After sharing a series of cryptic teasers, Asking Alexandria have finally premiered a video for “The Violence.” The Jensen Noen directed clip takes you to a zombified journey as the seven minute video is fueled with slashing images. However, frontman Danny Worsnop has explained the song is far-from a Zombie Apocalypse as it’s more of a statement on mainstream media.
“Thematically the song is about the way mainstream media and politicians manipulate and spread mistruth amongst the people to encourage and create anger, fear, division, and conflict in their quest to control and acquire power,” Worsnop explains. “As the history books have shown, this only goes so far before the people stand up and say enough is enough.”
