From Ashes To New has NEW album coming in 2020 and Danny Case crushes it!
On September 29th, SNO BABIES became a global release. It is a gripping and emotive tale that depicts the grim realities of teenage addiction and provides hope for recovery. Kristen and Hannah are best friends – smart, likeable and college-bound – and also addicted to heroin. The pair of seemingly unlikely addicts spiral down a path of destruction, hiding their secret from well-meaning but busy parents behind pink bedrooms and school uniforms. Directed by Bridget Smith and starring Katie Kelly (Game of Silence), Paola Andino (Queen of the South) and Michael Lombardi (Rescue Me), SNO BABIES shows how easy it can be to both miss and hide the signs of addiction. Better Noise Films’ share of profits is being donated to GRI.

In a mission to reduce the stigma of Substance Use Disorders (SUD) and make an impact, Better Noise Films has collaborated with GRI to use the film’s release as a platform to raise awareness of GRI’s efforts to provide access to recovery support services all around the world. GRI is the first and only national community foundation dedicated to building a philanthropic source of funding for organizations to expand their capacity to provide people with SUD recovery support systems and services to combat the growing problem.

Errant thoughts on the SNO BABIES Soundtrack by Rock Titan’s Scotty J
Deuce – I Came to Party: This song fits perfect with the movie soundtrack. I guess this why it’s on here right? This song is definitely made for the rave scene. I bet Marilyn Manson could have done something really cool with this!
HELLYEAH – Moth (Official Video)
Hellyeah – Moth: It’s so hard listening to this knowing Vinnie Paul has departed us. Hellyeah is an awesome band, and Moth is a great song for this sound track. If anything it’s a reminder to treasure life and appreciate those with us while we have them.
Cory Marks – Outlaws & Outsiders (From the Sno Babies Movie)
Cory Marks – Outlaws & Outsiders: This is a great collaborative song featuring Rock and country legends! Travis Tritt and Mick Mars from Motely Crue. You’ve also got Ivan Moody from Five Finger Death Punch here. Marks is an artist to pay attention to in 2021!
From Ashes To New – Broken (Official Music Video from the Sno Babies Movie)
From Ashes To New – Broken: This was an awesome track from “The Future”. It represented the introduction of Danny Case as the new frontman of the band. They just came out with their new album which just takes their existence with Danny to a new level. FATN has their greatest music ahead of them.
Sixx:A.M. – Belly of The Beast: these guys are awesome. From the mind of legendary Nikki Sixx of Motely Crue, this track comes from their “Prayers for the Damned, Vol. 1 “ great fit for this soundtrack. Personally, I’d like to see more of Nikki’s focus on this band vs resurrecting a band few relate to if they were born after 1990.
Bang Bang Romeo – Shame On You (Official Music Video)
Bang Bang Romeo – Shame on you: I have to say I wasn’t familiar with these guys prior to the soundtrack. I’m definitely going back to check these guys out. You should too.
Eva Under Fire – Heroin(e) (Official Music Video from Sno Babies)
Eva Under Fire – Heroine: These are some serious up and comers! I recently interviewed someone that just toured with them prior to the pandemic. These guys ROCK. This song obviously fits the Sno Babies theme. Regardless of theme, this band is one I can see on many soundtracks to come.
Eva Under Fire singer Amanda Lyberg is both Psychologist and Rock Star
Bad Wolves – Better Off This Way: Talk about bands that exploded on to the music scene! Tommy Vext has one of those voices that sets Bad Wolves apart from anyone else in the game. He has a deeper singing voice. They’re definitely one of my favorites. These guys deserve all the attention they get. Perhaps it’s their popularity that gives them a much deserved feature on this soundtrack?
Escape The Fate – Walk On: Another band I’m not familiar with, but they have my attention. They deserve your attention as well. Hopefully the Sno Babies soundtrack opens some doors. This band would bring me out to a festival or two.
Sixx A.M. – Skin: This is their second feature on the album, and there’s still one more to go! Nikki Sixx never did anything like this with Motely Crue. Clearly he’s the brain behind this operation. It’s a different side of any music he’s ever done before. When it comes to the dark side of life, Nikki has been there done that. I’m not sure who wrote this song? But it would make sense that Sixx is the author.
Bad Wolves – Sober (Official Music Video – From the Sno Babies Movie)
Bad Wolves – Sober: This is a tune that Tommy Vext and I discussed at length. Vext has lived the life and these lyrics are near and dear to his heart. He’s fortunately remained sober and is a great role model for fans and fellow musicians alike. He’s unapologetic about his opinion and whether you agree with him or not, I for one respect his voice. He could have built a better life for himself outside music. But he decided to wear his heart on his skin sleeve and share it with the world.
SIXX:A.M. – Maybe It’s Time ft. Corey Taylor, Joe Elliott, Brantley Gilbert, Ivan Moody, Slash
Sixx A.M. – Maybe it’s time artists for recovery: strong lyrics that every listener should digest. Knowing Nikki only from his public life on display, I find myself finding a whole new respect for this musician. Given the message in Sno Babies, this song belonged on the sound track. It concludes a positive message for anyone struggling with addiction.
The COVID-19 pandemic has increased the risk for those in recovery, for both catching the virus and more severe outcomes. Treatments and support systems are disrupted, and social isolation increases the risk for addiction, relapse and overdose deaths.
