British rock luminaries Asking Alexandria have spent the past 15 years garnering two #1 albums, four RIAA Gold-certified singles and a #1 Active Rock radio-charting single among several Top 10-landing hits.

The band have established themselves as one of the most important rock groups of this generation through years of hard touring, supporting massive bands like Breaking Benjamin, Shinedown, Slipknot, Godsmack, and Korn; co-headlining with Nothing More and Black Veil Brides and later this month The HU; and headlining multiple head-turning treks, breathlessly reported on in numerous magazine cover stories.

Their new album "Where Do We Go From Here?" offers reverence to touchstone icons like Led Zeppelin, AC/DC, and Queen, with a relentless urgency harkening back to their early days as hard-partying Warped Tour upstarts. It’s available now via digital download or physically on CD, cassette, or multiple color vinyl at

Produced and mixed by Matt Good (Hollywood Undead, From First To Last), and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Deftones, Metallica) and Will Borza. The album is a culmination of the band’s career, melding their flagship sound with experimental electronics while its lyrics cover the band’s trademark themes of disenchantment, loss, anxiety, and dejection. Its first official radio single “Psycho” was launched in June alongside the heavy-hitting track “Bad Blood.” “Psycho” was the #1 Most Added and #1 Most Increased Played Track at Active Rock radio for two consecutive weeks and is currently charting in the Top 10 at #7. It followed the May release of WHERE DO WE GO FROM HERE?’s debut track “Dark Void” which has over 1.6 million video views and more than 10 million streams to date.

Asking Alexandria kicked off the “Psycho Thunder” co-headlining United States tour with Mongolian rock sensation The Hu and support from Zero 9:36. The tour stretches through October 8 and ends in Los Angeles, California, encompassing performances at some of fall’s largest rock festivals including Blue Ridge Rock Festival, Rocklahoma, and Louder Than Life.

Asking Alexandria have announced an initiative to help combat hunger inequalities by partnering with a local food bank in each city on the “Psycho Thunder” tour and are requesting that fans attending the shows bring a non-perishable food item to donate which will be collected at identified locations at each venue. Following the shows, donations will be collected by local food banks to help those in need in the local community as the colder months in the calendar approach.
Fan reviews:

Ever since high school I’ve wanted to see these guys. I am so thankful o got to see them and talk to them. They’re so sweet and really nice guys. They’re the reason I started ‘screamo’ screaming.

Great show! Had an amazing performance, very lively atmosphere would recommend and would definitely go again and again.

One of the best shows I have been to in years, hope I can catch them again during the next tour!

Asking Alexandria was awesome to see!
