ASKING ALEXANDRIA will release their eighth full-length studio album, “Where Do We Go From Here?”, on August 25 via Better Noise Music
The 11-track effort was produced and mixed by Matt Good (HOLLYWOOD UNDEAD, FROM FIRST TO LAST) and mastered by Howie Weinberg (DEFTONES, METALLICA) and Will Borza. The album is a culmination of ASKING ALEXANDRIA‘s career, melding the band’s flagship sound with experimental electronics while its lyrics cover the group’s trademark themes of disenchantment, loss, anxiety, and dejection.
ASKING ALEXANDRIA guitarist Ben Bruce states: “‘Where Do We Go From Here?’ is the culmination of our entire journey as a band. We worked really hard to incorporate every aspect of what our fans love about ASKING ALEXANDRIA. We have taken elements from every single record we have ever written and pieced them all together to create one album.
Our fans will find elements from ‘Stand Up And Scream’, such as the synth-tinged breakdown on ‘Things Could Be Different’, all the way through to ‘See What’s On The Inside’ on this album. Lyrically, the album explores themes of loss and struggle through to hope and finding your own inner strength. We are incredibly proud of this album, and we can’t wait for everyone to hear it.”
