Asking Alexandria isn’t Afraid to go “Psycho” – new single, music video + more!

Asking Alexandria is back again with quite a few updates–most notably, “Psycho,” the second single from their highly-anticipated album coming out via Better Noise Music later this summer. This new single also comes with a new music video, as well as a second ‘bonus’ track, “Bad Blood.” In addition to the new music, the band also announced a co-headlining tour that kicks off this fall.

The band explains the meaning behind their new song best:

“‘Psycho’ is one of those songs that is talking about when you feel trapped inside your own head, trapped by your own vices and your own downfalls,” explains lead guitarist Ben Bruce. “Whether it’s being stuck in a relationship that doesn’t work for you, or feeling like you can’t stop drinking or doing drugs, or maybe you’re stuck in a job that you hate, and you’re just battling yourself in your own head wondering ‘why am I still here? Why do I keep doing these things?’.”

We all feel a little ‘psycho’ sometimes–and we all know a little bit about how it feels to be running in circles against our better judgement, I’m sure.

Ben Bruce continues to explain, “Ultimately, at the end of the day we all feel a little bit crazy…a little bit like a Psycho. It’s just a fun song that we can all relate to, and stylistically we thought to ourselves ‘how do we make a song that sounds like it could live on the ‘Like A House On Fire’ album, but also like it could live on the ‘From Death to Destiny’ album?’. So musically, from a writing standpoint, it was a really enjoyable experience to meld those two eras of Asking Alexandria together and see what that might look like.”
