 before appearing at some of the summer's largest rock festivals including Welcome To Rockville and Sonic Temple. FROM ASHES TO NEW have further announced a series of dates following the aforementioned run with Bullet For My Valentine from 5/21 - 5/28.
