Danny Worsnop quits Asking Alexandria

Asking Alexandria frontman Danny Worsnop has announced his departure from the band. Here is his statement:

"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!"


UPDATE: Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce has issued the following:

"It's with heavy heart that I must announce, yet I am sure comes as no surprise to you all, that Danny has decided to leave Asking Alexandria to pursue other musical interests. Before you lose your composure and think this is the end I would like to say that myself, James, Cam and Sam have all been in this since day one. We love Asking Alexandria and we love every single fan/AAFamily member around the world. As with any family there are ups and downs. There are good times and hard times. A family is there to support you and help you in your darkest hours. We have been and always will be there for you guys and just this once we ask for you guys to help us out. Be our strength and our shoulder to lean on. Asking Alexandria will not be slowing down. We are going to tour harder than ever and we are going to write the greatest record of our career. We are extremely excited to announce that we will be spending all summer touring the European festival circuit and across North America on the Vans Warped tour with our new singer, playing a set list FOR THE FANS. We know you are here for us and we know this might seem like a scary time for us all, but we will be fine. We will stand tall and prove to the world that Asking Alexandria is bigger than just one person. It's bigger than just myself, James, Cam and Sam. Asking Alexandria is a family made up of the most dedicated fans around the globe and nothing and no one can hold us down. This isn't the end, this is the start of a whole new chapter. This is where we come together and make history. We want to thank the key people who have stood by us: Ash Avildsen and Sumerian Records, Kevin Lyman and Warped Tour, our management team Kyle, Diony and everyone at 5B, and most importantly YOU reading this. Yes you, because without you, Asking Alexandria would not be possible. I cannot wait to share our new songs with you and I'm so SO excited to get back on the road and see you all again. Stay tuned to find out who the new singer of AA is. Take care of yourselves, stay positive and we will see you all very soon."

Same shit as Escape the Fate and Falling in Reverse will happen and both bands will look like bigger douchebags then they already are.. And then it will become more fodder for gossip news sites.

just when he really started to shine live, he bails?! hella dumb. AA should just stay together but take a break or something. his new band blows

1/22/2015 5:35:37 PM
his interest seems to be more in rock music than metal. and plus he fcked up his voice super bad so he probably cant scream anymore

If I won the lottery, I would pay them $10 each to quit making music.

*swoops hair to the left* say it ain't so?!?! Asking Jason Alexander was my favorite death metal band of all time. They taught me to love life again. Along with black c-ck bribes, they brought metal back to the mainstream, picking up where a7x left off. Oh wellz, at least I still have Enter Shakira

Hilarious news but in all honesty he's going to fade into obscurity like 9/10 similar douches

I'm sure the organizers from Warped Tour are always psyched when a band that hasn't been officially announced blurts out to their social media followers that they'll be on the tour. Good job guys.

hot topic assistant managers are stoked

Someone worried that a sixteen year old girl he slept with on the tour might snitch out on him on Tumblr therefore interrupting the band's next tour and forcing them to drop off the label due to criminal investigation

Dude wrecked his voice and is leaving for this shitty retro rock band he started to better accommodate his now trashed vocals. Makes sense to me. Not sure anyone needed that wall of text from their guitarist explaining it though, jeez dude.

That little adopted dog really hated him

anonymous

He didn't even sing anyway. If you were ever at one of their shows during sound check you could hear their back track which included his vocals, and he wasn't even on stage. It was a joke!
