Every band needs a break from time to time, but Asking Alexandria are already back for more.
Beginning on April 19th, the band have announced a US tour with Motionless In White, Whitechapel, Chimaria and I Killed the Prom Queen.
The ‘Don’t Pray For Us’ tour will visit 22 US cities during April / May 2013, and will be the first chance for fans to hear tracks live from the band’s forthcoming third album (the follow-up to 2011’s ‘Reckless & Relentless’) which will be released later this year.
Guitarist Ben Bruce is clearly excited to get out of the studio and on the road, issuing this statement:
“America, how have you been? Good? Yup thought so, me too! Well, as promised, we are back and we are better than ever. With our third studio album looming dangerously near we thought we should do a tour for you lot. An aggressive, heavy as fuck and balls to the wall tour to get you all ready for our new album.
We shall be releasing some new material leading up to the tour and we shall be playing this new material for you all to enjoy live as well. ‘The Don’t Pray For Me Tour’ is our first U.S. tour of the year and fuck it feel good to be back. We have a great support line up and will be tying in the headlining dates with some amazing festival appearances. America, get fucking ready, lets start the new year with a HUGE fucking bang. Can’t wait to see you all.”
