Metalcore troupe turned hard rockers Asking Alexandria have just debuted a cinematic video for ‘The Violence’, the band’s brand new single.
Directed by Jensen Noen, the video sees a conventional horror reversal, where humans are the infected and zombies are their prey.
This is what vocalist Danny Worsnop had to say about the song and its video.
“‘The Violence’ was an incredibly rewarding song to create. Ben and I both got to go way outside anything we’d done before and create something fresh and engaging. Thematically the song is about the way mainstream media and politicians manipulate and spread mistruth amongst the people to encourage and create anger, fear, division, and conflict in their quest to control and acquire power. As the history books have shown, this only goes so far before the people stand up and say enough is enough. I hope everyone enjoys what we’ve created here, we had a great time making it, and even more fun shooting the video!”

The song is expected to feature on the band’s yet-to-be-announced sixth studio album, more details of which are expected to follow soon.
