OA: MEMBERS OF WARSHIP LOOK FORWARD TO VFW VENUE November 28, 2008

Playing at venues such as a VFW hall is exactly what the members of Warship are looking for.

After years touring as From Autumn to Ashes, a hardcore band that drew crowds of thousands of fans to big venues, former lead singer Francis Mark and guitarist Rob Lauritsen were ready to start sleeping on people’s floors again on tour.

“It smells better than most hotel rooms,” Lauritsen said. “It connects you to people again.”

The two formed Warship when From Autumn to Ashes broke up. Warship released “Supply and Depend” on Vagrant Records earlier this month.

“I’m totally proud of everything we did,” Lauritsen said about From Autumn to Ashes.

But, he said, it was time for a change.

For the first time, Mark and Lauritsen wrote new songs together and used thrown together equipment and a busted speaker because the good stuff was tucked away in storage in Brooklyn. In their live shows, the duo has a friend play with them.

“Supply and Depend” is just as hard, if not harder than any of From Autumn to Ashes releases, which shocked fans and reviewers who expected Mark to come out with something softer.

The album was not overly produced, but it’s got a live sound to it, Lauritsen said.

“It’s a pretty honest record, and I hope that translates,” he said.
