Fat Wreck Chords act Smoke Or Fire has enlisted drummer Dave Atchison. Atchison, a former member of defunct hardcore punk act From Ashes Rise, will join the band as they record their sophomore full length and follow up to Above The City.

The band has opted to record this September with producer Matt Allison (Alkaline Trio, Lawrence Arms) and are aiming for a tentative February release. In the meantime, the new lineup will be touring in the fall and debuting new material.

From Ashes Rise released a number of records, with their last, Nightmares issued via Jade Tree in 2003.
