Asking Alexandria details new EP/DVD
Official press release: The UK sensation, Asking Alexandria, took the world by storm in 2010 and will close out the year by giving something special back to their legions of devoted fans just in time for the holiday season. The band is set to release a special, limited edition EP/DVD entitled, Life Gone Wild, which will be retail exclusive to all Hot Topic stores, in addition to being available across all digital retail platforms. This EP is set for a Dec. 21st release and it will feature two Skid Row covers, a brand new track from their next full-length album and a slew of bonus video footage. Ben (guitars) further explains how this EP all came together: "Life Gone Wild is an EP that we really wanted to make happen. We talked about it over and over again. Will people accept this? Will they enjoy it? We truly believe people will love this release. It's raw and it shows another side of us. Our passion for music is portrayed in a completely different light. We are huge 80's rock fans and we wanted to play some songs that will have our slightly older audience reminiscing and hopefully open up some new doors to our younger fans and introduce them to some awesome music that they may not have heard before. Either way, the two Skid Row covers, '18 and Life' and 'Youth Gone Wild' are timeless classics and deserve to be sung along to at the top of your lungs. "The re-mix editions of 'Sincerity' and 'American Average' were done, again, to sort of broaden the horizons and introduce people to another genre of music we love to listen to. Just fun and loud alcohol induced beats. Perfect for those drunken nights where you just can't help but dance like a fool. 'Breathless' is a song we have been playing live on our past couple of tours. It's a brand new song that will be on our upcoming new album Reckless and Relentless. We are releasing it on this EP so that our fans get the chance to hear something new from us. There will also be an original demo version of a track from Stand up and Scream. This is a version that most people won't be familiar with and that you can't buy anywhere else. "On top of all of this, we are really excited to announce that our very first ever DVD release will be part of this EP. The DVD will include music videos for 'The Final Episode', 'Circus' and for the very first time ever, fans can see our brand new music video for 'A Prophecy'. This video will be debuting on this DVD, so you should definitely grab a copy and check out the music video. There will also be behind the scenes footage and much more included on this DVD. "We are really excited to be releasing this and hope it allows you to venture into our world a little bit and see/hear sides of us that you wont find anywhere else."
