Asking Alexandria- live in Brighton 2014 by Mike Burnell Thrash Hits

Asking Alexandria are bloody massive. We can’t pretend this is some flash in the pan rise-to-fame – they’ve been slowly building their fanbase over the past five years, and there’s no denying that they’ve reached the size needed to play some of the biggest venues in the UK (before making the step up to arena-level) by putting in some hard graft. As well as many years of dedicated dicking about. That’s why we sent our man in Brighton, Mike Burnell, along to photograph the Brighton date of the band’s biggest headline UK tour to date.

No Metal Mercury Prize 2009 Barclaycard Thrash Hits

Yes, we know the Mercury Prize is just a marketing vehicle for the NME and the Guardian and we’ve genuinely given up complaining about rock and metal not being included in there – even as a token gesture, like they occasionally do with avant garde and jazz artists – but it’s a bloody good excuse to have a little celebration of the excellent British music that has been released over the past year.

Did you know that Asking Alexandria are one of the biggest British bands in America today? Their recent second album, Reckless and Relentless went in at #9 in the main charts but back in their homeland they’re only playing Electric Ballroom. That’s still pretty good though so seeing as fellow Yorkshiremen, While She Sleeps and Yanks, Of Mice & Men were in support, we toddled down to Camden to check it all out.
