Asking Alexandria is now streaming a new version of their song "Faded Out" featuring Within Temptation vocalist Sharon den Adel. The new version will appear on The Retaliators soundtrack, and you can stream it here.
"'Faded Out' is just one of those songs with an infectious energy and groove!" said Asking Alexandria vocalist and guitarist Ben Bruce. "I remember it coming together in the studio and thinking 'I can't wait to play this live." Fast forward a couple of months and I'm being told that Sharon of Within Temptation wants to sing on the song with us, and the level of excitement and nostalgia running through my body was immeasurable!
"When I was 14 or 15 years old, I waited in line at Virgin Megastore to meet Within Temptation at a signing and I handed Sharon a demo of my band. Adding Sharon's vocals to the song and teaming up with Within Temptation is a huge honor for us and it also brings a whole new dimension to the song. I can't wait for the fans to hear this collaboration and I can't wait for it to be featured in The Retaliators movie!"
"We've been blasting metalcore playlists through our speakers to gain a bit of fresh inspiration for our side, and Asking Alexandria is amongst the top bands we have been spinning over the past years," added Adel. "Their songs are heavy and melodic at the same time, therefore it was a no-brainer when they asked us to join them on 'Faded Out'! We are evenly honored to be a part of this amazing song and we hope everyone will love it as much as we do! Enjoy!"
