Up From The Ashes (2010–present)

In late 2010, the band confirmed on their official Facebook page that they are going into the studio to record a follow-up to their self-titled debut album, with a hopeful release before summer of 2011. On October 4, 2010, the band went on to say "Next album will be even more rockin' than the first. Heavier, faster, more metal and more in your face".

On March 30, 2011, Burn Halo streamed the new song "Tear It Down" on Noisecreep, and confirmed the name of the new album, as being on Up from the Ashes. On April 14, 2011, the band stated on Facebook that a music video for the first single "Tear It Down" would be released soon. "Tear It Down" was released as an official single on iTunes on April 19, 2011. On June 16, 2011, the band streamed "Dakota", another new song from the upcoming album, on Revolver Magazine's website, as well as on their Facebook page.

On January 1, 2012, frontman James Hart announced on the band's Facebook page that due to some unforeseen circumstances and personal decisions, Brandon Lynn, Aaron Boehler, and Dillon Ray have left the band. Hart will continue touring with the other remaining member Joey Roxx, along with some new touring members that might become a part of the permanent line-up of the band.

On January 2, 2012, it was announced that Sonny Tremblay would be the touring, and possibly permanent drummer for Burn Halo.

On January 3, 2012, the band announced via their Facebook page that the new bass player would be Ryan Frost, and the new Rhythm guitar player would be Chris Paterson.

On February 14th In an interview with Hails and Horns Magazine, James answered questions regarding the lineup change, management frustrations, and the next Burn Halo album, stating: "Before this last album had been released, our management had made some decisions for the band that we did not agree with. Those decisions turned out to be game changers for the band and this album, and not in a good way. Our touring, promotion and marketing was not half as strong as it was on the first album. It’s like no one wanted to work for us. Things got tough on the road and 3 of our members decided to take on their personal lives at home and leave the touring behind"..."Let’s just say that the current lineup consists of just myself and Roxx. The other guys need to prove themselves before they are listed as members." and "I’ve put my head down and decided to move forward. We’ve started writing some new stuff in preparations for a new BURN HALO album."

In February 2013, James, Joey, & Ryan began writing sessions for the band's 3rd album.
