Asking Alexandria have announced details of their new studio album.

The follow-up to their 2017 self-titled record is called Like A House On Fire – and it’ll launch on May 15 through Sumerian Records.

Guitarist Ben Bruce says: "We have been working our asses off for the last couple of years on creating this album. We are absolutely in love with what we have created. 

“There are songs about triumph, strength and resilience. There are songs about losing love, losing passion and losing faith. 

“There are songs about moving on to new things and song’s celebrating our journey. This album is filled with love and passion from the five original members of Asking Alexandria."

To mark the announcement, Asking Alexandria have released a video for the track Antisocialist.

Bruce explains: “Antisocialist is a song written for everyone who just wants to stick their middle fingers up high in the air and scream at the top of their lungs.

“It’s a song for the frustrated, the forgotten, the unappreciated and the downtrodden. It’s a song for those who work hard and receive nothing in return. It’s a song for those who dream hard and are laughed at. 

“A song that says what we all feel from time to time and a song to just let loose to! Enjoy!"

Like A House On Fire will also include the singles They Don't Want What We Want and The Violence.

Asking Alexandria recently announce a US tour with Falling In Reverse, Wage War and Hyro The Hero. Find further details below.
