Release “Scars That I’m Hiding”(feat. Anders Fridén of In Flames)
As Featured In The Retaliators Original Motion Picture Soundtrack
New Album, Panic, Released August 28 via Better Noise Music
FROM ASHES TO NEW is proud to debut a new version of “Scars That I’m Hiding” that was created for the soundtrack for the Better Noise Films release, The Retailiators (out on-demand in late October 2020).
With guest vocals courtesy of Anders Fridén from In Flames, this version of “Scars That I’m Hiding” is the newest focus track from The Retailiators Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.
Anders says of the track ‘“We’ve had the pleasure of touring with From Ashes To New a few times, so I was excited when they asked me to do a feature on their new song. The end result sounds awesome. Can’t wait to hit the road together again hopefully soon.”
A version without Fridén’s vocals will be included on the band’s upcoming release entitled PANIC, released on August 28.
Of the track and film, frontman Matt Brandyberry says “There is nothing more bad-ass than being able to act alongside so many talented artists and THE RETALIATORS gave us that opportunity! As kids we grew up with dreams to be musicians and actors and we are beyond grateful to be able to bring both dreams to fruition through this project. We can’t help but feel that all of this is building the hype we know our new album “Panic” deserves. This is only the beginning for what FATN is about to do!”
The video for “Scars That I’m Hiding” (feat Anders Fridén of In Flames) features the members of From Ashes To New, Anders and footage from the upcoming film. The horror spectacular film revolves around a single father and local pastor, John Bishop (Michael Lombardi – Rescue Me) who serves as a righteous role model for his faithful flock and his two daughters. When tragedy strikes, Detective Jed Sawyer (Marc Menchaca – Ozark) offers him a secret chance for vengeance, forcing not only a reckoning with himself, but the unleashing of a terrifying underground horror. Also featured in the film are members of Mötley Crüe, Five Finger Death Punch and Papa Roach among others.

PANIC features the same lineup as the band’s 2018’s breakthrough release The Future — vocalists Brandyberry and Danny Case as well as guitarist Lance Dowdle and drummer Matt Madiro. Brandyberry credits the undeniable musical magnetism of these eleven songs to the enduring lineup. “The chemistry between us is there and fans who have seen us recently have been very vocal about the fact that we are firing on all cylinders.” That unified feeling which was solidified on the road performing songs like the Billboard-charting single “Crazy,” enabling the band to further refine their sound and move creatively to the next level. “We know what our vision is and we know what we want to do, so we were able to really accomplish that on this album because the structure is there,” he adds.

Check it out here smith-kotzen.lnk.to/albumPR
Adrian says of the song, “It’s a really cool sort of driving track, one of the heavier ones on the album and we’re excited to get it out there ahead of the album release. We’ve both been thrilled by the reaction to our music so far and are very much looking forward to meeting up again as soon as we can, to write some more songs together.”
Richie adds, “Running was the first song Adrian and I worked on. Adrian came in with that heavy verse riff which lead me to conjuring up what lives as our chorus to the composition. Running is surely one of my top three favourites on the Smith/Kotzen album and I really look forward to playing this one live”.
As well as the duo co-writing, co-producing and sharing guitars and vocals, Richie also plays bass and drums on the track.
With the two previous singles Taking My Chances and cars having been enthusiastically welcomed by fans and media alike, Running is the perfect final choice ahead of the eponymous album release on March 26 to showcase the astonishing breadth of talent and musical diversity between this unique pairing of two of rock’s most respected artists.

We spent a lot of time on small details, which really completes the song, in my opinion!!”
