Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce and former frontman Danny Worsnop have both reported that their feud is over.

The pair fell out over the vocalist’s departure from the band in 2015, which led to several public outbursts from both sides.

In May this year Worsnop said: “I ended up leaving because it lost the art to me – it lost its artistic integrity in my eyes. I was just selling out, and that’s not what I do.”

Bruce branded his comments “bullshit” and added: “He’s an Englishman singing country music with an American accent. We’ve done what we’ve always loved to do from day one. We didn’t change – he did.”

Worsnop has tweeted: “Drank almost a handle of Jameson and partied old school style with Ben Bruce. So there’s that…”

Bruce has followed by tweeting: “Me and Danny were best friends for a decade. We have rekindled our relationship.”

Separately, Bruce has replied to the suggestion that he’s unfollowed Asking Alexandria’s new frontman Denis Stoff after settling his differences with Worsnop, saying: “What is everyone talking about?

“I haven’t unfollowed anyone in my band. I’m not in an argument with anyone. All these random stories going round are so strange!”

Worsnop is concentrating on his solo career while Asking Alexandria continue to support fourth album The Black – their first album with Stoff – with a North American tour starting next month.
