Back Story

Ashen Reach are a hard rock band from Liverpool, England. 2018 opened up new horizons for the band, winning the Merseyside leg of the prestigious Metal 2 The Masses competition against some of the best bands the region has to offer, this led to an amazing prize of performing on the New Blood Stage at the Biggest Metal Festival in the UK : BLOODSTOCK (This was incredible).
2018 also saw us play venues both local and afar covering Plymouth, Bristol, Wolverhampton, Wales, Manchester, Preston, Stockport and our hometown Liverpool to name a few. We also performed a self-hosted gig with an orchestra and released our demo CD, "Traveller", recorded at Parr Street Studios.
Our aim is to blend the classic rock attitude and vibrance with the intensity and power of modern rock, while interpolating elements of any musical style we feel can advance our vision.
After the introduction of Paddy Cummins, the decision was made to take the concepts of “Traveller” and elaborate on them with the modern rock sound the band has come to associate itself with.
Since then, Ashen Reach have developed a catalogue of music varying from in-your-face anthems, emotional ballads, progressive soundscapes, and still maintain the sound that makes the band what it is; a hard-hitting, no-holds-barred hard rock band.
Our most recent releases “Gone Tomorrow” and “Phoenix” were recorded in The Motor Museum with Loïc Gaillard back in October 2018. They were both released as singles in early 2019 following our name change over the Christmas period. They can be found on streaming services including/but not limited to; Spotify, Google play, Deezer and iTunes.
Supported acts include, but aren't limited to; Bullet For My Valentine (On the 2 Russian dates of their “Gravity” tour), Angel Nation, Bad Pollyanna, Alia Tempora, Endeavour, Collibus, Twisted Illusion and Chasing Dragons.
