Life is all about how quickly you get back up. In January 2015, everything changed for Asking Alexandria. The chart-topping, gold-selling UK hard rock outfit parted ways with singer and founding member Danny Worsnop. On the outside, the future might’ve seemed uncertain—even grim—to some, but Ben Bruce [lead guitar, vocals], James Cassells [drums], Cameron Liddell [rhythm guitar], and Sam Bettley [bass] dusted themselves off, lifted their chins, and got right back up.
Now, The Black represents a new beginning and the commencement of their biggest, boldest, and best chapter yet, fronted by new Ukrainian singer Denis Stoff on vocal duties. The Black reflects the apex of Asking Alexandria’s singular style, that dynamic approach has defined them since day one.
