The UK is very well known for breaking some of rock´s most influential acts of all- time and as of 2011 you can add ASKING ALEXANDRIA´s name to this already illustrious list. In Sept. 2009, this British sensation unleashed their debut album, Stand Up and Scream, upon North America and the disc quickly sent shockwaves throughout the metal/hard rock underground scene. This was a propulsive blend of aggressive music with hints of European Trance, soft catchy melodies resulting in a sound more mature than just your average play by numbers hardcore outfit. This was just the refreshing new sound that people have been waiting for.

ASKING ALEXANDRIA soon embarked on an unrelenting world tour that saw them cover North America a few times over. However, upon testing the waters on their “Welcome To The Circus” headlining U.S. tour the group quickly realized that they were indeed becoming a headlining act. The live arena is where the band excels most as their overly energetic performance and “rock star” look is nothing short of captivating. This is a frenzy of unabashed aggression and intensity that will quickly hook you in and never let up.

The summer of 2010 saw them headline the annual “Thrash and Burn” festival tour and their hype and success following this run quickly afforded them the opportunity to be direct support for All That Remains that fall. This sold-out tour proved that ASKING ALEXANDRIA has truly come of age and are ready to take it to the next level as Stand Up and Scream also broke an astounding 70K copies scanned. Everything is now firing on all cylinders going into the setup for the next album as in late 2010 the band put a huge exclamation point on their worldwide Stand Up and Scream touring cycle with a massive, sold-out headlining UK tour.


In April, 2011 ASKING ALEXANDRIA will release their much anticipated sophomore full-length effort, Reckless and Relentless, which is destined to become one of the year´s most ground-breaking and heralded offerings. The band´s growth and maturity in just a year´s time in astonishing and they will kick off the worldwide touring cycle for this new release with a massive Revolver Magazine sponsored North American headlining run throughout March/April with Emmure, Chiodos, Miss May I and Evergreen Terrace in the support slots. Reckless and Relentless was already hailed by Alternative Press as "One of The Most Anticipated Releases of 2011."
