Is Danny Worsnop back in Asking Alexandria?

There’s confusion surrounding the future of Asking Alexandria as online reports suggest that former frontman Danny Worsnop is back in the band.

Caliber TV writer Nicholas Fike claims that frontman Denis Stoff, who was brought into the band last year, is out.

Fike says on Twitter: “You heard it here first, folks – Danny Worsnop is the vocalist of Asking Alexandria again.”

He later added: “Breaking news: Danny Worsnop returns to Asking Alexandria, Denis Out.”

The posts come after the band’s guitarist Ben Bruce and Worsnop recently buried the hatchet after Worsnop’s acrimonious split from the band to form new group We Are Harlot.

Worsnop then flew to Arizona to meet up with Bruce and producer Matt Good, before an image of the singer in the studio was posted by Bruce. The latest image shared by the pair shows them drinking together.

Since then, speculation has been at fever pitch that something between the two camps could be in the works – with Asking Alexandria’s label Sumerian Records adding to the hype by posting a series of the band’s old album covers and pictures of Worsnop during his time in the group on Facebook.

TeamRock approached the band’s management for comment, but they refused to confirm or deny the rumours.

Asking Alexandria will head out on the road across North America next week as part of the Sumerian Records: 10 Years In The Black tour.
