Speaking about ‘Like A House On Fire’, Bruce said that the band had “been working our asses off for the last couple of years on creating this album”.

“We are absolutely in love with what we have created,” he said. “There are songs about triumph, strength and resilience. There are songs about losing love, losing passion and losing faith. There are songs about moving on to new things and songs celebrating our journey.

“This album is filled with love and passion from the five original members of Asking Alexandria.”
