k is dead? That’s fake news. Asking Alexandria is all the evidence we need.
ASKING ALEXANDRIA, alive with vibrant potency and empowering authenticity, stand in joyous defiance of the tired cynicism that would declare the death of rock.
Asking Alexandria have earned a place among the most streamed, downloaded, watched, and altogether listened to bands in a generation, combining the innovation of modern active rock with the traditional attitude of the culture’s trailblazers.
No matter what the pundits proclaim, clearly the real fans are onto something else. The social media accounts representing Danny Worsnop (vocals), Ben Bruce (guitar), Cameron Liddell (guitar), Sam Bettley (bass), James Cassells (drums), and the band overall constitute a combined follower count well over 10 million strong.
They’ve shared the stage with Guns N’ Roses, Green Day, Alice In Chains, and Avenged Sevenfold; toured in support of Slipknot, Korn and Bullet For My Valentine; co-headlined with Black Veil Brides; joined Warped Tour and Rockstar Mayhem; played every major rock festival in the world; and headlined sold out theater tours.
Asking Anthems “The Final Episode” and “Not the American Average” were both certified gold by the RIAA for single sales in excess of 500,000 each. The music videos for those two singles alone amassed over 100 million views on YouTube. “The Death of Me,” “Moving On,” and “A Prophecy” together account for over 100 million more. The videos from The Black were viewed 70 million times.
The amount of ink spilled in cover stories splashed across Kerrang!, Metal Hammer, Rock Sound, Alternative Press, Revolver; the massive plays on satellite and an increasing number of terrestrial radio stations; the number of Tumblr blogs, Reddit threads, and Snapchat stories revolving around the band’s antics; all of it tells a story about passion, dedication, and what’s possible when destiny beats back death.
