An awful lot going on there.

13. In My Blood
14. The Violence

Alongside the announcement, there's a video of 'Antisocialist'

Guitarist Ben Bruce had this to say about the song:

"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!"

It follows the previously released 'They Don't Want What We Want (And They Don't Care)' which sounds like this:

We recently spoke to vocalist Danny Worsnop about what we could expect from the new album. 

This is what he had to say:

"I think that we’ve created the album that we’ve been trying to make for our entire career - we’ve finally accumulated all of the tools and pieces that were needed to be able to create what we’ve done with this album. It’s by far the most special piece of work that we’ve put together as a band. In typical Asking Alexandria fashion, it’s different.

"We’ve been trying to figure out the best way to describe it, and what we’ve fallen on is that it’s somewhere between the self-titled record and ‘From Death To Destiny’. We’ve taken the aggression of ‘From Death To Destiny’ where there was still the frustrations and internal angst, and we’ve mixed it with the passion and drive of the ‘Asking Alexandria’ album.

"We’ve written a lot of songs. We got to the point where we said, ‘okay which songs are going on this’ and we ended up going ‘fuck it, put them all on there’. So we’ve done that - we’ve put everything on there. There are no B-sides, there’s nothing that didn’t make the cut. There’s going to be songs where people are going to listen and say ‘I don’t know why they put that song on here’, and that’s fine. That’s the point, because there are going to be people who will say ‘That’s my favourite song’ about the same thing. Everybody is going to connect to at least one song on there."
