Ben Bruce Says Asking Alexandria Are “Done” With Their New Album

During a recent interview with KCAL 96.7, Asking Alexandria’s Ben Bruce revealed that the band have completed work on their new album and that they are currently battling with their label about releasing it. However, the guitarist also added that he thinks “it shouldn’t be too long.”

Bruce said the following:

“It’s done. It’s ready to go. I could release it tomorrow. It’s done, we’re ready. Our label, most labels want you to keep spitting out new music so they can make money, but our label is doing the opposite. They want us to take more singles from the self-titled to radio. That’s just boring. I don’t want to spend time on a single that I wrote three years ago or two years ago. I’m ready to put new music out into the world.

That’s a battle we’re having with our label right now, but I think we’re coming to the end of that battle and I think we’ve figured out when we’re going to release the record, and it shouldn’t be too long. I’m just waiting to pull the trigger. The self-titled album did so much for us as a band. We almost reinvented ourselves and took our career to a whole new level and it’s been really good.”

This news comes after Asking Alexandria previously released a single titled “The Violence” in July.

Asking Alexandria Premiere Music Video For New Song “The Violence”

Asking Alexandria have premiered a new video for their new song “The Violence.” You can check that out below:

Ben Bruce commented:

“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.”

Danny Worsnop added:

“‘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!”

“Simply put, Vultures means the world to us. We wrote this song at a time that was completely volatile in AA’s relationship.

I hope you enjoy this visual as much as I have enjoyed creating it.

Much love, Ben.”

“It was two years ago today that we announced my return to @askingalexandria. That time has flown by. It feels like it were yesterday that I walked into the studio with @benjaminpaulbruce and @mattg00d to write what became the most successful record of our career to date. We went out on huge tours with @shinedown, @godsmack, and a co-headliner with @blackveilbrides. We celebrated hit singles with Into The Fire and Alone In A Room. We’ve laughed, we’ve cried, and we’ve bled… more importantly we’ve figured out what’s next. We’re jumping right back in to work on a new album, a new chapter, and a new future for @askingalexandria.”
