Asking Alexandria Release “Into The Fire” Video; Announce Dec. 15 Album Release

Asking Alexandria have released a video for the new single “Into The Fire” (https://youtu.be/-jFgNreZPf0). The track, which will appear on the band’s as-of-yet untitled fifth album (Dec. 15, Sumerian Records) marks the first new music to come from the band since they reunited with singer Danny Worsnop.

“This is an incredibly exciting period in Asking Alexandria’s career. We have been through hell and back again,” explains singer/guitar player Ben Bruce. “It’s been an insanely long road but we couldn’t be more excited that it has brought us to where we are now. We have been given a new lease on life. As individuals, this is the happiest we have been in a very long time.”

The song, and accompanying video, arrives following the U.S. debut via SiriusXM Octane.

Asking Alexandria spent the summer recording the new album, with From First To Last’s Matt Good (Memphis May Fire, Upon a Burning Body) and mixer Taylor Larson (Periphery). The album’s title and cover art will be revealed soon.

Asking Alexandria is Ben Bruce (guitar/vocals), Cameron Liddell (guitar), Sam Bettley (bass), James Cassells (drums) and Danny Worsnop (vocals).

Asking Alexandria To Release “Live From Brixton And Beyond” Live Concert DVD On December 15th

Asking Alexandria To Release “Live From Brixton And Beyond” Live Concert DVD On December 15th

Asking-Alexandria-2014-group

ASKING ALEXANDRIA–the riotous, genre-bending U.K.-based rock group that Alternative Press says “blurs the lines between solipsism and sociopathy, hedonism and nihilism, even as it throws metalcore, electronic music and a healthy dose of hair metal into a blender set on ‘awesome’”–have announced LIVE FROM BRIXTON AND BEYOND–a 2-Disc live concert DVD–to be released December 15 via Sumerian Records.

“At long last, we are FINALLY releasing our first ever DVD,” says guitarist BEN BRUCE. “We have been promising this DVD for a long time now, but trust me when I say it was worth the wait. There is so much unseen footage on this release including our sold-out show at Brixton in London, our reckless Halloween concert in Hollywood, intimate behind the scenes footage, the ‘Through Sin and Self Destruction’ short film and every music video we have ever recorded. It’s been a long time in the making but we hope you enjoy every second of this. Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years and welcome to the family.”

Asking Alexandria

Asking Alexandria

The LIVE FROM BRIXTON AND BEYOND 2-disc DVD features: 1) the full live set from ASKING ALEXANDRIA’s sold-out Brixton 02 Academy show in London, England; 2) behind the scenes and backstage footage from the Brixton 02 Academy show; 3) the unseen “Reckless Halloween” performance at The Wiltern in Los Angeles; and 4) all of the group’s music videos and the “Through Sin and Self-Destruction” short film (see full tracklisting below). Watch the LIVE FROM BRIXTON AND BEYOND trailer (HERE) and pre-order the set (HERE).

ASKING ALEXANDRIA has released three albums, including their current album FROM DEATH TO DESTINY and has toured the world-over. Produced by Joey Sturgis and mixed by veteran rock radio kingmaker David Bendeth (Breaking Benjamin, Paramore, Of Mice & Men), FROM DEATH TO DESTINY fully embraces the high-flying sonic excess of Mötley Crüe, the dark electro of the pre-EDM era and the audio growl of the harder-edged bands they discovered as teenagers. The album debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart and #1 on the Independent Albums Chart in the U.S. and has launched three consecutive Top 20 Active Rock singles to date: “The Death of Me,” “Break Down the Walls” and current single “Moving On.” Just this week, “Moving On” hit the Top 15  making it the band’s highest charting single to date. The “Moving On” video has received over 2 million views and can be viewed (HERE).

Now in the midst of a headlining tour spanning Europe, the U.K. and Russia, the U.K.-based rock band will circle back to North America for a tour starting Nov. 28 in Tucson, AZ and wrapping Dec. 20 in Wilmington, NC (dates below).

ASKING ALEXANDRIA–DANNY WORSNOP (lead vocals), BEN BRUCE (lead guitars), CAMERON LIDDELL (guitars), SAM BETTLEY (bass) and JAMES CASSELLS (drums)–represent everything exciting and altogether invigorating about the hardest hitting rock n’ roll, both past and present. The group incorporates the modern hard rock sensibilities with the celebratory melodic spirit of the giant hooks of the ‘80s, the expert songwriting of the ‘90s and the unashamedly aggressive brutality of modern Millennium bravado. The electro-tinged and always unhinged miscreants have arrived armed with musical weapons owing as much to Skid Row and Guns N’ Roses as Korn and Killswitch Engage. After spending all summer on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival with Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Body Count (featuring Ice-T), Cannibal Corpse, Trivium, Miss May I, Mushroomhead, Suicide Silence and many more), the stage has been set both literally and figuratively for an even larger commercial breakthrough.

“After last year’s success at Discovery Park, the commitment from Mike Testa of Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau and the city, we believe Sacramento is a great home to build a multi-day destination music festival. I am excited to bring the biggest rock show in the past few years to the region,” says festival creator/producer Danny Wimmer of Danny Wimmer Presents.

“The economic impact tied to festivals of this magnitude is significant,” said Mike Testa, senior vice president for the Sacramento Convention & Visitors Bureau. “For this year’s two-day event, when consumed hotel rooms and visitor spending and local attendance are factored in, we expect the economic impact to be the equivalent of a city-wide convention for Sacramento.  That number is in the millions financially.”

Discovery Park is a 160-acre park conveniently located near downtown Sacramento, where the American and Sacramento Rivers meet. The Discovery Park boat launch allows boaters access to both the American and Sacramento Rivers,and the park features bike trials, picnic areas, and a playground. Discovery Park is located beside I-5 near downtown Sacramento. From I-5, take the Richards Blvd. off-ramp, then go west to get to the south entrance of the park, or follow the Garden Highway exit east from I-5 to find the north entrance. Signs denote the park’s location from I-5.

Gates for Monster Energy’s Aftershock Festival open at 11:00 AM each day.

Monster Energy’s Aftershock Festival is produced by Danny Wimmer Presents, producer of Welcome To Rockville in Jacksonville, FL, and a partner in the biggest rock festivals in America, including Rock On The Range in Columbus, OH, Carolina Rebellion in Charlotte, NC, Epicenter—Southern California’s Rock Festival, as well as the Rock Allegiance Tour.

Established in 2007 as a classic rock destination festival with the motto “life, liberty and the pursuit of rock,” Rocklahomawas revamped in 2010 as organizers teamed with AEG Live to create an event encompassing a much broader mix of classic, current and up-and-coming rock artists. In 2011, a record-breaking crowd of over 35,000 fans turned out for the festival, which raised over $10,000 for the American Red Cross as part of their tornado relief efforts in nearby Joplin, MO. In 2012, a national television audience was able to experience many Rocklahoma band performances in HD when AXS TV aired live coverage of the festival.

Rocklahoma marks the final event of the 2013 World’s Loudest Month. Created in partnership by AEG Live and Right Arm Entertainment, the World’s Loudest Month features the biggest names in rock music performing in five distinct U.S. concert atmospheres: Welcome To Rockville, Carolina Rebellion, Rockfest, Rock On The Range, and Rocklahoma. In 2012, the World’s Loudest Month featured over 100 artists playing for more than 200,000 rock music fans across thecountry on five consecutive weekends, confirming that rock music is as vital as ever.

Rocklahoma is proud to be sponsored by Bud Light, Hard Rock (presenting the Hard Rock 2nd Stage), Jägermeister, and Monster Energy.
