Then, they gave fans the first snippet of new music with the premiere of their lyric video for “They Don’t Want What We Want (And They Don’t Care).”
Now, they’re revealing details for the new album.
They’re once again recording with producer Matt Good (Hollywood Undead, From First To Last), who also produced the band’s self-titled release.
Guitarist Ben Bruce offers a statement on the new album which you can read below.
“We have been working our asses off for the last couple of years on creating this album. We are absolutely in love with what we have created. There are songs about triumph, strength and resilience. There are songs about losing love, losing passion and losing faith. There are songs about moving on to new things and songs celebrating our journey. This album is filled with love and passion from the five original members of Asking Alexandria.”
He further elaborates on the new track, saying it’s a song for anyone frustrated with the world.
“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! Enjoy!”
