This song opens Asking Alexandria's third album, From Death to Destiny
. It was specifically written by the band to be a concert opener. Guitarist Ben Bruce explained to Artist Direct
: "We wrote this album as a live record. We didn't want to be one of those bands kids go see live and say, 'Oh, they didn't pull it off. It's not as good live as it is on the record.' We sat down and wrote a live record. We wanted it to be even bigger live if possible. In our minds, 'Don't Pray For Me' is the perfect way to open an album and therefore a show."
