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. These dudes, who got together in 2008, have spent a good amount of time touring and recording stateside while steadily building a devoted following both nationally and back home.
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.
