Asking Alexandria Experiences Problems In Seattle With Vocalist Danny Worsnop

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.

Updated: Here's a video from the show (it's gets better after the first minute or so) - props to our reader "meask":

Kinda backs up those claims about their behaviour in Nashville. I hope the guy gets sorted out.

Keep your eyes on youtube for videos, i was there and plenty of people were taking videos. I have a short one I'll put up later that I took with my phone.. But basically.. it was intoxication of some sort. He challenged everyone to fight him, hit a fan, puked, was stuffing his face in girls chests & faces, just screaming (i dont think we heard more than 5 actual lyrics come out of his mouth), he was on the ground most of the time. Everyone was booing him off the stafe. In an effort to save the show, ben got some fans up there to help sing along, and ended the show with pretty much all of the venue on stage with them. The guys tried really hard to keep us happy.

I was there at the show... and it was just embarrassing to watch really. I felt bad for him, but that's what happens. I hope he sticks to his word and cleans up his act and hopefully keeps his fists out of fan's faces or doesn't kill himself with what he's doing... This breaks my heart, but unfortunately I was one of the people calling him names, flipping him off, and telling him to get off. Now that I see the videos I feel horrible. It's just mixed emotions right now... :/

Sadly he cant 'get better'. As humans cant choose if we get sick or not, but you do choose to take drugs. To feel sorry for this idiot is lame.

Can't stand this band, at all, but I still wish him the best. People like post 13 who possess such a hateful and snobby attitude toward people with substance abuse problems make me sick.

A young pretending to be a rockstar;fiddle f***in around with his fan base all f***ed up. Hopefully he gets his self together for his sake and bands sake. Hardly fair to paying fans of his to have to see his meltdown. I'm sure this was a lesson to him and he'll learn. Don't f*** your fan base.

@Natsquatch. Could you explain your position? "hateful and snobby attitude toward people with substance abuse problems". Do you use the word 'Sadly' when referring to a situation concerning someone you hate? Stating the facts of the matter is not hateful, or snobby. I have an issue with the PC kid glove treatment of addicts. Feeling sorry for him is not going to help at all, it will just reinforce his self pity, taking him further down.

Who gives a f*** what he does with his life? Do you guys not know that being on tour is f***ing dreadful? They're a beginning band, with so much fame obtained already, what do you expect from them? Granted, he should go off puking, and starting fights, especially with his fans, but come on, the dude has always used alcohol as his answer, and now with all the pressure on him, you think he's just going to find another way to deal with it? You f***s are f***ing idiots.

'Yep, British Columbia'

hey, have ya ever had 40 Creek whiskey? the fvckin bomb, man! blows doors on anything the states produce

ES recommended some good Canuck brews as well, but i haven't been able to find any of em yet!

the funniest thing about Kamloops Pete is last time he was down here on a bighorn sheep hunt and we were teaching him the local dialect and its fvcked up corrupted spanglish...about the 2nd or 3rd day he had gotten decently familiarized and really started rattling off: "Eeee! Bro-ese, do ya think them rams mas grandes could be aqui in this here vallecito? Eh, no? Que paso, mijo?? EEE bro, now I'm talkeen like a spanish and I can't stop, eh? EEE where the hell is old viejo abuelito! Fvck bro, this sh!t is addicting, eh Bro-ese?? No wonder all these vatos talk like thees all the time no, eh? EEE! Vamanos muchachos! Que tal, eh??? Bro-Eseee!!"

Fvckin classic! :)

Asking Alexandria will always be my favorite band.... but this video still breaks my heart. I hope Danny cleans up his act, because if i ever see him like that, i'll be beyond disappointed. I feel bad for the rest of the band though; they looked horrified.

As for their new album.... i waiting over a freaking year for this, and majority of what they write in their songs is drugs, drinking, and BEING rock and roll.... not gonna lie, just a tad blown away.

I still love them though! Stand up and Scream helped me through so much <;33

I always knew Danny had a problem with drugs and alcohol, but... this was awful. He really needs to shape up like he says he's going to.

I really love the rest of the band, though.

brandyknowsbest, I was thinking the exact same thing about R&R. Stand Up And Scream was so much better than the new one.
