Asking Alexandria tracks Into The Fire and When The Lights Come On have been selected as official themes for WWE’s upcoming NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia.

The event will take place on January 27 at the city’s Wells Fargo Center and feature some of the top NXT superstars – and the songs from Asking Alexandria’s 2017 self-titled fifth album will be played throughout.

The news was confirmed on Twitter by NXT founder Triple H, who says: “So loud, one song wasn’t enough. Asking Alexandria is NXT Loud and gives us the official theme songs for NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia.”

The album was the band’s first with returning vocalist Danny Worsnop since 2013’s From Death To Destiny.

Asking Alexandria will begin their US tour in support of the new album later tonight, with a set at The Fillmore Auditorium, Denver. Find a full list of their upcoming live shows below.

In August last year, Code Orange’s Bleeding In The Blur and Creeper’s Poison Pens featured inNXT Takeover: Brooklyn.
