Asking Alexandria, have announced the release of their highly anticipated album, Like A House On Fire.
The band’s sixth full-length studio album will be released on Friday May 15 via Sumerian Records. Along with the new release news, Asking Alexandria also dropped an official music video for new track Antisocialist.
Speaking about his band’s sixth full-length album, guitarist Ben Bruce explained “We have been working our asses off for the last couple of years on creating this album. We are absolutely in love with what we have created. There are songs about triumph, strength and resilience. There are songs about losing love, losing passion and losing faith. There are songs about moving on to new things and song’s celebrating our journey. This album is filled with love and passion from the five original members of Asking Alexandria.”
Commenting on the anthemic new track, Antisocialist, Bruce continued “Antisocialist is a song written for everyone who just wants to stick their middle fingers up high in the air and scream at the top of their lungs. It’s a song for the frustrated, the forgotten, the unappreciated and the downtrodden. It’s a song for those who work hard and receive nothing in return. It’s a song for those who dream hard and are laughed at. A song that says what we all feel from time to time and a song to just let loose to! Enjoy!”
Pre-order items are available now and include several limited edition vinyl variants and a wide variety of special merch items.
Since 2008, Asking Alexandria have paved a path of their own, distilling danger and excess into an equally dangerous hybrid of stadium rock ambition, metallic energy, and electronic ecstasy. Against all odds, they achieved unprecedented success earmarked by two gold-certified singles Final Episode (Let’s Change The Channel) and Not The American Average. They’ve amassed over a billion cumulative streams and views, and three consecutive top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200—Reckless & Relentless (2011), From Death to Destiny (2013), and The Black (2016).
Now, fanning the flame like never before, the quintet burn even brighter on their sixth full-length Like A House On Fire. Once again recorded by producer Matt Good (Hollywood Undead, From First To Last), who also produced the band’s 2017 Self Titled release, Like A House On Fire was recorded throughout 2019 in between a high-profile arena tour supporting Shinedown and a direct support slot on the road with Papa Roach. The intermittent sessions allowed them to tap into the energy of touring resulting in a 15 track opus of arena filling rock songs.
