“The deluxe edition of See What’s On The Inside is the culmination of work that we poured our entire selves into,” shared lead guitarist Ben Bruce. He continued, “It’s the entire journey, from start to finish of a truly special album to us that includes acoustic tracks that have fast become some of my favorite songs we’ve ever created together. With the release of See What’s On The Inside, I feel like Asking Alexandria has explored almost every avenue of rock and metal throughout our career which opens the door for the next chapter. A chapter that will combine everything that has made Asking Alexandria so special over the years! We hope you enjoy this album and we will be back for more very soon.”
Directed by Wombat Fire, the official music video for “See What’s On The Inside” sticks to the band’s classic black and white theme. The band rips through the song, performing it in a castle-like home. Watch HERE.
Writing and recording together in Nashville for the first time in a decade, Asking Alexandria sparked new passion while making their massively successful seventh full-length studio album, See What’s On The Inside. The band’s renewed drive for creating earned them a spot on Spotify’s top 10 in both the US and UK upon the album’s release and their first-ever #1 at US active rock radio with “Alone Again,” which also garnered the biggest first streaming day and week in the band’s history.
The British rockers released their album to critical praise from the likes of Billboard and Knotfest. Billboard praised, “Frenetic on the surface and contemplative beneath it, the 10-song project [See What’s On The Inside] finds the group lyrically grappling with issues of personal identity and redefining its public persona.” Knotfest wrote, “The band’s second single in “Never Gonna Learn” quickly bolstered the staying power of the album – chronicling the cohesive sessions that fruited See What’s On the Inside and providing fans an intimate glimpse into the band with it’s behind-the-scenes vantage point.”

Since 2008, Asking Alexandria have established a world of rock music that is completely their own. Now, over a BILLION cumulative streams and views later, with a new label behind them – the band signed a global deal with Better Noise Music in 2021 – the U.K-based rock group are readying their next chapter.
Composed today of their original line-up – Ben Bruce [guitar, backing vocals], Danny Worsnop [lead vocals], James Cassells [drums], Cameron Liddell [guitar], and Sam Bettley [bass] – the band has arrived at a place of clarity and refreshed sense of artistic purpose. In the early months of 2021, all five members found themselves hunkered down in a house in Franklin, TN, to write and record their new seventh studio album. It was the first time in over a decade that all were together in the same studio. Armed with a new sense of dedication to themselves and to their fans, they went back to their roots and pulled inspiration from some of their earliest influences and musical heroes – Led Zeppelin, Metallica, AC/DC, and Queen. With time to reflect on their journey thus far they began preparing their next steps forward as a band. With no gimmicks or cheap tricks to fall back on and a renewed appetite for writing together, they fell in love again, with music and with each other as band mates.
In the band’s 10+ years as a worldwide touring and recording force, they have achieved unprecedented success earmarked by two gold-certified singles (namely, “Final Episode (Let’s Change The Channel)” and “Not The American Average”) and three consecutive top 10 debuts on the Billboard Top 200—Reckless & Relentless , From Death to Destiny , and The Black . In addition to headlining packed gigs on five continents, they’ve graced stages alongside Guns N’ Roses, Green Day, Avenged Sevenfold, Alice In Chains, and Slipknot, to name a few. 2017’s self-titled LP Asking Alexandria spawned two of the group’s biggest singles to date: “Alone In A Room” (60 million Spotify streams) and “Into the Fire” (50 million Spotify streams). And most recently, they saw critical acclaim with their 2020 sixth full-length studio album Like A House On Fire.
The result of this reflection and renewed creative energy is the band’s most cohesive and self-assured record to date. The project’s first single, the poignantly powerful, guitar-driven “Alone Again” was written by the entire band and is a fitting first offering of the sonic journey on which the world is about to join them. But beyond its moving lyrics and soaring melodies, it is a rally cry and a statement of a group of artists who are here to stay and ready more than ever to be heard. The track is now out-streaming their biggest hit, “Alone In A Room.”
