FROM AUTUMN TO ASHES Rejoined By Original Bassist

Long Island post-hardcore act FROM AUTUMN TO ASHES has been rejoined by the group's original bassist Mike Pilato.

Commented singer Francis Mark: "You older [FROM AUTUMN TO ASHES] fans may remember [Mike] from his performances on 'Too Bad You're Beautiful' and 'The Fiction We Live'. He toured with FROM AUTUMN TO ASHES from 2000-2004, he has sweet sideburns and he's been my good friend since I was in 8th grade."

Francis added: "We will miss Josh Newton very much and have enjoyed the last 3 years of making music together. We could have never survived the hardships of the last year and could have never rebuilt the band without his efforts and humor. I'm sure whatever he does next will be amazing so keep your eyes and ears open for that."

Formed in 2000, FROM AUTUMN TO ASHES became known for their bruising live shows and for deftly marrying melody to the punishing, aggressive hardcore sound. The band released their first album, "Too Bad You're Beautiful", on Ferret in 2001 that went on to sell over 100,000 copies. The band signed to Vagrant in 2003 and released "The Fiction We Live" (over 150,000 sold), followed by "Abandon Your Friends".
