Asking Alexandria Announce 2016 Australian Tour

UK metal act Asking Alexandria have just announced they will be returning to Australia in April, bringing new frontman Denis Stoff along for his first tour down under with the band.

The first time the band have returned since their appearance as part of Soundwave 2014, guitarist Ben Bruce has said the band “couldn’t be more excited about this tour.”

“We are back and we truly are better than ever. This tour is going to be absolutely insane and we can’t wait to see you all out there. See you soon,” he added.

Still touring off the back of 2013’s From Death To Destiny (although Bruce has apparently been writing material since 2014), the 2016 shows will be Australian metal fans’ first chance to see Stoff with the band in action.  If you are super curious you can listen to the band’s standalone single I Won’t Give In, released in May this year, and so far the only material recorded with Stoff.

Having been heavily inspired by the band when starting out as a singer himself, Stoff has reportedly stepped into former singer Danny Worsnop’s shoes seamlessly, if anything exceeding him, with Bruce praising the new singer’s greater vocal range and,in an interview with Kerrang, saying that he can perform many of the bands’ songs better than Worsnop ever could.

If that isn’t enough to get you excited for the tour though, the supports should be enough to push you over the brink, with Arizona’s Blessthefall and locals Buried In Verona along for the whole tour.

You can check out the full tour details below, but in the meantime have a listen to I Won’t Give Up here and get a taste of the new singer in full flight.
