Contrary to recent rumors, From Autumn To Ashes are not breaking up. Instead, the band is writing material for their next album and will perform as part of the Warped Tour package. Drummer/singer Francis Mark has issued the following statement:

"It's true that we were expecting a break up, mainly because over the past two years the band has been pointed in a direction that we never meant for it to go. Not musically, mind you. It's easy to say "I don't like this, I can't relate to it anymore so it's over". Thankfully we went on hiatus for the last few months and had a chance to clear our heads. We realized that at the end of the day we are all still very close friends and we love playing music together. We just needed to get back in touch with the fundamentals that this band was founded on. The main goal was always to have fun and the most fun times were when we were five guys in a van playing music because we loved it. There was no other reason to do it. This genre wasn't popular and there was no money to be made. We played in houses and basements with Bleeding Through. We played in coffee shops with Taking Back Sunday. We played shows with Avenged Sevenfold where the band members were the only people there. I'm not trying to give a 'keep it real' speech on the ethics of underground music. I'm just saying it's important to remember where you came from because for a while I forgot and I was miserable. Breaking up is the easy way out. I'd rather look at all the bad decisions that have been made and try to fix them."

Sweetness. Quite awesome I say. Band members clearing heads always seems to solve problems.
