Former Asking Alexandria singer Danny Worsnop says he’s planning on visiting his old bandmate Ben Bruce in Arizona.

The pair reported they had buried the hatchet earlier this month after a public war of words following Worsnop’s departure from the band in 2015, with Bruce saying: “Me and Danny were best friends for a decade. We have rekindled our relationship.”

Now Worsnop says he’s planning a trip to hook up with the guitarist to perhaps play music together – which drew a humorous response from Bruce.

Worsnop tweeted: “About to fly to Arizona to visit Mr Ben Bruce and producer Matt Good. Who knows, maybe play a little music.”

Bruce responded: “Maybe play a little naked Twister?” before adding: “You know it’s just rock and roll, I know you’re by my side through it all…”

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