“From Death To Destiny”, the third album from the British metalcore act ASKING ALEXANDRIA, sold 38,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 6 on The Billboard 200 chart. Issued on August 6 via Sumerian Records, the CD was recorded with renowned producer Joey Sturgis (THE DEVIL WEARS PRADA, EMMURE).

“From Death To Destiny” track listing:

01. Don’t Pray For Me
02. Killing You
03. The Death Of Me
04. Run Free
05. Break Down The Walls
06. Poison
07. Believe
08. Creature
09. White Line Fever
10. Moving On
11. The Road
12. Until The End (ft. Howard Jones)
13. The Death Of Me (Rock Mix)

Most of the new CD was tracked at Sturgis‘ studio in Indiana, while the vocals and strings and choir parts were laid down at NRG Recording Studios in North Hollywood, California.

“It’s taken long enough!” ASKING ALEXANDRIA guitarist Ben Bruce told Metal Hammer magazine. “It wasn’t because we were being lazy, but because we wanted it to be perfect. ‘From Death To Destiny’ is our third album and we wanted to make sure we’d bring out the best possible record we could.”

He continued: “This is our biggest sounding record and alongside the classic ASKING ALEXANDRIA stuff — the breakdown sections, heavy sections, fast sections — we’ve thrown a lot of new influences in there. It’s a very diverse album and I think people who pigeonholed us are going to realize they were wrong when they hear it.”

ASKING ALEXANDRIA is:

Danny Worsnop – Vocals
Ben Bruce – Guitar
Cameron Liddell – Guitar
Sam Bettley – Bass
James Cassells – Drums

Punk rock legends Rise Against will release a special rarities collection titled Long Forgotten Songs : B-Sides & Covers 2000-2013 via Interscope on September 9.

“In the last thirteen or so years Rise Against has put out six records, each one we are proud to put our name on” says lead singer Tim McIlrath. “But we are just as proud of these 26 songs that slipped through the cracks and never ended up on any of our full lengths. In various ways, most of these songs saw the light of day at some point, but we thought we would spare you the digging and put them all on one record.”

The band also play the UK Vans Warped Tour event in London on November 16.
