Asking Alexandria have released a video for their brand new single The Violence.

It’s the first material from Danny Worsnop, Ben Bruce, Cameron Liddell, James Cassells and Sam Bettley since their 2017 self-titled album.

The zombie-inspired shoot was directed by Jensen Noen and produced by Sam Malko, Brand Birtwistle and Joe Grayem through Scissor Films.

Guitarist Bruce says: "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."

Asking Alexandria have been teasing the release over the past week, with the promo launching ahead of their upcoming US tour with Papa Roach and Bad Wolves.

Those dates will get under way in Dallas on July 27 and wrap up in Las Vegas on September 1.
