Asking Alexandria have been one of our favorite metalcore bands for a while now, so we were totally stoked to chat with the guys on the red carpet at the second annual, 2015 Alternative Press Music Awards. In addition to telling us that they deserve the same award as Rob Zombie (lol) they gave us some pretty helpful band advice. Check out our exchange with singer Ben Bruce below.
Happy APMAs! You're on Warped Tour right now.
We are! It's going really good. It's hot. We're the best band on Warped so it's going great.
Who are you most excited to see?
Are you guys Rob Zombie fans? He's up for the Vanguard Award.
I did not know that.
Give it a decade and it'll be your turn.
It should be my turn now.
Who should win next year?
You guys have been around the block for a while—
Yeah, we're sluts.
You've been a band for like, eight, nine years now? What advice would you give bands that are up and coming what advice would you give those acts that have kind of grown up with your band?
Be really good looking, have a British accent. Rip off our songs, you can't go wrong.
