In early December, Rites of Ash launched their online merchandise site (ritesofash.bigcartel.com) to the public. Orders have been rushing in daily for quality merchandise items such as CDs, shirts, and posters. All of these items have the unique option to be autographed by the band. "We perform for our fans, without them we would be nothing," says guitarist Lazzo. "We want to make them feel like they are a part of our family."

Recently, MTV has asked the band to have their music played on four more shows: "Pimp My Ride," "Next," "Livin La Haina," and "Island Life." These new shows are following up Rites of Ash's MTV debut last year on: "The Real World: Key West," "Real World/Road Rules Challenge: Fresh Meat," "Gauntlet 2," "Moves," and "Why Can't I Be You?"

Rites of Ash has been creating a tremendous buzz in the industry with their critically acclaimed live show which features synchronous backing videos projected on a large projector screen; video mannequins with LCD monitor heads; stage props; special effect lighting; and last but not least, "a remarkable sound experience that must be heard to be believed," exclaims US DMC Supremacy Champion, DJ IDEE. The band's MySpace profile has exploded, averaging over 1,500 plays a day and making them one of the top Industrial/Rock bands in the United States.
