Asking Alexandria vocalist admits to drugs & alcohol problem

Posted by AP on 01/04/11

Asking Alexandria had to stop their recent Seattle, WA, show short due to vocalist Danny Worsnop being too intoxicated to perform. He has since apologised for his state through a statement and promised to quit drugs and alcohol for good:

“I’m sorry Seattle! Tonight wasn’t right. I’ll be back making it up to you. I’m a fucking idiot. I should never blame my actions on my relapses but tonight made me realize I have a problem. I for the first time in my life want to fix myself. I now know what regret is! I apologize from the bottom of my heart.

I’ve relied on drugs and drinking to feel alive. I can’t do that anymore. Tonight was evidence it’s not me. I can’t do it anymore. I love you all and I’m so sorry I’ve let you all down. Hopefully I grow to have some sort of compassion to myself. I live for self-destruction and that’s wrong. Nothing changes when you’re killing yourself with poison? I love you all and I hope you can forgive me.

I am officially quitting drugs and drinking, here and now. I want to clean up and sort my fucking life out. I’ll never stop hating myself until I stop killing myself.”
