The first new material from Portland’s crust/punk heroes From Ashes Rise since their 2003-released Nightmares LP is finally available today, via the Rejoice The End/Rage Of Sanity 7″ out today via Southern Lord.
In celebration of the release of the 7″, a brand new video for the track “Rejoice The End” has been created, as part of the Scion AV series. Visualized and directed by David Hall of Handshake Inc. (Brutal Truth, Today is the Day, Bastard Noise, Agoraphobic Nosebleed, Rwake, etc.) the video can be viewed right now, along with an extensive director’s statement from Hall and more, via Brooklyn Vegan and Youtube player below.
“Rejoice The End,” is also available for download via a Southern Lord label mixtape released via Cvlt Nation.
Formed in Nashville, Tennessee during the mid 1990s’ American crust punk surge, later relocating to their current home in Portland, Oregon, the band have unleashed three LPs and a plethora of split releases, EPs and more, amidst waves of heavy underground touring.
The infectious, downtuned From Ashes Rise sound has become a staple in the scene, and alongside bands like Tragedy and His Hero Is Gone have helped pioneer what is defined as modern crust punk, the band remaining one of the most brutally-charged and hauntingly melodic forerunners of the scene.
