Long time coming, but shocking nonetheless; Danny Worsnop, notorious frontman of Asking Alexandria has left the band.
Today he posted his official statement via Twitter:
“To all of my friends and fans: I would like to let you know that Asking Alexandria and I are moving forward in separate ways. Over the last eight years together we’ve done some amazing things and created something truly special. I now, same as then, want what’s best for the band and at this point in time, that isn’t me. Asking Alexandria will continue to tour throughout the year and will be working on a new album. I will always support and love Asking Alexandria and cannot wait to see what the future holds for them. I am excited for the next chapter of my life with We Are Harlot and will see you all on the road!”
Later in the day guitarist Ben Bruce answered some of the questions we were dying to ask, YES, Asking Alexandria will continue to move forward with a new frontman, and YES, Asking Alexandria will indeed be on this years Vans Warped Tour. Read his full statement below:
The is no word yet on who will be replacing Worsnop, however a petition has been started to introduce Riff Raff as the new AA frontman…uhhh what!?
