Acclaimed British rock group Asking Alexandria just announced the October 1 release of their upcoming full-length studio album See What’s On The Inside.
The band is celebrating the album announcement with the release of first single “Alone Again” today.A raw, emotional, introspective rock anthem, the single was co-written by all five members and offers a fitting first sampling of the full-length LP. Tapping into a renewed sense of creative energy, the band is more aligned than ever and rediscovered their love for songwriting and making music together during the recording sessions for this album.
“Alone Again” and an extended “Intro” for the song are now available to stream and download across platforms now.
Of the single, the new album and the new chapter with Better Noise, founding member and lead guitarist Ben Bruce said:
“Alone Again’ and the rest of this album is the result of us reconnecting and falling back in love with why we started this band in the first place. No frills or cheap tricks, just the five of us playing our instruments as hard and as loud as we can! At some point in our lives, we all feel lost and confused as to who we are and who we want to be, and I think this song will really unite all of us in that sense. We are so excited to share, not only this new song with you all, but our new album. We went back to our roots as musicians and really wanted to reignite that passion and love for rock and metal music. Metallica, Led Zeppelin, Queen, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Aerosmith, AC/DC….all the greats that we fell in love with as kids have greatly influenced this new album and we couldn’t be more excited!”
Pre Orders for See What’s On The Inside are available now
ABOUT ASKING ALEXANDRIA
Since 2008, Asking Alexandria have established a world of rock music that is completely their own. Now, over a BILLION cumulative streams and views later, with a new label behind them – the band signed a global deal with Better Noise Music in 2021 – the U.K-based rock group are readying their next chapter.
Composed today of their original line-up – Ben Bruce [guitar, backing vocals], Danny Worsnop [lead vocals], James Cassells [drums], Cameron Liddell [guitar], and Sam Bettley [bass] – the quintet has arrived at a place of clarity and refreshed sense of artistic purpose. In the early months of 2021, all five members found themselves hunkered down in a house in Franklin, TN, to write and record their new seventh studio album. It was the first time in over a decade that all were together in the same studio. Armed with a new sense of dedication to themselves and to their fans, they went back to their roots and pulled inspiration from some of their earliest influences and musical heroes – Led Zeppelin, Metallica, AC/DC, Queen. With time to reflect on their journey thus far they began preparing their next steps forward as a band. With no gimmicks or cheap tricks to fall back on and a renewed appetite for writing together, they fell in love again, with music and with each other as band mates.
In the band’s 10+ years as a worldwide touring and recording force, they have achieved unprecedented success earmarked by two gold-certified singles (namely, “Final Episode (Let’s Change The Channel)” and “Not The American Average”) and three consecutive top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200—Reckless & Relentless , From Death to Destiny , and The Black . In addition to headlining packed gigs on five continents, they’ve graced stages alongside Guns N’ Roses, Green Day, Avenged Sevenfold, Alice In Chains, and Slipknot, to name a few. 2017’s self-titled LP Asking Alexandria spawned two of the group’s biggest singles to date: “Alone In A Room” (60 million Spotify streams) and “Into the Fire” (50 million Spotify streams). And most recently, they saw critical acclaim with their 2020 sixth full-length studio album Like A House On Fire.
The result of this reflection and renewed creative energy is the band’s most cohesive and self-assured record to date. The project’s first single, the poignantly powerful, guitar-driven “Alone Again” was written by the entire band and is a fitting first offering of the sonic journey on which the world is about to join them. But beyond its moving lyrics and soaring melodies, it is a rally cry and a statement of a group of artists who are here to stay and ready more than ever to be heard.
