Worsnop continues, saying that he's written a couple songs. This is the first time he's been fully involved with the writing since the first record. He emphasizes that when the new music comes, it will be heavy.

He also mentioned that the band do not want to play any songs from the Asking Alexandria album recorded with former singer Denis Stoff, The Black.

“I wasn't mentally able to do it any more. It was a poisonous environment, it was fist fights every single day,” Worsnop says about his initial departure from Asking Alexandria in 2015. “Nobody liked each other.”

Worsnop just released his solo country album, The Long Road Home, via Earache Records.
