Published Jun 09, 2008Don't call it a break-up. New York's From Autumn To Ashes have struggled to keep a permanent line-up since they released Too Bad You're Beautiful in 2001, and as of today, (June 9) one of the innovative bands of the screamo genre haven't broken up, but rather taken an indefinite hiatus according to a statement made by singer/drummer Fran Mark.
"At this point I feel that we have accomplished everything we could have hoped for with FATA. It doesn't feel much like a break up. Just feels like the end. It's complete. I would say that we are going on indefinite hiatus because the term breakup suggests a more negative circumstance. There have been no quarrels between band members. It is also not a question of fan support because we are lucky to have some of the most loyal and impassioned friends a band could ask for. Thank you again for the overwhelming support of our last album. I've dedicated almost 9 years to FATA and it's become something of a security for me."
To most hardcore fans of FATA it should come as little surprise that the band have parted ways, but a light at the end of tunnel does exist as Mark and FATA guitarist Rob Lauritsen have a new band named Warship. Currently they are in New York recording their debut release with producer Andrew Schneider (Pelican, Cave In) and their yet-to-be-named album will be released on Vagrant Records later this fall, while a summer tour will be announced shortly.
