Warship, which includes Francis Mark and Rob Lauritsen of From Autumn to Ashes, is currently recording their debut album with producer Andrew Schneider (Cave In, Daughters, Pelican, Unsane). The disc is due out in the fall via Vagrant Records. You can check out the track "Toil" on the bands's new MySpace page.

From Autumn to Ashes will be going on an indefinite hiatus, vocalist Francis Mark stated, “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.”

"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."

"The name Warship comes from a time last year when I was making worship candles (the tall, skinny glass jar candles you get in Brooklyn dollar stores and bodegas)," continues Mark. "They have paintings of saints on one side and a prayer on the opposite. I was buying blank candles and doing my own paintings on them. A friend asked me on a phone call what had I been up to and when I said "making worship candles," she thought that I meant candles with actual warships on them. This led me to thinking about the relationship between the two. How discouraging it is when 'worship' begets 'warships'."

You guys are Retarded because they aren't Emo. They are more like Hardcore with Emo lyrics. I'd say they have a handful of full on emo songs; then about half are just the lyrics and the other half are just hardcore/metal. They are really in there own genera and until I saw them live in 2001 I never gave them as much credit as they deserved. Definitely in the top 5 concerts I've seen and I have seen hundreds including Tool, Metallica, Megadeath, Opeth to name some of the bigger ones.
