Ashes to omens


We are ashes to omens


Based out of Athens, GA, Ashes to Omens formed in late July 2017 and have influences from Breaking Benjamin, Nothing More, Audioslave, Iron Maiden and more. They’re currently booking gigs in the southeastern U.S., and went on numerous tours in 2018.

The band quickly released their debut single “The Screws”, in August of 2017 and accompanied by a music video in February 2018. Their self-titled debut album hit the charts in June 2018 and catapulted them to the number one position for Rock on Reverbnation in Athens where they have held consistently for 13 months.

Not long after the release of their album, it was featured in Georgia Music Spotlight as being “energetic, straight ahead hard rock”. Full of monolithic mid-tempo hard rock riffs, anthemic (Slash-esque) guitar solos, and gritty, commanding vocals with the ideal level of attitude and energy for the genre. As well as getting a stellar review of their most recent single, "The Conflict Within" in Rawckus Magazine.

In July-August 2018, the band opened for legendary Cinderella frontman, Tom Keifer to a sold out crowd at Innovation Amphitheater to an incredibly positive response and left with the crowd on their feet. They have also played gigs with several national acts, including Hallowpoint (Missouri) and Demon In Me (Cali). They are currently working on their 2nd album with the incredible Led Belly Studios in Dawsonville, GA with master producer, Matt Washburn slated for a late 2019 release.
