ASKING ALEXANDRIA ANNOUNCE WINTER UK & EUROPEAN TOUR AS SPECIAL GUEST TO SHINEDOWN

 


Critically acclaimed rock band Asking Alexandria will embark on a full UK and European tour this winter as special guest to Shinedown. The extensive tour will see the band performing on iconic stages across Europe and the UK, bringing their incendiary shows to 16 major cities starting from Brussels and capping off in London.

Ben Bruce comments: “After being away for so long due to various Covid-related problems we are excited to finally be coming home. To make things even sweeter, we are coming back with some of our best friends, Shinedown. This is going to be an absolutely incredible tour and we are bringing an insane show with us. We can’t wait to finally get home and see you all.”

After ten years of recording their music separately, the band found new energy and a drive for creating when they reunited in Nashville during quarantine to make their latest album "See What's On The Inside" which has accumulated over 77 million streams globally since release in October of 2021. The British rockers, also released their Never Gonna Learn EP in January 2022, including the previously unreleased song "New Devil" featuring Maria Brink from In This Moment.

In May, while on a US tour with NOTHING MORE, Atreyu and Eva Under Fire, Asking Alexandria dropped the latest version of their song “Faded Out” with Sharon den Adel of Within Temptation, a track that describes devastating sadness. Accompanying the single's release was a chilling official music video for the song which has quickly surpassed 1 Million views on YouTube. "Faded Out" featuring Sharon den Adel appears on the soundtrack THE RETALIATORS, a Better Noise Film already receiving praise, which is in theatres now and coming to home rental and purchase release around Halloween 2022.

This deluxe version will capture all of the bonus content released by the band in 2022, along with a number of acoustic versions of songs from “See What’s On The Inside”. In early 2023, the band will start releasing new singles and videos from a forthcoming new studio project.

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 band 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, and 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 [2011], From Death to Destiny [2013], and The Black [2016]. 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. The track is now out-streaming their biggest hit, “Alone In A Room.”
