British rock band Asking Alexandria will perform in Baltics for the first time to present their latest album "See What's on the Inside."
In addition to headlining packed gigs on five continents, they've graced stages alongside Guns N' Roses, Green Day, Avenged Sevenfold, Alice In Chains, and Slipknot, to name a few. For the latest release "See What's on the Inside", the band pulled inspiration from some of their earliest influences and musical heroes - Led Zeppelin, Metallica, AC/DC, and Queen. Guitarist Ben Bruce has stated:
We do not like writing music that sounds the same from album to album, which is why our musical style has changed over time.
The band's current lead guitarist and backing vocalist, Ben Bruce, started working on Asking Alexandria's music in 2006 and they have established a world of rock music that is completely their own. The UK-based rock band released their first album "Stand Up and Scream" in 2009, followed by seven more albums during the past 13 years. The band's music has mostly been described as metalcore, hard rock, heavy metal, post-hardcore, and screamo.
In the band's 10+ years as a worldwide touring and recording force, they have achieved unprecedented success, marked by two gold-certified singles "Final Episode (Let's Change The Channel)" and "Not The American Average", and three consecutive top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200 - Reckless & Relentless , From Death to Destiny , and The Black .
Composed today of their original line-up, Ben Bruce - guitar, backing vocals, Danny Worsnop - lead vocals, James Cassells - drums, Cameron Liddell - guitar, and Sam Bettley - bass, the quintet has arrived at a place of clarity and refreshed sense of artistic purpose.
