Asking Alexandria Unleash "The Violence"

“But all they wanted was violence- To plant their seeds and divide us- If they want the worst that's inside us
Well, bring on the violence, the violence”

British rockers Asking Alexandria have been hyping up their new single and short film “Violence” in short, tactical social media posts which included calling a number in which you received a recording stating: 'The time has come, they have the answers, the cure for the cancer that we've become'. The more people that signed up, the more teaser content was revealed until today when it all becomes clear.

Well done boys.

The Tarantino-like landscape created in short film 'The Violence' sees humans as the infected and zombies their prey - what a twist!. We 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) as they are forced to battle the onslaught of the blood thirsty humans relentlessly hunting them down. Will they survive? You'll have to watch to find out.

Just like many other Asking Alexandria songs, “The Violence” is a hard hitting anthem with thunderous drums and deep bass, this song will have you amped start to finish.

Guitarist Ben Bruce says of the song and accompanying video:

"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."

Continuing from this, frontman Danny 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 will debut the song live on their upcoming tour with Papa Roach and Bad Wolves on the “Who Can You Trust?” tour.
