Currently in the midst of a headlining tour spanning Europe, the U.K. and Russia, the U.K.-basedrockband will circle back to North America
for atour starting Nov. 28 in Tucson, AZ and wrapping Dec. 20 in Wilmington, DC (dates below).
Produced by Joey Sturgis and mixed by veteran rock radio kingmaker David
Bendeth (Breaking Benjamin, Paramore, Of Mice & Men), FROM DEATH TO DESTINY fully embraces the high-flying sonic excess of Mötley Crüe, the dark electro of the pre-EDM era and the audio growl of the harder edged bands they discovered as teenagers.
ASKING ALEXANDRIA-DANNY WORSNOP (lead vocals), BEN BRUCE (lead guitars), CAMERON LIDDELL (guitars), SAM BETTLEY (bass) and JAMES CASSELLS (drums)-represent everything exciting and altogether invigorating about the hardest hitting rock n' roll, both past and present. The group incorporates the modern hard rock sensibilities with the celebratory melodic spirit of the giant hooks of the '80s, the expert songwriting of the '90s and the unashamedly aggressive brutality of modern Millennium
bravado. The electro-tinged and always unhinged miscreants have arrived armed with musical weapons owing as much to Skid Row and Guns N' Roses
as Korn and Killswitch Engage. After spending all summer on the Rockstar Energy
Drink Mayhem Festival with Avenged Sevenfold, Korn, Body Count (featuring Ice-T), Cannibal Corpse, Trivium, Miss May I, Mushroomhead, Suicide Silence
and many more, the stage has been set both literally and figuratively for an even larger commercial breakthrough.
"The album's more grown-up sound gives them a newfound accessibility that is sure to open them up to a whole new audience hungry for some new heavy jams."- ALL MUSIC
"blurs the lines between solipsism and sociopathy, hedonism and nihilism, even as it throws metalcore, electronic music and a healthy dose of hair metal into a blender set on 'awesome.'" -ALTERNATIVE PRESS.
