FROM ASHES TO NEW Shows Fans That 'Love Is Louder' As Part Of National Bullying Prevention Month

In honor of National Bullying Prevention Month, Better Noise Records' FROM ASHES TO NEW has partnered with Love Is Louder in an effort to help fans and friends who have been affected by bullying and its side effects (such as depression and suicide) and to call attention to the underlying problems instead of the symptoms.

Love Is Louder was started by actress Brittany Snow, MTV and The Jed Foundation in 2010. Their directive is to amplify the message that "love and support are louder than any voice that tries to bring us down." Creating community and making people feel more connected and supported, they provide campus programming for high schools and colleges to educate students on how to communicate positively and responsibly with friends who are being bullied, suffer from body image issues, depression, suicidal thoughts and more.

Through Pledge Music, the band has set out to raise money to bolster Love Is Louder's important efforts. Using lyrics from their current single "Broken", the band has created an exclusive shirt with "I Won't Be Broken" asserting the band's and fans' position of strength to help solve the problems.

"As people, our differences make us special, but they can also divide us and create conflict," explains vocalist Matt Brandyberry. "We need to think before we talk or act to make sure we aren't causing other people pain." Co-vocalist Danny Case adds: "It is important to us to use the platform we have and our connection to all the people we see while on tour around the country to do some good."

The story of FROM ASHES TO NEW is truly that of pursuing a dream regardless of the obstacles that may arise. The band's debut album, "Day One", earned the band a Top 10 track at active rock radio in the U.S. with the single "Through It All". Following an extensive album cycle, the band's original drummer and co-vocalist both abruptly left the band. Rather than focusing on the setbacks, FROM ASHES TO NEW forged ahead with a new energy and purpose.

The Pennsylvania-based band, now comprised of Brandyberry, guitarist Lance Dowdle, Case and drummer Mat Madiro (ex-TRIVIUM), released its second album, "The Future", earlier this year. The lead single, "Crazy", peaked at the No. 2 position on the active rock radio chart.

The band is currently touring throughout the U.S., with a run of headlines shows this month as well as supporting PAPA ROACH across Texas. They have also joined the bill with FIVE FINGER DEATH PUNCH and BREAKING BENJAMIN on tour and BAD WOLVES and IN FLAMES on select dates.
