From Autumn To Ashes have called it a day. Vocalist Francis Mark explained:
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. I've dedicated almost 9 years to FATA and it's become something of a security for me. I'm looking forward to feeling uncertain and the freedom of starting a new band that has no definition. We don't have any expectations or specific goals with Warship. We just want to play loud, have fun and share some positive music with our friends.
At the same time, two members of the band have unveiled their new project, Warship. The band is currently in a New York studio recording their debut release with producer Andrew Schneider (Cave In, Daughters, Pelican, Unsane). The as-yet-untitled disc is due out on Vagrant later this fall.
