ASKING ALEXANDRIA, one of the most successful rock bands of their generation, have today announced the release of their highly anticipated, arena conquering album, LIKE A HOUSE ON FIRE. The band’s sixth full-length studio album will be released on May 15th via Sumerian Records with pre-orders available now from likeahouseonfire.co. The band have also dropped an official music video for brand new track ‘Antisocialist‘. Watch the video below and stream the track here.
Speaking on the announcement of his band’s sixth full-length album, guitarist Ben Bruce says:
“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.”
Speaking on the band’s anthemic new track, ‘Antisocialist’, Bruce continues
“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 at likeahouseonfire.co 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 (namely, “Final Episode (Let’s Change The Channel)” and “Not The American Average”), over a billion cumulative streams and views, and three consecutive top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200—Reckless & Relentless , From Death to Destiny , and The Black .
In addition to headlining packed gigs on five continents, they have destroyed stages alongside Guns N’ Roses, Green Day, Avenged Sevenfold, Alice In Chains, and Slipknot, to name a few. Meanwhile, 2017’s self-titled Asking Alexandria spawned two of the group’s biggest singles to date: “Alone In A Room” (40 million Spotify streams) and “Into the Fire” (30 million Spotify streams). They are one of only a handful of bands from their generation who have consistently and successfully evolved over their decade-long career, maturing as song-writers and performers and growing in popularity whilst never losing sight of the core sound intrinsic to Asking Alexandria.
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 massive, arena filling rock songs.
ASKING ALEXANDRIA will be hitting the road for their 23 date North American headline Like A House On Fire tour beginning on April 30th in Phoenix, AZ and culminating in Minneapolis, MN on May 31st. Joining them on their first headline run in over 2 years will be Falling In Reverse, Wage War and Hyro The Hero making this a must-see package for any self-respecting fan of heavy music.
