Asking Alexandria will be releasing their brand new album, The Black on March 25. You can read all about that right here, but the details for the album are not the only thing that are being talked about right now.
The title track, "The Black" has its own music video and can be seen below.
Warning: Watch the video below before reading on. There will be spoilers!
The video is done entirely in black and white, and appears to depict someone going a bit insane. The song leads you to believe that one person who once meant a lot to you is now the reason you're not alright.
You see someone spreading what appears to be blood all over their body, along with flashes of flames and smoke, a cross, and a wide open field. It all seems to symbolize insanity, when pulled together with the band performing.
The song is a bit heavier than some of Asking Alexandria's more recent releases, and hopefully fans are going to love it. Something we in particular love is when guitarist, Benjamin Bruce steps in to sing a verse. His voice has always been a very beautiful touch to Asking Alexandria's music and it seems to piece together the song very nicely.
"You make me feel like a fucking joke. I need to cut you out." We may never know exactly who this song is about, but we quite like the sound of the song.
Its quite the hard hitting song, and you can tell it came straight from the heart. It makes us very excited to hear the album, which comes out on March 25, 2016.
Before and after the album's release, fans all over the world can catch Asking Alexandria live. They are on tour now through March 11 all around the US with Bullet For My Valentine and While She Sleeps. They then head on over to Australia to perform with Blessthefall and Buried in Venom until they come back to the US in late April / early May to play many of the massive festivals. Those festivals include Welcome To Rockville, Fort Rock, Carolina Rebellion, Northern Invasion, and Rock On The Range. Head on over to the festival websites for further information, or Asking's website for the tour dates.
These are just some of the happenings in the music world. There will always be something that Immortal Music did not cover, but here are just some events.
