ASKING ALEXANDRIA have released three albums, toured around the world-over and reached the top of the U.S. charts with their current album FROM DEATH TO DESTINY. It debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 albums chart and #1 on the Independent Albums Chart and also launched three Top 20 Active Rock singles in a row so far: “The Death of Me” and “Break Down the Walls.” Now, the heartfelt “Moving On” (also from FROM DEATH TO DESTINY) just hit Top 15 this week and is heading towards Top 10 nationally as the band’s highest charting single to date. Watch the video for ASKING ALEXANDRIA’s “Moving On” (Here) It has received over 2 million views in a couple of months and is the biggest single of the band’s career, so far.
Currently 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, DC (dates below).
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.
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.
