To celebrate the first anniversary of their hugely successful self-titled album Asking Alexandria have released a brand new animated video for track ‘Vultures‘. The video follows a challenging, dark and bleakly honest narrative that perfectly accompanies the lyrical theme of the song.
As blood drips from the puncture wounds of the hooks that attach strings to his hands and feet, frontman Danny Worsnop’s animated, bruised and beaten alter ego is manipulated by an ominous puppeteer claw through dimly lit streets, past terrifying headphone clad pedestrians as he laments ‘Everywhere I look these Vultures burn the life right out for me’. Speaking on the track and it’s equally thought provoking animation, Ben Bruce (guitarist) says
“Simply put, Vultures means the world to us. We wrote this song at a time that was completely volatile in AA’s relationship. We have since made amends and have written and created a video that speaks truly of what we have been through and overcome as Asking Alexandria. I hope you enjoy this visual as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
Much love, Ben.”
Much love, Ben.”
