Asking Alexandria return to Belfast to play The Ulster Hall on 28th October 2014 and Dublin Olympia on Wed 29 Oct 2014. Special Guests The Ghost Inside, Crown The Empire & Secrets will join them on their UK dates. August 2013 marked an extremely monumental milestone in the history of ASKING ALEXANDRIA and their label Sumerian Records. The band’s highly acclaimed new album, From Death To Destiny, officially debuted at #5 on the Billboard Top 200 charts with 41,082 units sold. This achievement not only marks the group’s highest charting debut ever, but also Sumerian Records’ highest first-week sales to date. They also graced the covers of Alternative Press and Guitar World, a huge accomplishment in today’s fickle media world. Tickets for the Belfast show are on sale now from all usual outlets.
They will spend the fall of 2013 on the road as direct support to Korn across North America and then cap off the year with a huge headliner with Sevendust, All That Remains, For Today and Emmure in the support slots.
To say that 2012 was a breakout year for the UK’s ASKING ALEXANDRIA would be a massive understatement as the group headlined massive, sold-out European and North American tours, which was capped off with a slot on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival emerging as one of the fest’s most talked about artists.
Amidst a slew of recent speculation regarding their stability, ASKING ALEXANDRIA, undoubtedly proved to all naysayers that they are one of the genre’s most exciting, ground-breaking and heralded artists as their critically acclaimed new album, Reckless and Relentless, debuted at #9 on the Billboard Top 200 charts scanning an impressive 31,449 units. This was the point where the band started to gain major, mainstream attention.
The album’s stunning debut quickly caught the attention of mainstream media across the globe resulting in their national television debut on the ABC late-night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” They spent the summer of 2011 on the Warped Tour mainstage and emerged as one of the festival’s most talk about performers. Throughout this timeframe they also graced the covers of such major publications as Alternative Press, Guitar World and Kerrang!
This is controversial, unapologetic hard rock at its very finest and you ain’t seen nothing yet.
