From Autumn to Ashes is an American post-hardcore band from Long Island, New York. Their first album, Too Bad You're Beautiful, was released in 2002, and is characterized by a great hardcore violence, and emotional moods. The melodic incarnations are there with the Chloroform Perfume acoustic piece, and the guitars are heavy and worked solo. In 2003 released The Fiction We Live which devotes the group as one of the main emo combos. Signed at the very popular independent label Vagrant Records (The Get Up Kids, Dashboard Confessional), they incorporate in this new record much more vocals, although their compositions remain violent.
In 2005, Abandon Your Friends comes out, and makes way for more "calm" titles with more room for Francis Mark to sing. In 2007, A Wolf By The Ears Holding came out, this last album taking more or less the rhythms of The Fiction We Live.

The term Autumn is attributed to both the season and a character that the group has created. Mark and Gross planned to use the character in a book.
During the first few months of touring, From Autumn to Ashes claims to have sold half of their equipment, a car, and spent between $ 3,000 and $ 4,000 doing demos and distributing them by hand.
