Although metalcore was born (and is still very much centered) in the suburbs of America, Asking Alexandria (due tonight at Summit Music Hall) plays it convincingly well for a bunch of Brits.

SHOW ME HOW
Sharing a massive bill tonight with Emmure, Chiodos, Miss May I, Evergreen Terrace and Lower Than Atlantis, Asking Alexandria is also celebrating the release of its second album, Reckless and Relentless, which comes out today in three different versions -- and offers track variations if purchased at Best Buy and Hot Topic. This show is all-ages, and tickets are $20-$23. Doors open at 5 p.m., and the bands start at 6.
