Asking Alexandria have confirmed the identity of their new frontman, and are streaming a brand new song.
Following Danny Worsnop’s decision quit the band to focus on We Are Harlot back in January, the band have recruited the former vocalist from labelmates Down & Dirty, Denis Shaforostov.
“I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long and now the time has come,” Denis posted on Instagram. “I’m extremely happy and proud to announce that now, I’m officially a part of such an incredible band and family – Asking Alexandria. I’m beyond excited for this new, unbelievable chapter of my life though it still feels so surreal!
“I can’t even begin to explain how stoked I am about new Asking Alexandria and our new album. Ben, James, Sam, Cam and me have been working on it very hard for the past couple of months and we couldn’t be happier with the result. We’ve put our hearts and souls into this record, it’s done for YOU. Trust me, it’s something absolutely mind-blowing and I’m sure it’s going to please every single member of “AAFamily” – those, who’s been with the guys since the day one and those, who just recently joined this strong and unbelievably supportive family!
“Here’s to the new begging guys, I can’t wait to meet every single one of you on the road! Cheers”
“Some people may see this as the end of a chapter,” adds guitarist Ben Bruce. “I see this as the something of something incredible, better than ever before. Asking Alexandria is more than just the 5 band members, We are a family comprised of the most dedicated fans spread across the globe. This is our time. This is our adventure. I Couldn’t be more excited to be part of this with all of you. Here’s to all of us.”
Alongside the announcement, the band have dropped their first track featuring Denis on vocals. Check out ‘I Won’t Give In’ below.
