Asking Alexandria Planning Fall Tour Of The U.S.

Asking Alexandria

(TeamRock Radio) Asking Alexandria have a U.S. headline tour penned in for this autumn, Ben Bruce confirms. The metalcore outfit have a number of festival appearances scheduled over the coming months before they kick off their American trek later this year.

They're promoting their latest album The Black - their first with vocalist Denis Stoff - which launched in March. Guitarist Bruce admits the band were advised not to stream their album on Spotify following its release to maximize record sales - but they decided it was worth "taking the hit" to get a bigger audience.

He tells AltPress: "We got told to boycott Spotify for the first week or month, and we had to make a decision to say, 'No, we don't want to do that.' While it definitely lessens your album sales - quite a lot - it's still a much wider audience.

"We just wanted to get our album out to as many people as possible. So, to us, it was worth taking the hit with record sales to have people to listen to the record and hopefully enjoy it." Read more here.
