The UK’s Asking Alexandria is preparing to release their much anticipated, new full-length album From Death To Destiny on Friday 9 August through Sumerian Records. And they’ll be rocking their new Ibanez signature models as they promote the album around the world. Check out the video below for info about the Cameron Liddell and Ben Bruce signature models, each of which comes with a signed certificate of authenticity. I particularly like that Bruce’s model is based on the FR shape, which I think is a hugely underrated and underappreciated Ibanez design. And both models are priced affordably for Asking Alexandria fans, and frankly I just think it’s cool to see some new signature artists joining the artist roster. Now if only they’d make a signature model for Periphery’s Jake Bowen!
Here’s the press release about the album:
To say that 2012 was a breakout year for Asking Alexandria would be a huge understatement: the group headlined massive, sold-out European and North American tours, and capped it off with a slot on the Rockstar Mayhem Festival.
In 2013, the band have already played Download Festival in the UK (marking their biggest show yet in their homeland), appeared at loads of additional European Festival appearances, and released first single, The Death of Me, from the forthcoming album.
Their previous album, 2011’s Reckless & Relentless debuted in the top 10 on the Billboard Top 200charts. The album’s stunning debut quickly caught the attention of mainstream media across the globe resulting in their national television debut on the ABC late-night talk show “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” They spent the summer of 2011 on the Warped Tour main stage and throughout this timeframe they also graced the covers of Alternative Press, Guitar World and Kerrang!
Their latest accolade? Taking out the award for Best Breakthrough Artist at this year’s Metal Hammer – Golden Gods Awards!
Produced by Joey Sturgis (The Devil Wears Prada, Buried in Verona, Of Mice and Men), From Death To Destiny is controversial, unapologetic hard rock at its very finest.
