The track is taken from the upcoming "Stepped Up and Scratched" remix album, which is set for a November 21st release, with full details available here.
Asking Alexandria's remix record, "Stepped Up and Scratched," has finally arrived and is now officially set for a November 21st release. The disc features remixes from such names as Borgore, Celldweller, Born of Osiris, Big Chocolate, Tomba and more. Click here to check out the "Stepped Up and Scratched" pre-order packages.
The group kicks off a co-headlining North American tour alongside Hollywood Undead on Nov. 1st with Borgore, We Came As Romans ,and D.R.U.G.S. Immediately following this tour the group will join forces with Avenged Sevenfold for a series of dates to wrap-up the year. Be sure to head over to the band's Facebook profile now to view their entire tour itinerary.
Ben Bruce (guitars) states: “Finally, after months of gossip and hype it is here! Stepped Up and Scratched has arrived. It's the only remix album worth buying, haha. Stepped Up and Scratched was a concept we came up with about three years ago while recording Stand Up and Scream. We are all into a lot of different kinds of music (rock, pop, blues, swing, dance, house, electro etc.), so stepping out of our comfort zone is something we are used to. Stepped Up and Scratched is proof of that. This album is a representation of this band as an artist, not just as a metal band. It is full of great remixes that would be perfect in a club/rave setting or at home just to party to. Not only is Stepped up and Scratched a predominantly electronic album, but we decided we wanted to keep it heavy and be different so you will find a lot of the actual music has been left in to the mixes making it a really unique listen and a completely fresh sound/feel. We had a lot of fun working on this record along side the many talented DJ's that appear on the album. Check it out as its really an album to just get wild to. Enjoy!
"North America, we are back baby. No more rules, no more waiting and no more bullshit. We are fucking back and we are coming back hard. This is going to be our most uncompromising and crazy live show yet. We won't stop until everyone knows our name. We won't stop until this music kills us. The WWIII tour with Hollywood Undead is the start of a new era. It's the start of something special. We are stronger, louder, harder and more determined than ever. This tour is about all of us. Lets have the time of our lives. See you all there.”
Asking Alexandria has posted a new live music video online for "Not The American Average," which was shot at Epicenter 2011 in Irvine, CA at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheater. You can check out the clip below.
