Asking Alexandria Experiences Problems In Seattle

Several hours ago Asking Alexandria posted the following statement on the band's Facebook page:

"We are so sorry Seattle. We will make this right. Once Danny wakes up from his nightmare that was tonight, he will face the music. Thank you to everyone who stayed with us through all of it and joined us on stage to keep the spirit alive. Forgive us Seattle. We will make this right."

The band then followed that message with this statement:

"We are NOT breaking up and we are all still 5 united brothers in this together. Tomorrow Danny will speak for himself to all of you about what happened tonight in Seattle. We love you guys, you are the best fans in the world!"

Although the band didn't specifically state what caused the problem, vocalist Danny Worsnop has now updated his Twitter account with the following string of messages (condensed into one paragraph here):

"I'm a fucking idiot. I should never blame my actions on my relapses but tonight made me realize I have a problem. I for the first time in my life want to fix myself. I now know what regret is! I apologize from the bottom of my heart. Hopefully I grow to have some sort of compassion to myself, I live for self destruction and that's wrong. Nothing changes when you're killing yourself with poison. I love you all. And I hope you can forgive me. I officially am quitting drugs and getting drunk here and now. I want to clean up and sort my fuxking life out. I'll never stop hating myself until I stop killing myself. Thank you all for standing by me. If any R&R shows get canceled, I'm away fixing Myself. I hope you understand."

Additional details on this story, and any additional announcements from the band, will be announced as they are made available. In the mean time, you can also check out the band performing on the Daily Habit at this location.

Asking Alexandria "Banned" From Nashville Club

Hard partying U.K. band Asking Alexandria was banned from a club in a heavily Christian section of Nashville, Tenn., the group's publicist reports.

"The group's reckless image proved to be too much for the conservative venue Rockettown in Nashville, TN who deemed the band 'too controversial' and banned them," a spokesman for the band said. "This primarily Christian area hasn't been this riled up since the days of the antichrist Marilyn Manson's notorious run, but Asking Alexandria make no apologies as rock n' roll is supposed to be dangerous and exciting."

The band moved the April 12 show to Cannery Ballroom on April 12th.

Asking Alexandria Comments On Cancelled Dates

Asking Alexandria has posted the following statement online in response to the band's cancellation of U.K. tour dates:

"As you are all aware at this point in time, we are in the unfortunate position of having to reschedule a few of our UK tour dates. Please understand that this was not an easy decision for us and has taken a lot of thought and consideration to come to the conclusion that we have eventually reached. The reason for these shows will become clear in the coming weeks as we are unable to make public just now. You, our fans, are the reason for this bands success, your love and support has made this band what it is today, and we thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for that.

"We are asking you, and hoping that you will all understand and support us at this time. We have been presented with the most amazing opportunity which we feel could really take this band in the next step of our careers. It is a goal we have had since day one, and again it has been made obtainable due to your support of this band. Rather than just cancel these shows we have re-arranged them to another date, not far from the original date they were scheduled for.

"Thank you so much for all of your understanding and support in the matter. We really cannot wait to hang out with you all and see you at the shows."

The newly rescheduled dates are expected to be announced shortly.

Asking Alexandria Posts Behind The Scenes Video

Asking Alexandria has partnered up with Alternative Press to present an exclusive look into the new video for the track "A Prophecy," which was shot by director Robby Starbuck (August Burns Red, Silverstein). The behind the scenes video clip can be viewed below. Ben Bruce (guitars) describes the process behind the video shoot:

"From 6PM through until 6AM the following morning. One of the most grueling and punishing 12 hours of my life. The video shoot for 'A Prophecy' tested our physical and mental stability. We shot the video in the backroads of downtown LA. Rain machines, fire, cold weather and freezing water conditions in strangers pools were just some of the things we had to endure through out the video shoot. We were all very sick whilst shooting this due to the extreme conditions we were asked to perform in. Blisters on our feet, growling, empty stomachs and lots of make up and hairspray that spent less time where it was intended draining into our mouths due to the rain, but it was all worth going through. The video shoot was quite the experience, and we can't wait to show the world how it has come out." More...
