From Ashes To New have shared an official lyric video for "Crazy" off their new album “The Future” (out April 20). That effort features the band's new lineup, which includes rapper/programmer Matt Brandyberry and guitarist Lance Dowdle, along with new vocalist Danny Case and drummer Mat Madiro.
Brandyberry said the following about the new lineup:
“Pretty much anything that could go wrong to try and slow down the process and throw you a curveball happened during the last year since we came off the road, but we came out on the other side. I was in a very down mind frame because of what was happening with the other members leaving and the anxiety made it difficult to write at times but ultimately I found the right people to come together and we decided we were going to write the best music we possibly could and see where that took us.”
Case also commented on “Crazy”:
“’Crazy’ is, at its core, a song about someone or something driving you absolutely out of your mind and feeling unable to walk away from it. I feel like everyone at one point or another experiences that in their lives.”
For me personally, I dated someone for a very short period of time and it felt like everything I said and did was wrong. I honestly thought I was losing my mind because I knew it was a bad situation, but I just felt like I couldn’t walk away. I think having that life experience really helped when we sat down and wrote the lyrics.”
