We are Ashen Reach, a 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 OPEN AIR! (This was under our previous name). 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.
Our aim is to blend the classic rock attitude and vibrance, with the intensity, power and aggression of modern rock and metal, whilst interpolating elements of any musical style or genre we feel can advance our vision.
We 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 heavy rock band.
Our most recent releases “Tear It Down” (released 18th November 2019) and “Prey” (released 1st of Feb 2020) were recorded in The Motor Museum with Loïc Gaillard. They can be found on streaming services such as; Spotify, YouTube, Google play, Deezer, iTunes and more.
Supported acts include, but aren't limited to; Bullet For My Valentine (On the 2 Russian dates of their “Gravity” tour), We have recently supported Fahran on their winter 2020 tour, Angel Nation, Bad Pollyanna, Alia Tempora, Collibus, and Chasing Dragons. Venues played include, but aren’t limited to: The A2 Arena, Adrenaline Stadium, O2 Academy 3 (Manchester), The Zanzibar Club and Catton Park.
