Meet the band

Formed in 2005, Back From Ashes (BFA) deliver a hard hitting brand of progressive, metal and rock music that is as exciting and powerful as it is unique. The band's award-winning, versatile sound stems from a wide range of musical influences, that not only includes hard rock and heavy metal, but blues, jazz, classic rock and hardcore.

The current lineup features (left to right in photo above) Mikey Butikofer - guitar, Bobby Blades - drums, Billy "Zane" Muna - vocals, Anthony DeJesus - guitar, and David DiGilio - bass.

Back From Ashes have received radio airplay on nearly 100 Internet, college and terrestrial FM stations across the world, ranking as high as #5 & #6 on CMJ and FMQB, respectively. The band has also been featured and/or interviewed on dozens of radio programs, websites, blogs, and in printed magazines, such as MUEN and Rock Thiz Magazine.

BFA have been nominated (and won) several awards, such as Producer's Choice Modern Rock Band of the Year, Video Of The Year, Rock Album of the Year, Best Hard Rock/Heavy Metal Band of the Year, and Best Rock Band of the Year at both the Los Angeles/Phoenix Music Awards and Star Music Awards.
