Asking Alexandria: new song 'The Death Of Me' available for streaming
"The Death Of Me", a brand new song from the British metalcore act Asking Alexandria, can be streamed in the YouTube clip below. The track comes off the band's third album, "From Death To Destiny", which will be released this summer via Sumerian Records. The Cd was recorded with renowned producer Joey Sturgis (The Devil Wears Prada, Emmure).

In a recent interview with Billboard.com, Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce revealed that the follow-up to 2011's "Reckless & Relentless" will contain 13-15 songs, six of which will be "radio-friendly" while the rest will be "our usual balls-to-the-wall kind of stuff."

"We spent a long time honing in on song structures and writing techniques and stuff like that, but there are still heavy songs on the record," Bruce said. "We're not just going to throw that away and kick our original fan base in the teeth by getting rid of all that. There will still be a lot of riffing and screaming. But we feel like we did find a happy medium between being heavy and then being light enough to be on radio, but still keeping the balls in the song."

Most of the new Cd was recorded at Sturgis' studio in Indiana, while the vocals and strings and choir parts were laid down at Nrg Recording Studios in North Hollywood, California. "On the last one a lot of that extra stuff was all fake; we did it on computer," Bruce said. "This time we wanted to be more organic, so we got a live orchestra conducted by the brilliant Stevie Black (Alice In Chains, Avenged Sevenfold) and did all the strings. Then we got a live church gospel choir to come into the studio for a few days to sing over a few tracks. It really sounds special."

Asking Alexandria's remix record, "Stepped Up And Scratched", came out in November 2011.

Asking Alexandria is:

Danny Worsnop - Vocals
Ben Bruce - Guitar
Cameron Liddell - Guitar
Sam Bettley - Bass
James Cassells - Drums
