Royal Blood

Royal Blood to return in 2017?

It seems the dynamic duo Royal Blood could be making a landmark return next year, if their teasing tweet is anything to go by.

The band’s debut self-titled album was released back in 2014 and debuted at #1 in the UK chart, subsequently being labelled platinum in the UK and gold in Canada among others.

The tweet included a video of someone getting a tattoo of the year ‘2017’ on their arm, with a track that sounds very Royal Blood-esque playing on top…

Danny Worsnop releases Asking Alexandria statement

After the Ben Bruce live video last night (details of which you can find here), the perspective from the man himself Danny Worsnop is finally here.

In the piece published on his Instagram, he announced his invitation was rather out-of-the-blue though it seems he was very much willing to get involved with the plans of the group.

Surprisingly though, Worsnop admits in the post that it is the best live set the band have ever pieced together so it should be one hell of a tour when it finally hits the States. It appears Asking even appear to have plans to bring Worsnop when the tour eventually arrives in the UK with Parkway Drive next year, where they’ll play venues including Brixton Academy, where they filmed a live DVD years ago.

See the full statement below:

As none, some, most, or all of you have seen, the last week has been what one would refer to as "eventful". Rumors and speculation of recent events have circulated long before even their inception but in an ironic twist of fate or foresight have come to fruition. Two weeks ago I was approached with a question, that as to if I would consider touring with my former band, Asking Alexandria for their upcoming tour "10 Years In The Black". Now, keep in mind that outside occasional "Hey man, how've you been?" texts, Ben Bruce and I hadn't spoken since my departure, and the rest of the band, not at all. It was a long week pondering the decision and figuring out what the right thing to do was. After all, my album "The Long Road Home" is about to release, which is of course my primary focus, I'm working on the new We Are Harlot record, and trying to book in as much acting work as possible. Eventually the pivotal hour came about and it was time to make a decision. I took this last year off from playing and touring to find myself (pretentious) and re-evaluate my life (cliche), which I NAILED (badass). So, now, after almost two years, I shall be going on tour again with Asking Alexandria. We have spent the last week honing the show and the set to be the best it can be, and best it has ever been, and I hope y'all enjoy watching it as much as we have creating it. It is a journey through the band's history and maybe even a new song that isn't actually very new but is new but isn't new at all. I'm now in a place mentally where this is something I can embrace again, with the men I started this crazy journey with. It's a beautiful nostalgia that feels like nothing ever changed. Whatever happened with Asking Alexandria and Denis Shaforostov is between them, and for them to tell. All I can speak to is my excitement to be working with my old and dear friends, playing music we made for a decade that we are here to celebrate. Pick up your tickets to the USA, Canada, UK and Europe tours at www.askingalexandria.com My new single "Mexico", coming November 1st. Stay tuned for the second We Are Harlot Album. Stay beautiful, sleazy, and never too sober. -D
