Asking Alexandria Are Now In The Studio Making A New Album
Fans were delighted to see an Instagram post made by Asking Alexandria member Ben Bruce yesterday that featured bassist Sam Bettley in a studio with his guitar, potentially in the process of making a new album. What does this mean? Well, a brand new Asking Alexandria album could be on it’s way sooner than you think.
The photo displayed Bettley sitting beside From First To Last’s own Matt Good, who’s rumored to be producing the record, alongside the caption “Matt Good just reassuring Mr. Bettley, the bombtastic bassist, that everything he is laying down right now is in fact bombtastic.”
When speaking to Finlands Kaaos TV earlier this March, Ben Bruce spoke briefly about the upcoming album, stating “The whole album’s written and is ready to be recorded properly.”
“And then we have some huge touring opportunities in the works that we are working on right now, so it’s going to be exciting,” He continued.
The new album will be the first featuring frontman Danny Wornsop since re-joining the band.
“We were continuing on as Asking Alexandria with Denis [Stoff] to keep the band going, and we had a great time. We wrote and recorded a great record together, and I have no regrets at all,” Bruce said.
“But Danny is part of our family. He started the band with me and the other guys; we’re the five original members. We went through a tough time, obviously, like a lot of relationships do. But I did say to Danny the day he called me and left the band the first time, I said, ‘There’ll always be a place for you in Asking Alexandria,’ because he started the band with us. And people forget everything that we went through together to get to where we are. Everything happens for a reason… None of us could be any happier than we are now.”
As soon as Stoff was out of the band, Bruce’s first thought was to ask Worsnop to re-claim his place, and he agreed.
“So when the situation arose that Denis no longer wanted to be in Asking Alexandria, he just kind of disappeared. I was, like, well, let’s see if Danny would be interested again,” Bruce says. “We buried the hatchet, and it was like everything was great… And I think he was excited by the idea too. Like I said, everything happens for a reason.”
