What the Press Are Saying About Like A House On Fire
“Asking Alexandria have always flirted with the idea of being a mainstream stadium band, but they’ve finally made an album that can put their unenviable past to bed.” – Exclaim
“if you like the side of the band that’s all about bombastic, roof-raising anthems, then you’re spoiled for choice.” – Kerrang!
“There is no shortage of heart or rage, nor does the energy let up for even a moment. For the better part of an hour, Asking Alexandria bleed themselves dry to deliver honest music that not only makes you feel something but also encourages positive change.” – Haulix Recommends
“By their sixth album, countless bands become burnt out and flavorless, but AA has aged like fine wine. They have more than paid their dues and their hardships have only refined their ideals….If AA continues at their current rate, there is no doubt they’ll solidify their place in the history books.” – Ghost Cult
“Like a House on Fire” is a huge game-changer for the band in a great way. It showcases what fans have grown to love with Asking Alexandria but this record shows the band’s clear growth and maturity as a band. It still has the hard hitting tunes but with a clear grittiness to it and no fear in attempting to shed their Warped tour skins of the past and become a heavy hitter in mainstream rock.” – New England Sounds
“It’s catchy, outrageous, honest, and possibly one of their most sobering albums to date.” – Distorted Sound
“the band blend Arena Rock hooks with electronic atmospherics, continuing to fine-tune the signature sound that they first presented on their eponymous LP.” – Cryptic Rock
“With all of this being said, while this record is definitely a departure from what we’ve grown to know and love about Asking Alexandria, this new chapter of the band is just as valid.” – Metal Wani
“It feels freer, and more like they are writing exactly what they want to write without caring about what people have told them to do. The loosening of those reins is inspiring, and so is the message of purely being who you are and doing what you want.” – Moshville
Since 2008, ASKING ALEXANDRIA have paved a path of their own, distilling danger and excess into an equally dangerous hybrid of stadium rock ambition, metallic energy, and electronic ecstasy. Against all odds, they achieved unprecedented success earmarked by two gold-certified singles (namely, “Final Episode (Let’s Change The Channel)” and “Not The American Average”), over a billion cumulative streams and views, 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 have destroyed stages alongside Guns N’ Roses, Green Day, Avenged Sevenfold, Alice In Chains, and Slipknot, to name a few. Meanwhile, 2017’s self-titled Asking Alexandria spawned two of the group’s biggest singles to date: “Alone In A Room” (40 million Spotify streams) and “Into the Fire” (30 million Spotify streams). They are one of only a handful of bands from their generation who have consistently and successfully evolved over their decade-long career, maturing as song-writers and performers and growing in popularity whilst never losing sight of the core sound intrinsic to Asking Alexandria.
Now, fanning the flame like never before, the quintet burn even brighter on their sixth full-length LIKE A HOUSE ON FIRE. Once again recorded by producer Matt Good [Hollywood Undead, From First To Last], who also produced the band’s 2017 Self Titled release, LIKE A HOUSE ON FIRE was recorded throughout 2019 in between a high-profile arena tour supporting Shinedown and a direct support slot on the road with Papa Roach. The intermittent sessions allowed them to tap into the energy of touring, resulting in a 15 track opus of massive, arena filling rock songs.
