ASKING ALEXANDRIA's Danny Worsnop Talks About Sobering Up, "Mayhem Fest", NEW Music & More!

Last Sunday (August 5th), the fifth edition of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival came to a conclusion in Hartford, Connecticut. As it is typical, the New England Metallers know how to have a good time and never let anything (especially bad weather) get in the way of their appointment with Heavy Music. It was really cool to see so many generations of music both on and off stage, gathered together in unity! This is ultimately what Mayhem Fest represents.

Ever since their inception in 2008, British Metalcorers ASKING ALEXANDRIA have been taking names day after day, town after town. While their debut album 'Stand Up and Scream' made their presence be felt within the Heavy Music world, it was their 2011 release 'Reckless & Relentless' that took the bad boys of Rock into the next level of success.

After touring with bands like GUNS N' ROSES and SKID ROW, ASKING ALEXANDRIA have proven to be ready to perform at bigger better shows. This is why the organizers of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival personally requested to have the band open the main stage for SLIPKNOT, SLAYER and MOTORHEAD at this years festivities.

ASKING ALEXANDRIA's set list for the last Mayhem Fest:

1) Welcome
2) Closure
3) Breathless
4) A Lesson Never Learned
5) To The Stage
6) Dear Insanity
7) Morte et Dabo

Right before ASKING ALEXANDRIA opened the main stage one last time at this year's Mayhem Fest, we had the chance to chat with vocalist Danny Worsnop about the bands experience at the fest. We also discussed how he has managed to overcome his addiction to drugs and the bands future plans.
