Hailing from North Yorkshire, metalcore band Asking Alexandria first came onto the scene in 2008.

They signed with Sumerian Records and launched Stand Up and Scream that same year, focusing on building their US presence and touring with other well-respected names such as Enter Shikari.
Life Gone Wild was released in 2010 followed by Reckless and Relentless in 2011, Stepped Up and Scratched in the same year and From Death to Destiny in 2013. The band's music has been described as heavy metal, metalcore, screamo and electronicore, although lead vocalist Danny Worsnop has said himself on Twitter that his biggest inspiration was Aerosmith, followed by Eighties rock and metal bands such as Metallica, Guns n' Roses and Mötley Crüe. They won a Kerrang Award in 2011 for Best British Newcomer and the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards for the best British Breakthrough band in 2013.
Asking Alexandria are also prolific on the live music scene and have toured the world, playing across the USA and Canada, Australia, Europe, New Zealand, Singapore, Japan, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. Currently, they are rumoured to be pursuing a number of enticing musical collaborations and are currently working on new material and continuing their tour dates.
