Asking Alexandria will warm up for the summer festival appearances at Reading and Leeds with a pair of intimate live shows.
The British metalcore band will play shows in Southampton and London on August 15 and 16 – which will be the band’s only two UK shows outwith the festivals.
Guitarist Ben Bruce broke the news in the same week the band’s latest single ‘The Black’ was catapulted onto the BBC Radio One INMWT playlist.
Bruce says: ““ENGLAND! We are coming HOME! We cannot wait!
“We are playing two intimate shows for you guys as the first UK shows following the release of our new album The Black and we couldn't be more excited. These will be the only two shows we play in the UK this summer outside of Reading and Leeds which means a much longer set, more fun and more booze! See you guys soon.”
‘The Black’ – which is the name of both their new single and forthcoming fourth album – will drop on March 25.
