Ashestoangels Q&A

Your name:
Crilly (vocals).

Where are you from?
Bristol town is our collective home. 

Band name:
Ashestoangels. 

Who else is in your band?
Jim (drums), Nico (bass) and Adam (guitar). 

How would you describe yourselves?
Synthy goth punk. 

Who are your main influences musically?
We all like a lot of different bands but I'm the one with they keyboard here haha. I think we sound a bit like a mix of The Misfits, Aiden, AFI, Alkaline Trio, My Passion and Vex Red. But we never set out to sound like anyone really... Just play fast songs as hard as we can. 

What do you hope to achieve in music?
Being able to play good shows to good people every night. Playing live is the best thing. We have the best fans and it's amazing getting to meet them. 

What has been the highlight of your career so far, and why?
The tour we are on right now is pretty excellent. Seems like everything is coming together and all the hard work is paying off. Of course we all have some heinous lung illness but that's just par for the course I suppose. 

And what’s the moment you want to forget?
We've tried our hardest to learn from all our mistakes and the shitty things that have happened to us. It's been a long time since we've had any fully cringeworthy disasters, so maybe we've managed to forget them! 

If you were asked to pick just one of your songs to represent your music, what would it be and why?
That would be difficult. There are a couple of sides to the band and you can't really get a full idea of what we are about with only one song but I'm really enjoying playing Dorian on this tour. 

Where can we listen to it?



Where can we find out more about your music?

Anything else you’d like to say about your band that I forgot to ask?
I think Brendan Fraser's got us covered...
"OK, you've sold out the Forum, you're standing in front of 20,000 screaming fans. What are you gonna say to 'em?" - l'm gonna say..... rock'n'roll!"
