Despite previously discussing his determination to make post-hardcore outfit Asking Alexandria “the biggest band in the world”, frontman Danny Worsnop has decided to take a few months away from the project to focus on his other creative outlets.
It’s common knowledge that Worsnop spends much of his spare time working with his side project Harlot but, speaking to Artisan News, the vocalist has expressed a desire to tour the outfit which, of course, would come at the detriment of Asking Alexandria’s touring schedule.
Careful with his language, Worsnop makes sure not to imply the demise of Asking Alexandria, instead commenting:
“I’m gonna take a few months off from Asking and tour Harlot. It’s gonna be a weird transitional period where I’m trying to figure out the right balance for the schedules.”
Together with Harlot and Asking Alexandria, Worsnop also has plans to embark on his own solo project, tapping into his more mellow side of things:
“It’s more like kind of Johnny Cash lines. The solo record’s really kind of mellow. I wanna do like coffee shops before our shows.”
Earlier in the year, Worsnop spoke to Metal Hammer about the high hopes he hopes for the band’s agenda following the release of their latest record From Death To Destiny.
“I’ll say it right now: we want to be the biggest band in the world,” he said. “I want us to one day be big enough to headline festivals. I can’t understand why any band wouldn’t want that.”
The band are currently touring in support of Korn overseas, but will be making their way Down Under as part of Soundwave Festival 2014 at the start of next year.
