Asking Alexandria Debuts At #9 On The Billboard Top 200 Charts

Amidst a slew of recent speculation regarding their stability, the UK’s sensation, Asking Alexandria, have just undoubtedly proved to all naysayers that they are one of the genre’s most exciting, ground-breaking and heralded artists as their critically acclaimed new album, Reckless and Relentless, debuted at #9 on the Billboard Top 200 charts scanning an impressive 31,449 units in its first week. This is a monumental accomplishment for the band as this also simultaneously marks the biggest first week sales for any artist in the history of Hot Topic and Sumerian Records. This is controversial, unapologetic hard rock at its very finest. Stay tuned to www.facebook.com/ for all up-to-date information.

“Reckless and Relentless” also debuted at #2 on the hard music charts, #3 on indie album charts, #4 on the rock charts and #8 on the digital album charts, and also enjoyed a Top 100 (#98) position in the Top 200 UK album charts, with the album landing at #15 in the Top 50 UK Indie Album Chart and #7 in the Top 40 Rock & Metal Chart.
