Rock legends Asking Alexandria share heavy new single, “Bad Blood.”
The song throws the listener right in with heavy drums, before calming down a moment as the vocals begin. That calm does not last as the track immediately picks back up and includes some screaming vocals. Throughout “Bad Blood,” Asking Alexandria balances both lush and intense vocals expertly. “Bad Blood” is an excellent rock track, one to be expected from the iconic band.
The band is set to release its eighth studio album on Aug. 25 via Better Noise Music. “Where Do We Go From Here?” is the “culmination” of the band’s journey, according to lead guitarist Ben Bruce. He shared:
“We worked really hard to incorporate every aspect of what our fans love about Asking Alexandria. We have taken elements from every single record we have ever written and pieced them all together to create one album. Our fans will find elements from ‘Stand Up and Scream,’ such as the synth-tinged breakdown on ‘Things Could Be Different,’ all the way through to ‘See What’s On The Inside’ on this album. Lyrically, the album explores themes of loss and struggle through to hope and finding your own inner strength. We are incredibly proud of this album, and we can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
The British band has been providing the world with hits for 15 years, and if “Bad Blood” is any indication, “Where Do We Go From Here?” will continue that trend.
“Psycho” was the lead single from “Where Do We From Here?” which became the most added song on Active Rock radio for two weeks.
After the album drop, Asking Alexandria will be headed on tour with The HU, Bad Wolves and Zero 9:36. The stellar lineup makes the “Psycho Tour” a must-see for any rock lover. Check out the dates here:
