Asking Alexandria drop unplugged version of “Antisocialist” (video)

UK rock/metal outfit Asking Alexandria have released an unplugged version of their track “Antisocialist.” The regular version of the song appeared on the band’s new full-length effort, ‘Like a House on Fire,’ which the band unleashed this past May through Sumerian Records.

Speaking on the band’s unplugged version of said track, guitarist Ben Bruce says:

Over the years we have been known to release many acoustic versions of our songs from a number of albums. Antisocialist has rapidly become our most successful active rock single of our entire career so we wanted to do something special. Instead of just another “acoustic version” of a song we decided to really strip this one back and try and recreate the song as an unplugged version that lives and breathes its own identity. An unplugged, vulnerable rendition of the song that hopefully allows people to feel like they are in the room with the band whilst we play it. To all of our fans, old and new, we truly hope you enjoy this unique version of Antisocialist as much as we do. We love you.

Lyrics:

I had a dream once
All by myself with no one else
I thought I’d died and gone to heaven
Then I woke up
And everybody wanted something
Reaching out don’t fucking touch me
So I take pills to induce sleep
But I always wake up

Please stay away from me
You keep on talking with nothing to say
I don’t wanna hear about your life
You make me wanna eat a bullet
It’s on my forehead
Four letters, off
And go forth and spread the word
I don’t wanna know you
Please stay away from me
‘Cause I don’t fucking like you

I had a dream once
I didn’t know it at the time
The world was perfect in that moment
Then I woke up
I was surrounded by these strangers
Standing close and staring in
So I drink liquor to escape it
But I always wake up

Please stay away from me
You keep on talking with nothing to say
I don’t wanna hear about your life
You make me wanna eat a bullet
It’s on my forehead
Four letters, off
And go forth and spread the word
I don’t wanna know you
Please stay away from me
‘Cause I don’t fucking like you

From my heart
I hope you know this song is about you

Please stay away from me
You keep on talking with nothing to say
I don’t wanna hear about your life
You make me wanna eat a bullet
It’s on my forehead
Four letters, off
And go forth and spread the word
I don’t wanna know you
Please stay away from me
‘Cause I don’t fucking like you
