Noise Exclusive: Hear Ashland Give Thanks For The “Misery” With New Power Pop Anthem


Gearing up to release their first new piece of work since 2019′s Over The Moon, power pop duo Ashland is teaming up with The Noise to premiere their confident new single “Misery.”

If you’ve been wondering why we haven’t heard from the former Rise Records act in quite some time, maybe their despondent new track – with lyrics like “I was living out my dream til you showed up and crushed that plan” – will help you understand.

Commenting on the strong new song, which surprisingly almost didn’t get released, vocalist Asia Marie states, “Aaron [Wood, guitarist] originally wanted to cut ‘Misery.’ He showed me a scratch recording he had been working on and it immediately resonated with me.” 

“The lyrics make it seem a little sarcastic,” Marie says, “but we are honestly grateful for both the good and bad experiences we’ve had as musicians because they’ve brought us to where we are today and that’s what this song is about.”
