As Aiden move on to the final chapter of their Last Sunrise tour—the band's final run—we took some time with frontman William Francis to celebrate Aiden history with a guitar tutorial for one of their most iconic songs: “Die Romantic.” The song was one of three singles from Nightmare Anatomy (which, by the way, is being played in full on that tour I mentioned earlier), and was many fans' first introduction to the band.

In this tutorial, Francis takes you through both guitar parts and shares the secret to achieving Aiden's raw sound for yourself.

“I just fucking plug my shit into the amp, and if it sounds crunchy, let's rock,” he says. “Just plug the guitar into the amp and turn the gain up. That's all you need to do.”
