Asking Alexandria will lead a North American tour marking the 10th anniversary of Sumerian Records’ formation.

Their first full-scale Stateside road trip with Denis Stoff sees them accompanied by labelmates Born Of Osiris, I See Stars, After The Burial, Upon A Burning Body and Bad Omens.

The announcement comes after Asking Alexandria were forced to cancel a planned US appearance after Stoff encountered “immigration issues.”

Guitarist Ben Bruce says: “I can’t remember the last time I was this excited for a tour. We couldn’t be more proud to headline such a pivotal tour package and to celebrate the music Sumerian has released.

“The tour will include our biggest production to date – this is going to be something incredibly special.”

Sumerian boss Ash Avildsen adds: “To see the celebration of a decade of Sumerian culminate with this tour is a true reflection of the communal spirit and vision that this label was built upon. This will be the most progressive and interactive tour we have ever done.”

Asking Alexandria are touring in support of The Black, their first album since Stoff replaced Danny Worsnop last year. Their current run ends at the Reading and Leeds festivals in the UK next month.
