From Autumn To Ashes singer arrested for drugs

From Autumn To Ashes singer Francis 'Fran' Mark Last week recently reunited band From Autumn To Ashes abruptly dropped off the second half of their North American tour with Hawthorne Heights, Sleepwave, and Extinction AD. FATA blamed the move on "a personal emergency beyond our control." Apparently, the real reason for the cancellations is a criminal charge against singer (and former drummer) Francis Mark. On June 29, Mark, age 32, was allegedly sentenced in Michigan for a September 2014 offense of "maintaining a drug house." While he was not sent to prison, Mark appears to have received a year of probation. As such, travel restrictions likely apply, leaving Mark unable to continue touring for the foreseeable future. We have no further information at the moment.

Why the fck would this band ever consider coming back with out the other singer. This guy was always a fcking turd. They didn't send him to prison because he'd like the beat too much.

anonymous 7/7/2015 8:36:54 AM

anonymous 7/7/2015 11:51:46 AM

I'm a law student. The singer is charged with being a retard. Penalty is death. Hopefully.

anonymous 7/7/2015 9:16:37 PM

Where Do You Draw The Line for this Innaprope? I guess The Second Wrong Makes You Feel Right and he's just Alive Out Of Habit. Maybe he can go to prison and get into a Vicious c-ckfight with 2 dudes name Jack And Ginger. He always had Delusions Of Grandeur.

anonymous 7/8/2015 3:39:08 AM

band members trolling their own band mate

anonymous 7/8/2015 9:08:34 AM

anonymous 7/8/2015 9:42:44 AM

Short sentencing with tragic endings

anonymous 7/8/2015 12:58:23 PM

One year probation? I smell a rat

anonymous 7/8/2015 1:32:27 PM

or it's maybe one year probation because he was just growing some weed?? the fact that this apparently went down last year and they got into canada recently tells me it's not that bad.

anonymous 7/8/2015 1:33:27 PM

Those skinny post hardcore kids are always fcking in drug houses

anonymous 7/8/2015 8:13:19 PM

So no one is gonna point out that the "drug house offense" happened in September of 14 and October of 14 is when from autumn to ashes got back together?

Piot12047 7/9/2015 7:10:04 AM

It was DMT, they were in another realm of reality until sept.

anonymous 7/9/2015 8:07:32 AM

"So no one is gonna point out that the "drug house offense" happened in September of 14 and October of 14 is when from autumn to ashes got back together?" meaning what??

anonymous 7/10/2015 8:12:31 AM

God loves you

anonymous 7/10/2015 3:06:20 PM

The awesome Cobainish heroiny pic of him they used for the article, is on fleek.

anonymous 7/10/2015 5:34:13 PM

they got back together to pay for drugs, or to pay a dealer they owed

anonymous 7/10/2015 6:06:30 PM

Hey Mark, Scott Weiland called, he wanted his 1993 plush photography pose back.

anonymous 7/10/2015 8:06:28 PM

I don't think you pay for drugs when you are the one making them

anonymous 7/11/2015 10:22:09 PM

One year probation and he was touring........idiot !!!!

anonymous 7/12/2015 3:23:52 PM

He was not on probation yet when he was touring......idiot

anonymous 7/13/2015 9:11:09 PM

This is a load of bullshit. Get your facts before you spew your bullshit all over the place. A drug house lets get real. One of the nicest people I've ever met. All the people with their stupid comments above should be sentenced to death along with the jerks who couldn't find out what the real charge was a reports this crap.

anonymous 7/18/2015 8:43:12 PM

Yes he was in probation ......idiot

anonymous 7/20/2015 8:55:38 AM

Last show of that run was June 28th in Philly. Sentenced to probation on June 29th according to Michigan dept. Of corrections website. He was not touring while on probation.

anonymous 10/29/2015 2:01:15 PM

This is blown way out of proportion. Mark was growing pot on his farm 60 miles north of Detroit.

anonymous 5/10/2016 3:46:20 AM
