Worsnop could go heavy again

Former Asking Alexandria frontman Danny Worsnop says he’s “not opposed” to the idea of making heavy music again in the future.

He split with the band in February to concentrate on We Are Harlot, and he’s also working on a solo album that’s expected to feature elements of country music.

Worsnop said at the time: “We reached a point, musically, where we wanted different things.”

But guitarist Ben Bruce later said there was more to it, reporting: “He didn’t like screaming, he didn’t like heavy music.”

Asked by a fan whether he’d return to a heavier sound, Worsnop says in a tweet: “Not opposed to it, but nothing planned at this point in time.”

Meanwhile, Asking Alexandria are nearing completion of the follow-up to 2013’s From Death To Destiny, featuring new frontman Denis Stoff.

Bruce recently said: “There’s not been a raw energy or aggression since Reckless & Relentless like this one presents.”

We Are Harlot won the Best New Band accolade at this week’s Classic Rock Awards.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
