In a recent interview, Ben Bruce teased that the songs are ready to be recorded—and that they have a few huge touring opportunities—so we’re excited to see what this June 1 date might mean.
“The whole album's written and is ready to be recorded properly,” Bruce says. “And then we have some huge touring opportunities in the works that we are working on right now, so it's going to be exciting.”
Last month, Ben Bruce talked with Finland's Kaaos TV about Danny Worsnop’s return to the band and, even more excitingly, the band’s new record. Bruce didn't give too much away regarding their new music.
However, he did explain that this record was namely written in the studio, and with a new album in the works, we can only hope for a tour soon.
“We're holding our cards close to our chest right now,” Bruce says. “We're not gonna give too much away. Obviously, that was music that we had written. Whether it makes the album or not, we'll see.”
“We used to write on the road,” Bruce explains. “But this album, though, I actually went into a studio. I spent months in the studio with [producer] Matt Good and wrote the album. I was, like, 'This has to be better than anything we've ever, ever written.' So I spent months locked away in the studio, all night, all day. I used to go into the studio at lunchtime and not get home until lunchtime the next day. And my baby would already be awake, and I'd be, like, 'Damn, I need to go to bed for a bit.' For months, I was on that brutal schedule. But it's been worth it.”
The first episode of Ben Bruce’s Daddy Diaries also featured some behind-the-scenes footage of Bruce, Worsnop and From First To Last's Matt Good in the recording studio, so we’ve been keeping our ears open for new music.
And last October, we got this teaser for a new song that we’re still waiting to hear:
Mixing an amazing new asking Alexandria song at the moment featuring the return of Danny, who absolutely crushed the vocals. Damn damn
