Asking Alexandria are back with a new single and music video.
Ahead of their eighth studio album, due out later this year, the band have released the anthemic and defiant track ‘Dark Void’.
Watch the music video below:
On writing the song, Ben Bruce said “With the world seemingly getting darker and darker, it’s easy to see why so many of us struggle with anxiety, depression, loneliness. This song is about fighting those demons that live in your head and trying your hardest to be your own savior. Finding that inner strength to pull yourself out of the darkness.”
He added that the themes discussed in the lyrics will be continued throughout the rest of the album, saying “We all have our own struggles and hurdles. We are all on our own journeys that present unique challenges and difficulties, but we all have our own inner strength to fall back on. There is always light at the end of the tunnel. I feel that there can be comfort in knowing that we aren’t alone. We all feel a little down from time to time. We all feel a little lost from time to time, but somehow, in some way, we are all in this together and hopefully our new album can help people through some of their toughest times.”
Asking Alexandria will return to the UK next month when they perform as part of Download Festival’s 20th anniversary event.
