Asking Alexandria - Live Week - Day 3

Asking Alexandria has been a favorite band of mine for a while. As a matter of fact, the live show from today's post is of a concert that I attended, at the Nile Theater in Mesa, AZ. They are a five piece metalcore band from England with just one full-length album release: "Stand Up and Scream". They have released an EP this past December, entitled "Life Gone Wild" and they have another full-length album set to be released on April 5th, "Reckless and Relentless". The song hear today will be from "Stand Up and Scream".

The member's of the band include: Sam Bettley (bass), Ben Bruce (guitar, vocals), James Cassells (drums), Cameron Liddell (guitar), and Danny Worsnop (vocals, synth, keys, programming). The band name Asking Alexandria is often brought up by a previous band that released an album entitled "The Irony of Your Perfection," but this is, in fact, a different band. Guitarist, Ben Bruce, was in a previous band that broke up which used the name Asking Alexandria for about the last month of being together. After disbanding, Bruce began another band while keeping the name. This is Asking Alexandria's "The Final Episode (Let's Change the Channel)"

At the beginning of the video, lead singer, Danny Worsnop says, "We have a winner." This song was actually played as an encore. Just after they finished their set, the crowd started chanting for another song and they agreed to play if they could get 10 bra's on the stage. After a couple minutes we had about 12 or 13 bra's on stage, as well as, a couple girls flashing the audience. It was definitely a good time. I didn't take this video, however, I was much closer to the stage :)

That's all I have for today, if you'd like to hear more of this band, look it up, lol.

As always, Keep Rockin'!


  1. Instant cred for these guys. If I was a rock star, I'd whore out encores for a set number of bras! Great post!

  2. Lol, I like the way you think.
