From Ashes To New Share a New Single and Music Video “Barely Breathing” ft. Chrissy of Against The Current

“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 single’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.
