ASKING ALEXANDRIA Release Video for Hit Single ‘Alone In A Room’
Ahead of their Download Festival appearance, UK rockers Asking Alexandria unveil the video for their popular single Alone In A Room, lifted from their latest self-titled album.
Arguably the biggest track off their recent self-titled album, Alone In The Room has gotten a visual makeover.
Listening to it, it’s not difficult to see why this song has spent 5 weeks on the BBC Radio One Playlist in the UK and is currently spending its 5th consecutive week in the US Rock Radio Top 40. With a massive singalong chorus, revealing lyrics and pummelling instrumentals, the audio energy is conveyed visually in the video. Shot in black and white, scenes of scribbled lyrics and crumpled paper perfectly reflect the lyrics “I tried to own it / Write songs about it”. With a mix of slow motion frames and sped up shots, the electricity of the song has been portrayed perfectly. The video also sees a dynamic performance from the band – the twist is that they are all alone. It ends on a cliffhanger, as singer Danny Worsnop zooms away in a car, and a ‘To Be Continued’ sign appears on the screen.
Directed by Sumerian Films’ Steven Contreras, this video marks the 2nd chapter – the prequel – of the trilogy that began with Into The Fire. Speaking about the track, guitarist Ben Bruce said:
We are so excited to finally be able to share with you, the long awaited prequel to Into The Fire! The story continues ladies and gentlemen, thank you all so much for helping out new album continue to grow into what we feel is our most exciting and daring record to date!
