Asking Alexandria Share Unplugged Version Of Antisocialist

Watch Asking Alexandria give their single Antisocialist the unplugged treatment.

Following up the release of their 4K-rated album Like A House On Fire back in May, Asking Alexandria have unveiled an unplugged rendition of one of its biggest singles, Antisocialist.

“Over the years we have been known to release many acoustic versions of our songs from a number of albums,” explains guitarist Ben Bruce. “Antisocialist has rapidly become our most successful active rock single of our entire career so we wanted to do something special.

“Instead of just another ‘acoustic version’ of a song we decided to really strip this one back and try and recreate the song as an unplugged version that lives and breathes its own identity. An unplugged, vulnerable rendition of the song that hopefully allows people to feel like they are in the room with the band whilst we play it. To all of our fans, old and new, we truly hope you enjoy this unique version of Antisocialist as much as we do. We love you.”

Previously, Ben has described the Antisocialist as “a song written for everyone who just wants to stick their middle fingers up high in the air and scream at the top of their lungs”.

“It’s a song for the frustrated, the forgotten, the unappreciated and the downtrodden. It’s a song for those who work hard and receive nothing in return. It’s a song for those who dream hard and are laughed at. A song that says what we all feel from time to time and a song to just let loose to.”
