U.K. metalcore band ASKING ALEXANDRIA has scored its third Top 10 hit at active rock radio as "Alone In A Room" moved up to No. 9 this week. The track is the second single to be taken from the band's eponymous fifth studio album, released last December via Sumerian Records.
To date, "Alone In A Room" has racked up a whopping 13.3 million streams on Spotify, 28 million global streams, 4.9 million YouTube views and spent 5 weeks at No. 1 on SiriusXM's "Big Uns" countdown. Its popularity and chart ascendance show no sign of slowing down.
Speaking on ASKING ALEXANDRIA's latest radio success, guitarist Ben Bruce said: "This has been one of the most exciting and fulfilling album cycles in ASKING ALEXANDRIA's history, and just to keep things interesting, we have only gone and cracked Top 10 at active rock radio. This is such a huge accomplishment and it wouldn't be possible without the INSANE amount of support you have given us. I don't have the words to express how truly grateful I am, so let me just start by saying THANK YOU. We love you."
Combining the innovation of modern active rock with the traditional attitude of the culture's trailblazers. ASKING ALEXANDRIA has now firmly cemented its place in the upper echelons of modern rock. They've shared the stage with GUNS N' ROSES, GREEN DAY, ALICE IN CHAINS, AVENGED SEVENFOLD and SLIPKNOT; co-headlined with BLACK VEIL BRIDES; joined Warped Tour and Rockstar Mayhem; played every major rock festival in the world; and headlined sold-out theater tours. Their singles "The Final Episode" and "Not The American Average" were both certified gold by the RIAA for sales in excess of 500,000 copies each. The music videos for those two singles alone amassed over 100 million views on YouTube. Their third full-length album, "From Death To Destiny" (2013), shot to No. 1 on the rock and metal charts in the U.K. and cracked the Top 5 of the Billboard 200 in the United States upon its release.
ASKING ALEXANDRIA is currently on the road with GODSMACK and SHINEDOWN and will play the Monster Energy Aftershock festival in Sacramento on October 13. On Monday, the band announced that they will join SHINEDOWN and PAPA ROACH for the "Attention Attention" tour in early 2019. Starting in Estero, Florida at the Hertz Arena on February 20, the trek will then go on to play a further 17 arenas across the country, ending in Loveland, Colorado at the Budweiser Events Centre.
