Long Island post-hardcore/metalcore band From Autumn to Ashes ended a seven-year hiatus this past weekend with a hometown show at Revolution on Friday (5/15) followed by a set at Asbury Park’s 2015 Skate & Surf Festival. We caught the latter, which leaned most heavily on the first two records, giving us old faves like “The Royal Crown vs Blue Duchess,” “The Switch,” “Take Her to the Music Store,” “The After Dinner Payback,” and more. Pictures from Skate & Surf, videos from Long Island, and the setlists from both are in this post.

FATA already had a summer tour announced too, and now that those two NYC-area dates are behind them, they’ve tacked a NYC show onto the end of the tour too. They play Gramercy Theatre on July 23 with support from Emery. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (5/22) at 10 AM.

Update: As a few commenters pointed out, the reunion lineup is without lead screamer Benjamin Perri, who’s on the first three albums but left in 2006. Francis Mark, who moved from drums/clean vocals to frontman for their final record, is fronting the band for this reunion too. The rest of the lineup is the same one they left off with pre-hiatus: Brian Deneeve (guitar), Mike Pilato (bass), Rob Lauritsen (guitar) and Jeff Gretz (drums). Ben, meanwhile, is a popular bartender in Seattle.

UPDATE: The band have been forced to cancel dates, including the NYC show. They write:

Hey Everybody,
Unfortunately, due to a personal emergency beyond our control, we will not be able to play our upcoming west coast shows with our friends in Hawthorne Heights, Sleepwave, and Extinction AD, nor will be be doing the NYC date with Emery and Fashion Week.
We apologize to everyone who was planning on coming out to see these shows. We’ll be making up shows as soon as we can.
Thank you all so much for your continued support, we are incredibly grateful to every one of you for sticking by us throughout the years.
We’ll keep you updated on when the make-up shows will be.
As always, thanks for everything…we’ll see you soon!
FATA
