Band statement “The new release of Oah, Ash & Thorn is called ‘To Gaze on Stars of Frost’ very much on purpose: it is a line from ‘Suspended and Frozen’, yes, but more so does it neatly summarize what we are attempting to do with this set of songs.
Three are from our earliest days, previously only released on our first demo from 2015. They have here been given a treatment that we felt they deserved, and they remain for us glimmers of our first era that has since come to an end, frozen forever in time as those of us who originally started this band look back upon them and reflect on what Oak, Ash & Thorn has come to represent.
The fourth song, ‘Suspended and Frozen,’ is the first new piece of music that the band, in any configuration, has written in quite some time, it as much a star as the others, our guiding light that leads us ever onward into a future to which we are all more fully committed than ever. I tried to reflect all of this in the cover art, which was very carefully designed with all of this in mind.
The fire in our hearts burns ever on; may yours too burn thus.”
