Tuesday, April 14, 2020 - ASKING ALEXANDRIA, one of the most successful rock bands of their generation, have released another new track DOWN TO HELL with an accompanying visualizer video listen to the track here and watch the video here or below. The track is the 4th to be released from the band's highly anticipated sixth studio album,LIKE A HOUSE ON FIRE, set for release on May 15th via Sumerian Records with pre-orders available now from likeahouseonfire.co.
Previously released single ANTISOCIALIST has already made a huge impact since it was released last month. It was one of the the fastest growing singles at Active Rock radio in the US for 4 straight weeks, hitting the #18 spot in that short time and making it the bands fastest Top 20 charting single ever. It adds to their enormously impressive run of what is now 9 consecutive Top 20 hits at Active Rock radio and has already clocked up 1.9 million streams on Spotify and 1.5 million YouTube views to date.
Speaking on the release of DOWN TO HELL, guitarist Ben Bruce continues "We all have a rebellious side and Down to Hell is a big ol’, rebellious rock n roll song reminiscent of From Death to Destiny. From the minute the song starts to the very last note the energy doesn’t stop! It’s a headbanger from start to finish and I cannot wait to play this one live!"
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.
