Long Island post-hardcore act FROM AUTUMN TO ASHES slammed its former frontman Ben Perri during a recent interview with Possum on Altitude TV. According to the group, Perri left them hanging while they were recording their new album, "Holding a Wolf by the Ears" (Vagrant), by promising the band he was coming down to do his tracks and never showing up. The group was then forced to put drummer Francis Mark into the lead vocalist position.

The entire interview, which also features discussion of the band's recent hangout session with former heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson, can be viewed at this location.

Formed in 2000, FROM AUTUMN TO ASHES became known for their bruising live shows and for deftly marrying melody to the punishing, aggressive hardcore sound. The band released their first album, "Too Bad You're Beautiful", on Ferret in 2001 that went on to sell over 100,000 copies. The band signed to Vagrant in 2003 and released "The Fiction We Live" (over 150,000 sold), followed by "Abandon Your Friends".

That guy was the only thing keeping this band from being complete garbage. They were still garbage, just not complete garbage. Now they are.

I've heard he's not doing drums live anymore and they got a touring drummer. Holding a Wolf is better than Abandon imo.
