With less than two weeks until the release of their highly anticipated new album, Asking Alexandria has premiered another new song from the record. On Wednesday (March 16), the English band unleashed the fifth track from the new album, “Here I Am.” Compared to previously released tracks, “Let it Sleep” and “The Black,” “Here I Am” is a little more on the mellow side, or as mellow as you can get when your band is classified as “metalcore.” Check out the new song below.
“Here I Am” will join previously released tracks “Let it Sleep,” “I Won’t Give In,” “Undivided,” and title track “The Black” on the group’s fourth studio record, The Black. The Black is set to be released on March 25 through Sumerian Records. Pre-orders for the album are currently available on the band’s website.
In support of the new record, the band will hit the road once again this spring for a slew of tour dates as well as a couple of rock-centric music festivals. The trek will kick off in late April at Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville, FL and its sister festival, Fort Rock in Fort, Myers, FL. Their North American trek will then wrap up on May 29 at the River City Rockfest in San Antonio, TX.
Earlier this year, Asking Alexandria hit the road alongside Bullet for my Valentine for the Welsh band’s “The British Invasion” tour. The list of upcoming tour dates can be seen below.
