It’s only been a few days since Asking Alexandria announced the departure of former vocalist Denis Stoff and the return of original vocalist Danny Worsnop. Now, it looks like fans from around the world have been given a chance to see the group’s first show after welcoming Worsnop back to the lineup. On Tuesday (Oct. 25), the British band kicked off Sumerian Records’ “10 Years of the Black” tour at the Showbox SoDo in Seattle.
It being Worsnop’s first show with the band in almost two years, it was only logical that audience members at the event would record videos of the show. Thanks to those fans, videos of the group performing can be found on YouTube. Some of those clips include live versions of “Welcome” from 2011’s Reckless & Relentless and “Moving On” from 2013’s From Death to Destiny.
Last week, Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce posted a Facebook live video in which he addressed that Stoff had departed the band. In the same video, he revealed that he had been talking with Worsnop for a bit, which resulted in him asking the former singer if he would be interested in returning to the group. As evident by the video, Worsnop agreed to fill in the vacant spot during the band’s fall tour. If that wasn’t enough, it was reported that the group has already recorded a brand new song with the former/not-former frontman.
Asking Alexandria just kicked off their “10 Years in the Black” tour with Born of Osiris, I See Stars, After the Burial, Upon A Burning Body, and Bad Omens. Tonight (Oct. 26), the tour takes a one-night break before hitting The Knitting Factory on Spokane, WA tomorrow (Oct. 27) evening. The complete list of tour dates can be found here.
