Asking Alexandria’s much-anticipated new album The Black is scheduled to be released this Friday, March 25, but it looks like the band is doing a good job of letting their fans hear the majority of the tracks ahead of time. On Monday (March 21), the British band headed over BBC Radio 1’s The Rock Show With Daniel P. Carter to unleash another new song from the upcoming record. The new song is titled “Send Me Home” and is definitely that one song which may not fit in with all the others that have been released.
There is not a single ounce of screaming/growls or hard instrumentals on the song. It’s definitely a track we can picture being performed inside of an arena with the audience singing it in unison, almost cancelling out the band. Listen to “Send Me Home” here. To get directly to the track, you might need to forward the clip about a minute in.
“Send Me Home” will join previously released tracks, “Here I Am, “Let it Sleep,” “I Won’t Give In,” “Undivided,” and title track “The Black” on the group’s fourth studio album. The Black is set to be released this Friday through Sumerian Records. Pre-orders for the album are currently available on the band’s website, but act fast since the release date is almost here.
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. The second leg of their North American tour can be seen here.
