Asking Alexandria Announce U.S. Tour with Sevendust, All that Remains, For Today + Emmure
Asking Alexandria have just unveiled details for a month-long U.S. tour beginning Oct. 25. Along for the ride is Sevendust, All that Remains, For Today and Emmure, creating a group of highly celebrated acts to support Asking Alexandria.
Asking Alexandria have only been around for five years, but they've already acquired a massive fan base comparable to some of metalcore's most successful acts. With the release of their third studio album, 'From Death to Destiny,' on Aug. 6, the band received some of the highest critical acclaim of their career, although Asking Alexandria are not without their naysayers.
In a new interview with Kill Your Stereo, Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce discussed moving past the band's "rookie" years. "I think it’s very, very difficult to throw not just five guys, but we’ve got 13 people touring with us," begins Bruce. "It has taken us a long time to figure out, and countless fights and near break-ups to realize it’s very important when you’re a touring musician to respect people’s boundaries and give people space. Because when you’re touring around the world together and you’re right under each other’s feet 24 hours a day, however many days a year, it gets very stressful and you end up at each other’s throats. The biggest thing I’ve learnt just as a person touring with other touring people is you have to give people their space otherwise it just sort of crumbles and there won’t be a band anymore."
