The new Asking Alexandria music video for the track "Killing You" - written by Ash Avildsen and directed by Frankie Nasso - can now be viewed below.
The track comes off the group's new album, "From Death To Destiny," and don't miss the band on tour headlining the U.S. through the end of November with All That Remains, Sevendust, Emmure and For Today.
On October 29th at the storied War Memorial Auditorium in Nashville, TN, a rather unusual tour lineup shook things up a bit. Asking Alexandria rolled in, bringing All That Remains with them, along with the veterans of Sevendust, as well as the younger For Today and Emmure. If the lineup didn’t involve Sevendust or All That Remains, it would have made more sense. All That Remains wasn’t stretching it, really, but including Sevendust with this largely metalcore bunch? I scratched my head at that choice.
It was a bizarre experience. More...
