Asking Alexandria Perform First Show Since Danny Worsnop’s Return, Record New Song
Just four days after Ben Bruce confirmed the rumors that original Asking Alexandria singer Danny Worsnop had returned to the band, the group hit the stage together. Additionally, the metalcore outfit have recorded a brand new song with Worsnop at the vocal helm.
In the footage above (more below), fans can view Worsnop back in action with the band for the first time since his departure last year. The tour kicked off in Seattle, Washington last night (Oct. 25), seeing the British group tear through a 12 song set that did not include a single song off their latest album, The Black.
Highlights from the show included breaking out songs that had not been played in quite some time, including "Dear Insanity" for the first time since 2013, "Someone, Somewhere" which hadn't been played since 2014 and the set closer, "A Single Moment of Sincerity" which hadn't been included since 2011 according to Setlist.fm.
As if the return of Worsnop wasn't enough for their fans, Asking Alexandria have already hit the studio with the frontman and have tracked a new song. A tweet (seen below) from Matt Good said, "Mixing an amazing new Asking Alexandria song at the moment featuring the return of Danny, who absolutely crushed the vocals. Damn damn."
When Ben Bruce addressed fans on Facebook Live detailing the turmoil in the Asking Alexandria camp, he said, “We didn’t kick Denis [Stoff] out of the band, he stopped talking to us," adding, “Obviously over the last few months we’ve rekindled our relationship with Danny. What happened in the past sucked and it hurt us and obviously I said things and Danny has said things — that happens. It was in the past and it was s–t, but at the end of the day we’ve been best friends for a decade and that’s why this is the move that’s right for us — right for us as a band, right for us as people and friends and right for Asking Alexandria.”
The '10 Years in the Black' tour will run through Dec. 6, rounded out by Born of Osiris, I See Stars, After the Burial, Upon a Burning Body and Bad Omens. For the full list of remaining stops, head to our 2016 Guide to Rock + Metal Tours.
