Asking Alexandria’s Sam Bettley escapes van crash


Asking Alexandria bassist Sam Bettley says he’s lucky to be alive after walking away from a van crash.

He lost control of his rental GMC when a tyre burst, forcing the vehicle into a roll.

Bettley reports: “Tyre blew out on me, causing me to lose control and flip the truck. Everything I own has been destroyed, but at least I walked away without a scratch. Grateful.”

Asking Alexandria release The Black, their first album featuring vocalist Denis Stoff, on March 25. They’ve lined up two UK warm-up shows ahead of their Reading and Leeds appearances in August.
