Rock is dead? That’s fake news. ASKING ALEXANDRIA is all the evidence we need. Alive with vibrant potency and empowering authenticity, they stand in joyous defiance of the tired cynicism that would declare the death of rock.

Every bit of history, swagger, and tumult is brilliantly mined to full throttle extent on the band’s most ambitious album yet.

With the 25-track opus, he doesn’t just walk again; he runs towards a throne that’s been waiting for him all along over the past two decades. “Once again, Boopac is another story,” he exclaims. “It’s my crazy life and what I’ve been going through the past couple of years with everything and cancer. I felt like I could fight the system, and I could fight this. I did it because of God. My auntie had just died from cancer. My uncle had died from cancer too. I wasn’t going to. I grabbed my realest and deepest songs. It’s one of those records, you listen to and let roll. You don’t have to press fast forward once. By me saying Boopac, that’s some cocky ass shit,” he laughs. “It’s going to open up people’s eyes. This is going to solidify greatness. I promise you…Motherfuckers who doubted me will see.”

Donnie Darko (Jake Gyllenhaal) is a bright and charming high-school student who also has a dark and willfully eccentric side: He does little to mask his contempt for many of his peers, and enjoys challenging the authority of the adults around him. Donnie is also visited on occasion by Frank, a monstrous six-foot rabbit that only he can see, and who often urges him to perform dangerous and destructive pranks. Late one night, Frank leads him out of his home to inform him that the world will come to an end in less than a month; moments later, the engine of a jet aircraft comes crashing through the ceiling of Donnie's room, making him think there might be something to Frank's prophesies after all. The rest of Donnie's world is only marginally less bizarre, as he finds himself dealing with his confused parents (Mary McDonnell and Holmes Osborne), his college-age sister (Maggie Gyllenhaal), his perplexed analyst (Katherine Ross), a rebellious English teacher (Drew Barrymore), a sleazy self-help expert (Patrick Swayze), and a new girl at school who is attracted to his quirks (Jena Malone). Donnie Darko was the first feature film from writer/director Richard Kelly; Drew Barrymore, who plays teacher Karen Pomeroy, also lent her support to the project as an executive producer. A director's cut played in select theaters on a limited basis in the summer of 2004, featuring different music cues and trimmed scenes originally in Kelly's first cut of the film.
