ASKING ALEXANDRIA Confirms Danny Worsnop’s Return — Denis Stoff Bailed On Us

Posted October 21, 2016 by Josh Drespling in Empire Extreme News Feed

Asking Alexandria has confirmed the return of ex vocalist Danny Worsnop, replacing Denis Stoff who recently performed on their album “The Black”.

Guitarist Ben Bruce confirmed the stunning news stating that vocalist Denis Stoff was removed from the band because he stopped talking to the rest of the band and they were unable to contact him.

“Basically you all know the rumors and crazy speculation going on. Just to get straight on with the point, we have parted ways with Denis and there are a number of reasons for that.”

Bruce, who was incredibly candid during a live broadcast to the band’s Facebook page, says Denis Stoff abandoned them and claimed he was owed money from the band. From there, Asking Alexandria was unable to communicate with him and was unsure if he was going to be a part of the band anymore.

“We didn’t kick Denis out of the band, he just stopped talking to us.” Bruce said, a surprising revelation in the heavily rumored member change. “Everything was good, everything was fine. The guys came back — we reconnected.”

“Denis went back to Ukraine, we all came back to the states. We all had a nice little break. It got to the time where we all started trying to organize a video shoot for ‘Send Me Home’. We’re like OK Denis needs to fly back to the states. We’re gonna do a video for ‘Send Me Home’ — start work on new songs… new music. Which we did do, we started writing and we recorded some demos and stuff.”

“Everything seemed fine and he just stopped responding. I texted him a bunch, emailed him… loads of emails back and forth. No response whatsoever. We were quite confused like ‘what the hell is going on’ sort of thing. Maybe he’s having a break, maybe he’s tired — we don’t know. And I received a message from him, something along the lines of “Asking Alexandria does not exist unless I get what’s owed to me” so I was confused. What’s owed to him… I don’t really understand?”

“We were left in a pickle. Like, what do we do? Do we end ‘Asking Alexandria’, this band that we’ve worked so hard for the last decade? This thing that we love more than anything. Do we just throw it away? Do we end it?”

“We just sat down as a band and we said ‘why the hell are we doing this’? And the reason we’re doing this… the reason we started this band to begin with is because we love music. We were five best friends who loved being around each other. We all loved the same music together and that’s why we started this band.”

Obviously over the last few months we’ve rekindled our relationship with Danny. And what happened in the past sucked and it hurt us and obviously I have said things and Danny has said things. That happens and it was in the past. It was shit. 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.”

“We were just as blindsided as you guys.” Bruce said.

Danny Worsnop will be performing with the band on their upcoming “10 Years In The Black” tour, which kicks off in a few days. Bruce hinted that the band would have more to say about Denis in the coming days.
