Top 10 alt-metal vanguards FROM ASHES TO NEW have released the emotionally charged new song “Barely Breathing” featuring Chrissy Costanza from rock trio Against The Current. Adeptly juxtaposing clean vocals and rap verses delivered by FROM ASHES TO NEW founding member Matt Brandyberry alongside impassioned screams from frontman Danny Case, “Barely Breathing,” examines the dissolution of a turbulent romance whose lovers are left “barely breathing.” Against The Current vocalist Chrissy Costanza’s melodic vocals movingly add to the intimacy of the track. Out today, February 2, via Better Noise Music, stream/download “Barely Breathing (feat. Chrissy Costanza from Against The Current)” HERE.
“From the moment we created this song, we knew it was special,” says Case. “It brought a new angle and a fresh sound to the band and because of that, we knew we wanted to feature a singer that could add their own flair and truly give the song its own identity. Chrissy is a perfect addition to this song and her voice brings a dynamic that elevates the song to an even greater level.”
“It’s always a huge honor to be welcomed into another artist’s world,” shares Costanza. “I was a massive fan of this song from the very first listen that getting to be a part of it is such a dream.”
Using inspiration from the track’s dark cover art (seen above), FROM ASHES TO NEW collaborated with director and VFX artist JOSIAHx for the “Barely Breathing” visually striking music video. Watch it streaming below or via YouTube HERE.
“Melodic, emotive and undeniably powerful” (mxdwn), FROM ASHES TO NEW’s critically acclaimed #1-charting concept album BLACKOUT saw the band achieve their fifth-ever Top 10-charting rock radio single with “Hate Me Too” which peaked at #8 and landed them on Loudwire’s list of “The Most-Played Songs On Rock Radio in 2023.” The band wrapped 2024 with album track “Nightmare” peaking at #5. Produced by Brandyberry, alongside longtime collaborators and producers Grant McFarland and Carson Slovak¸ BLACKOUT acted as a prequel to their 2016 debut DAY ONE conceptually themed around a distressed world pre-apocalypse and was fittingly wrote during the 2020 pandemic.

FROM ASHES TO NEW’s blend of hard rock, hip-hop, electronic, and alternative music has built them a diverse and dedicated fanbase across the globe. The band spent most of 2023 on the road including tours with Shinedown, Three Days Grace, In This Moment, Motionless in White and Fit For A King along with festival appearances at Welcome to Rockville and Sonic Temple. The Lancaster, PA-based band wrapped up the year with a headlining U.S. tour featuring support from The Word Alive, Catch Your Breath and EKOH including two back-to-back sold-out hometown shows at HMAC in Harrisburg, PA.
