Asking Alexandria Team Up With Slander & Crankdat For New Song “Kneel Before Me”

Asking Alexandria have teamed up with EDM artists Slander and Crankdat for a new song called “Kneel Before Me.” You can check that out below:

Asking Alexandria commented on Twitter:

“We’ve teamed up with @SlanderOfficial and @crankdat to take trance/EDM and metal/rock genres to a whole new level. This is heavy, ballsy and unapologetically in your fucking face! These two worlds have just collided like never before. Enjoy! #KNEELBEFOREME.”

Slander also told EDM.com the following about the track:

“In high school indie rock and hardcore music were some of the first sounds we ever dove into as teenagers. Bands like Avenge Sevenfold, Underoath, Taking Back Sunday and Asking Alexandria, could be heard blaring from our car speakers in our respective high school parking lots. This kind of music is in our core and is where a lot of our other tastes developed from, so if you can imagine we where thrilled when Asking Alexandria agreed to be a part of our new song with Crankdat! Our goal with this song was to make our own rendition of hardcore music with dubstep at its core, essentially bringing our musical roots into 2018! Hope you guys dig it!”

Watch Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop Propose To His Girlfriend Mid-Set

During Asking Alexandria’s set at the EST Fest V in Butler, Ohio, frontman Danny Worsnop proposed to his girlfriend Victoria Potter onstage. You can see footage of that below. Worsnop said the following about the moment:

“Yesterday I took a little detour in our show to do something that’s been on my mind for a long time now. This woman has carried me through so much. She taught me to open up, to let love in, to be vulnerable, and to be true to myself. She has loved me through my crazy and my quiet, when I’m the hardest to love. She holds me when I break, and pushes me when I don’t think I’m enough. Because of her I wake up every day a better man than I was the day before. She will never know just how special she is to me, or just how much love I have for her… but that isn’t going to stop me from doing everything I can to show her for the rest of our lives. She is my angel and I’m never letting go. I am the luckiest and happiest man in the world. The song is called Angels, and will be coming out very soon along with the rest of this video. Keep yer peepers peeled! (thank you @sanjayparikhphoto and @chadmartel for capturing this moment)”

Asking Alexandria Share Video For Acoustic Version Of “Someone, Somewhere”

Asking Alexandria have shared a new video for an acoustic version of “Someone, Somewhere” in honor of Memorial Day. You can check that out below:

Danny Worsnop commented:

“Earlier this year Ben and I remade a song about the hardships of being away from our loved ones on tour, to dedicate and show our appreciation to the incredible service men and women, active, veteran, and lost, around the world.

Then, we flew over to Okinawa to spend some time with the troops stationed there and put on a show. The whole trip was filmed by Sanjay Parikh, and he pieced it all together into this video.

Thank you to all of you out there currently serving. Keep fighting the good fight and come back home safe. Thank you to our veterans, for your blood, your sweat, and your tears that allow us the freedoms and security that we often take for granted.

And most of all, thank you to all of the fallen hero’s, who made the ultimate sacrifice for this country, and the missions of strangers within it. Today is their day. Take time to remember and honor them.”

The story continues ladies and gentlemen, thank you all so much for helping our new album continue to grow into what we feel is our most exciting and daring record to date!”

Concert Review: Black Veil Brides, Asking Alexandria, & Crown The Empire In San Francisco, CA

On March 1, I attended the Black Veil Brides, Asking Alexandria, and Crown The Empire show at The Warfield in San Francisco, CA and it was a great show.

Crown The Empire opened the concert with an energetic performance. The band played a mix of songs from all three of their albums, offering a bit of variety. The music was slightly overpowering Andy Leo’s vocals, but other than that they were pretty much on point. A highlight from their set was their final track “Machines.”

Next, Asking Alexandria took the stage for an insane performance. The band opened with “Into The Fire” and from there they basically played a balance of new and old songs. It was cool to see Danny Worsnop back in the group, and his voice seemed to be even more powerful than it was in the past. The chemistry between him and the other members, especially guitarist Ben Bruce, was great as well. Highlights from their performance included: “To The Stage,” “The Final Episode (Let’s Change the Channel),” a mini acoustic set featuring “Vultures” and “Someone, Somewhere,” and their encore songs “Moving On” and “The Death Of Me.”

After Asking Alexandria, it was time for Black Veil Brides. The band kicked things off with “Faithless” before transitioning to “Coffin.” The group pretty much stuck to older material with a couple of songs from their latest album “Vale” thrown in for good measure. Between Jake Pitts and Jinxx’s impressive guitar work, Christian “CC” Coma’s thunderous drumming, Ashley Purdy’s bass lines, and frontman Andy Biersack’s robust vocals, they were pretty much solid on all fronts. Hell, even Jinxx’s violin skills were a sight to see. Highlights from their set included “I Am Bulletproof,” “Rebel Love Song,” “The Legacy,” “Knives And Pens” and their three sing encore which featured “Perfect Weapon,” “Fallen Angels,” and “In The End.”
