Asking Alexandria release new track “The Violence”

Earlier this week English rockers Asking Alexandria released their latest track “The Violence.”

Complete with a cheesy zombie movie music video that features the boys in the band, the track is the first new track since the band’s 2017 self-titled album.

The music video was written and directed by Jensen Noen and presented by Scissor Films and Sumerian Films. The video follow the plight of every day zombies: Cocaine Shane (Danny Worsnop), Peter (Ben Bruce), Disco Luke (Cameron Liddell), Phat Noah (James Cassells) and Waterboy Eric (Sam Bettley).

Says guitarist Ben Bruce:

“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.”

Worsnop adds:

“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!”

Asking Alexandria are headed out on the road later this month with Papa Roach and Bad Wolves on the “Who Do You Trust” US Summer Tour. Then in September Asking Alexandria will join Shinedown, Papa Roach, and Savage After Midnight on another North American tour.
