The night of April 12th saw a flock of younger audiences out for the 6pm show, with an average age of about 16 years old.

The bands backing Asking Alexandria were Chiodos, Emmure, Evergreen Terrace, Miss May I, and Lower Than Atlantis.
Asking Alexandria recently performed "Someone, Somewhere" and "Closure" on the Jimmy Kimmel Live program. You can check out both performances below.

British metalcore outfit Asking Alexandria has been confirmed to perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! on April 11th on ABC. The show will air at midnight. The band will be performing their brand new single, "Someone, Somewhere," which is due for release on April 5th.
"Our beautiful fans; Thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for the passion and excitement you showed for us when we played SXSW,” says Asking Alexandria lead guitarist, Ben Bruce. “Thanks to ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ and Whooznxt.COM for becoming another major stepping stone in our career. This is an indescribable feeling. It's time to really show the world what Asking Alexandria is about!!"
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.

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.
