The first day of October marked the highly anticipated arrival of acclaimed British rock group Asking Alexandria’s new full-length studio album “See What’s On The Inside”. The album is the band’s first studio LP since the news of their new global deal with Better Noise Music earlier this year, when they were signed by label president Dan Waite out of the company’s London office.

“See What’s On The Inside” is evidence of the group’s falling back in love with making music together. It is the first collection of songs that the band, today composed of its original line-up, wrote and recorded together in the same room in over a decade. The project is preceded by first single “Alone Again” which was released in August to critical acclaim from the likes of Forbes, NME, Loudwire, and more, and now sits at #9 on BDS Mainstream Rock Airplay Chart, marking it the band’s fastest rise to the top 10 ever in their career. “Alone Again” has not only started a new chapter for the band musically, it has also translated to global success where international streaming has grown to now 66% of their listenership, according to Spotify, accompanied by a worldwide premiere of “You’ve Made it This Far” on BBC Radio 1 in the UK. The new album is now available for purchase, download and streaming across platforms HERE.
Thrilled to be sharing their latest body of work, lead guitarist Ben Bruce said “Our new album See What’s on the Inside was named with the thought process that we would let the album, the songs, and the lyrics speak for themselves. It’s been a hell of a journey to get to this point. Ups and downs, laughter and tears. But here we are, seven albums later, more focused, more passionate and more excited than ever before. Our dear AA Family, it’s finally time to See What’s On the Inside”.
The band celebrated the release of the album by premiering the official music video for second single “Never Gonna Learn”. As they recorded this album together during quarantine, the visual, directed by Wombat Fire, showcases the band performing the song in an intimate setting interspersed with polaroid images of the session.
