With their upcoming full-length studio album set to release this fall through Better Noise Music, Asking Alexandria has made a triumphant return with the powerful track ‘Dark Void.’ The song encompasses both melancholy and hope, capturing the essence of everyday life in today’s world. While still incorporating their signature anthemic stadium rock sound, the band also pays homage to their metalcore roots.
“With the world seemingly getting darker and darker, it’s easy to see why so many of us struggle with anxiety, depression, loneliness,” relays guitarist Ben Bruce. “This song is about fighting those demons that live in your head and trying your hardest to be your own savior. Finding that inner strength to pull yourself out of the darkness.”
“This theme is explored throughout the entirety of our upcoming album. We all have our own struggles and hurdles. We are all on our own journeys that present unique challenges and difficulties, but we all have our own inner strength to fall back on. There is always light at the end of the tunnel. I feel that there can be comfort in knowing that we aren’t alone. We all feel a little down from time to time. We all feel a little lost from time to time, but somehow, in some way, we are all in this together and hopefully our new album can help people through some of their toughest times.”
