Ashes of the Wake is the band’s third studio album. The album debuted at number 27 on the Billboard 200, selling 35,000 copies in its first-week and was rated by Guitar World as the 49th greatest Guitar Album of all Time. The album is aimed at the war in Iraq, with songs such as “Ashes of the Wake” (which includes snippets of former Marine Staff Sergeant Jimmy Massey in an interview after his return from the Iraq War), “Now You’ve Got Something to Die For”, “One Gun” and “The Faded Line”.
