It’s been a record-breaking week for Asking Alexandra. Their new disc ‘From Death to Destiny’ debuted on Billboard’s Top 200 chart in the No. 5 position making it the band’s highest charting debut to date. That’s not all though, the album also marked a few firsts for their label Sumerian Records, chalking up the label’s highest first-week sales to date with 41,082 units sold.
As Asking Alexandria gear up to release their new disc ‘From Death to Destiny' on Aug. 6 via Sumerian Records, the band is already planning for the future with a monstrous North American Tour run in the works. The trek will mark their biggest headlining U.S. tour to date and will feature quite a lineup of heavy hitters from the rock and metal genres.
Asking Alexandria are gearing up to release their third album, 'From Death to Destiny,' on Aug. 6, but before then you can catch the band performing on 'Guitar Center Sessions' this Friday, July 12, at 9PM ET / 10PM PT on DirecTV's Audience Network (ch. 239). In anticipation of the program, Loudwire is offering an exclusive premiere of the UK act performing 'To the Stage' from their last album, 'Reckless & Relentless' (watch above).
In a new video posted by Whitechapel’s Phil Bozeman, the frontman takes on the topic of haters in the metal community and specifically how he approaches the negativity aimed at his own band. For example, Whitechapel received a fair amount of hate through social networking after their recent tour with Asking Alexandria and Bozeman addresses this topic head on.
