Asking Alexandria Unleash ‘Let It Sleep’ Music Video
England's biggest metalcore export Asking Alexandria are inching closer to the release of the fourth full length effort, The Black. It will be the first to feature new vocalist Denis Stoff, who replaced Danny Worsnop in May of 2015. The band has already released three cuts from the album and the fourth comes by way of the music video for "Let it Sleep."
The video opens panning over the band's rehearsal space, littered with torn, hanging cloths, gear and various belongings scattered in the brick-walled room. After about 30 seconds of guitar work drenched in effects, Stoff swings his arm across his body and the band rips into "Let it Sleep" with frenetic energy. The songwriting is among the most complex Asking Alexandria have laid down to date, bouncing between melodic rhythms, sudden temp changes with earth-heaving chugs and anthemic, arena-oriented refrains.
Guitarist and founder Ben Bruce commented on "Let it Sleep", stating, "Everyone has their inner demons. Everyone has their own mental fights they have to deal with. Don't let them consume you. Let them serve as a reminder that things could always be worse. Fight your inner demons and find your inner peace."
Asking Alexandria will be wrapping up the first leg of the 'British Invasion' tour, opening for fellow countrymen Bullet for My Valentine. The second leg of the tour, which is bookended by festival appearances, will kick off on April 30 at Welcome to Rockville in Jacksonville, Fla. and extend all the way through May 29 where they will close it out at the River City Rockfest in San Antonio, Texas.
