Asking Alexandria Drop Anthemic First New Song ‘Dark Void’ From


master mentalism tricks

The world can be a dark place, and Asking Alexandria are embracing it on their brand new single “Dark Void.” The song is the first taste of new music from their eighth and still untitled studio album that’s now expected this fall via Better Noise Music.

Asking Alexandria are in fine form on the new song, delivering their darkly tinged anthem with aplomb. “With the world seemingly getting darker and darker, it’s easy to see why so many of us struggle with anxiety, depression, loneliness,” says guitarist Ben Bruce. “This song is about fighting those demons that live in your head and trying your hardest to be your own savior. Finding that inner strength to pull yourself out of the darkness.”

For those wondering, “Dark Void” also tips a bit of the direction of the band’s music for their forthcoming release. “This theme is explored throughout the entirety of our upcoming album,” says the guitarist. “We all have our own struggles and hurdles. We are all on our own journeys that present unique challenges and difficulties, but we all have our own inner strength to fall back on. There is always light at the end of the tunnel. I feel that there can be comfort in knowing that we aren’t alone. We all feel a little down from time to time. We all feel a little lost from time to time, but somehow, in some way, we are all in this together and hopefully our new album can help people through some of their toughest times.”

Helping bring a visual representation of the lyrical theme to light, the band partnered with video director Wombat Fire to deliver a performance-based clip for the song, with a twist. Each of the musicians within the video seem to be hovering in a state between their human visage and the horrors that lie beneath the surface. You can watch it play out in the video below and grab a closer look at the song lyrics as well. And if you like what you see and hear, “Dark Void” is available via multiple platforms here.

Asking Alexandria, “Dark Void”

Asking Alexandria, “Dark Void” Lyrics

One more chance to fall asleep
inside this nightmare that’s taking every part of me

If you scratch under the surface, try to find a purpose, I wonder what the dead would find
Trapped inside the prison of my mind and I’m…
Sick of messing up up but forget it now
Every time I try to stop stop I fall apart
Lost deep down I’m searching for a glimpse of hope
Im sick of messing up up but forget it now

Believe in me
And set me free
I’ll drag these memories through the dark void
Just let me be
My savior, please
Help me crawl out the darkness

If you’re digging through the dirt to see what you can find inside
Trapped inside the prison of my mind and I…
Tried to live in the moment
Lost my mind now I’m broken
Can’t escape the darkness that’s been dragging me down
Lost deep down I’m searching for a glimpse of hope

Believe in me
And set me free
I’ll drag these memories through the dark void
Just let me be
My savior, please
Give me hope for the hopeless
Through the dark void

One more chance to fall asleep
inside this nightmare that’s taking every part of me

Believe in me
And set me free
I’ll drag these memories through the dark void
Just let me be
My savior, please
Help me crawl out the darkness

Believe in me
And set me free
I’ll drag these memories through the dark void.
