Asking Alexandria is set to unveil their eighth studio album, ‘Where Do We Go From Here?,’ this autumn under via Better Noise Music. The album’s debut track, ‘Dark Void,’ was released in May. Today, the band has released the first official radio single from the album, ‘Psycho,‘ along with ‘Bad Blood,’ available on digital platforms.
Guitarist Ben Bruce commented on the song :
“‘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 downfall. 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?’ 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.”
