"From the Ashes" reflects on where our minds can go when we've hit the bottom," says RED bassist Randy Armstrong. "You've been written off, left out in the cold because the world doesn't care about your situation and nothing in the past matters much today. It's about having the motivation to rise and turn your failure and mistakes into success and survival."
We are fighting to survive
I'll never break
From the ashes we ignite
Don't fade away
We live, we die
We fall, we rise
(From "From The Ashes" chorus.)
Produced by the band's longtime collaborator, Rob Graves, the new single follows the SiriusXM Octane, hardDrive with Lou Brutus, hardDrive XL, New Metal Tracks (Spotify), and Music Choice-featured single "The Evening Hate," which has over 560,000 streams on YouTube alone. Along with the music video, the song's cinematic short film that was written, directed and produced by RED, as well as stars the band, was also premiered by Loudwire.
