Bands have to work hard to set themselves apart from the hordes of sound-alike bands that exist within the scene and Ashton is no stranger to that feat. They have scored spots on stage with Halifax, Yellowcard, Hellogoodbye, Steel Train, Mae, Tokyo Rose, Copeland, Park, Near Miss, Brandtson, Grade, Scars of Tomorrow, and many other established touring acts. Their main influences, though somewhat obvious are namely: Park, At the Drive In, Rescue, Mock Orange, The Mars Volta, Moneen, Hot Rod Circuit, The Get Up Kids, Name Taken, to list a few of the bands that help to compliment their sound. The band has grown in ways too numerable to count, gaining the respect of many within the industry. Their dedication and passion are refreshing and a prominent aspect present in both their persona and their haunting melodies.
