Biography

In early 2005 in the ashes of many other bands they had each seen crash and burn, guitarist Rick Jackson, guitarist/vocalist Jamie Lane, Bassist/vocalist Bryan Kelly and drummer Del Hall came together for the first time in a collective soup of talent. Almost as soon as they struck their first chords together they felt a chemical reaction that none of them had ever experienced before. Right away they knew it was something extraordinary. The musicianship was tight and the music seemed to just flow out as if they had been born to play together. The vocal styles of Bryan Kelly and Jamie Lane meld together like the two voices where designed to harmonize with each other. Toss in some fills by drummer Del Hall and some screamin guitar leads by Rick Jackson and the recipe creates magic that your ears can appreciate. Now appropriately named "After the Ashes", the band is made up of remnants of such phenomenal bands as Six Foot Soul, DUST, Dunahmus and Far From Over and is the product of years of live experience and touring. With over 14 studio albums between them, they have had occasion to share the stage with some of the biggest names in music including: Skid Row, Vince Neil, Anthrax, Def Leppard, Sebastian Bach, Dark New Day, Jackyl, Stuck Mojo, Slaughter, Ted Nugent, Warrant, Bret Michaels, Quiet Riot and many more. Their unparalleled attitude and energetic live performance has created a rabid following of fans with simple word of mouth alone. After the Ashes looks forward to the release of their debut c.d. this winter and plans are in the making for a spring/summer tour of the United States. The evolution has begun...

Little pieces lying all around
Of what we were and who we used to be
And if you don’t care and I don’t care
Then someone tell me what the hell we’re doing here
Fighting to be free...so tell me

Take a look at what you’ve done to me
Did it make you what you want to be?
Is this life the one you want?
Why am I the one you haunt?

I always knew you’d fly away someday
I just wasn’t sure if I would even care
And I’m wasted here these wasted years
I sit alone just a child with all my fears
Fighting to be free…so tell me

Take a look at what you’ve done to me
Did it make you what you want to be?
Is this life the one you want?
Why am I the one you haunt?

The one you haunt
The one you haunt
The one you haunt

Take a look at what you’ve done to me
Did it make you what you want to be?
Is this life the one you want?
Why am I the one you haunt?

Take a look at what you’ve done to me
Did it make you what you want to be?
Is this life the one you want?
Why am I the one you haunt?

The one you haunt
The one you haunt

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh (screamed)

The one you haunt

Stomp

Well there is blood on my face

From grooves persistent ways

Better hear what I say

Cuz it will get you.

When you enter the pit

Best’ be ready for war

Cuz if you come here weak

Well be there to put you down.

There are lumps on my head,

My jeans are soaking wet

caught a boot in the chest

My eyes are blackened.

Feet a foot of the floor

bodies flying around

well make the Floor look alive

we’ll all be twisted around.

Are you ready

Cuz I’m coming.

I got my boots on

And I’ll be stompin

Stomp

You’ve taken your last breath

There’s nothing more to sweat

About swallowed your tongue

But you’ll get with it

Never leave the pit

Cuz well drag you back

Never make that Mistake

Well be there to put you down.

Put you down, oh yeah

Are you ready?

Cuz i’m coming.

I’ve got my boots on

And I’ll be stomping

Stomp

Are you ready?

Yeah ha, Cuz i’m coming.

I’ve got my boots on

And I’ll be stomping

Stomp (stomp stomp stomp)

Have you got your boots on?

All The Same

Just the other day

I took a look at myself

and I was waisting away yah

Sick and tired of you

trying to put me down

this is how Im feeling

Love, hate, pain

its all the same

to live, die, kill,

its all the same to me

All the schemes you have tried

they’ve left me empty inside

let this be a Warning,

not gonna take anymore

time to settle the score

tell ya how Im feeling.

Love, hate, pain

its all the same

to live, die kill,

its all the same to me.

Then the day rolled around

I didn’t carry no frown

and you could not Make me.

Since the day that I put you in your place

still feels like im Saying

Love, hate, pain

its all the same

to live, die, kill

its all the same to me.

to me, to me, to me,

Its all the same to me

To me, to me, to me

its all the same to me

and I am here to tell you about it

it’s … all.. the… same

it’s all the same to

it’s … all.. the… same to me

It’s always been the same and it’s always going to be the same
