Asking Alexandria channel ‘The Black’ cover art for new video


It’s been two months since Asking Alexandria released their fourth studio album, The Black, and now the group has released the music video for their latest single. On Wednesday (May 25), the United Kingdom-founded band released the video for “Here I Am,” one of the handful of tracks they streamed before the official release of The Black. The video begins with a shot of the sun streaming through some trees in black-and-white and a quote from founding member, Ben Bruce.

The images change to someone walking towards some woods and cuts to the back of a little girl’s head. From there, the actual clip kicks off to the band performing in an open field, with some random woods in the far back. During the video, footage of the little girl exploring the wood are intercut with the band performing in the field. While exploring the woods, the girl runs into this creature which happens to be the creature on the cover of The Black.

During the video, the members of Asking Alexandria are seen holding torches as they walk a dark, dirt path. Behind them, there is a group of people who look like they are part of a search party. Are they looking for the little girl who may be lost in the woods? Watch the complete video for “Here I Am” below.

The Black was released back in March through Sumerian Records. In support of the album, Asking Alexandria have been busy on the road. At the moment, they are wrapping up the last couple of days of their current tour. Tonight (May 25), they will perform at the War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville while on Friday, May 27, they will perform at Rocklahoma in Pryor Creek, OK and on Sunday, May 29, they will hit the stage at River City Rockfest.

Asking Alexandria release “Here I Am”


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.
