Hot on the heels of their forthcoming summer tour with Papa Roach and Bad Wolves, UK megastars Asking Alexandria have just gone all out for their brand new stand-alone single “The Violence.”
Continuing where they left off with their brilliant cinematic videos for “Into The Fire” and “Alone In A Room,” Danny Worsnop, Ben Bruce and company have taken things even further by releasing a new gory 7-minute mini-movie all about life as zombies.
Talking about the new song and Jensen Noen-directed short film, Worsnop says, “‘The Violence’ was an incredibly rewarding song to create. Ben and I both got to go way outside anything we’d done before and create something fresh and engaging. Thematically the song is about the way mainstream media and politicians manipulate and spread mistruth amongst the people to encourage and create anger, fear, division, and conflict in their quest to control and acquire power. As the history books have shown, this only goes so far before the people stand up and say enough is enough. I hope everyone enjoys what we’ve created here. We had a great time making it and even more fun shooting the video!”
Guitarist Ben Bruce adds, “We are back bigger, better, louder and more insane than ever before. This single encompasses everything we have been working towards. Huge guitars, anthemic drums and some of the catchiest, most technically accomplished vocals that Danny has ever delivered and this is only just the beginning.”
