Hardly one of my favourite bands, Asking Alexandria has been a band that have gone through a lot. With the departure of Danny Worsnop somewhat throwing the band into turmoil yet spawning The Black, it has been a tough time for the band. Announcing his no doubt long awaited return, Worsnop is once again part of the band and album number five could be their most poignant yet.
Forgoing the likes of teeny screamo for more Alt Rock elements Asking Alexandria’s fifth record is a statement that regardless of what the band might have been through they are more than just back. Understanding what it is that makes the band tick, the group have returned with one of their strongest records to date.
However there are some pitfalls that the album sadly falls into, nevertheless for the most part its quality alternative songwriting and standing ovation should be reserved for Worsnop’s dynamic performance. Welcome back into the fold Danny.
