Asking Alexandria Drop Two Very Different Tracks – ‘Bad Blood’ & ‘Psycho’

Asking Alexandria 2023

Last month, Asking Alexandria made their big return with single ‘Dark Void‘ which portrayed their contemporary sound, fusing a bit of the old with a bit of the new, and it was pretty awesome.

The track was the UK band’s first release since their seventh record See What’s on the Inside from 2021. Well, we think the band might be gearing up for their eighth album, given the proximity between singles. We’re getting not one, but two new ones today. The latest Asking Alexandria editions are called ‘Bad Blood‘ & ‘Psycho‘.

The three new tunes will all feature on upcoming and recently announced record Where Do We Go From Here? coming out soon via Better Noise Music.

Psycho‘ is the unsurprising radio rock single that vocalist Danny Worsnop shines on, and sees the band lean into the frontman’s desired direction from recent years. However, ‘Bad Blood‘ is the stuff hardcore fans from day one will raise an eyebrow for. With an epic energy, Asking Alexandria dial up the rock into something progressively heavier, and the last minute is where the action really happens with Danny giving us some Stand Up And Scream gutturals alongside some dirty guitars that’ll undoubtedly pique your interest.

“‘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 guitarist Ben BruceWhether 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?’. 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.”
