From Autumn To Ashes - Lilacs & Lolita

I first read about Long Island's From Autumn To Ashes in one of my favorite zines (Under The Volcano). Their first record, Too Bad You're Beautiful, was a hardcore kick in the face, but what really struck me was the nine-minute long closing track, Short Stories With Tragic Endings. The song mixed the band's heavy sounds/screaming with the sweet vocals of Melanie Willis of One True Thing. It's a remarkable track. Check it out on Spotify if you get a chance (I couldn't find a good video of it on YouTube...there's a live video with the drummer singing Melanie's part...yeah, not quite the same...while you're at it check out Autumn's Monologue, the other song she sings with the band).

Here's a track off their second record The Fiction We Live. Enjoy!
