All the bite sized news from Wednesday the 12th of April 2019
Asking Alexandria frontman, Danny Worsnop has today announced that he will be releasing his new solo album, ‘Shades of Blue’, on May 10th. Pre-orders are available now from dannyworsnop.net and you can watch the new video Best Bad Habit. It’s a little on the easy listening side so may not be for everyone.
We received word from Synthwave artist GosT:
“The tears of Seraphica still lay upon his face. For he has sown horrific woe throughout Adamah. We welcome, Carreau, from beneath Loudun. Carreau will make his first appearances this year starting with the upcoming tour supporting our brother in arms, Perturbator. Come pay witness to a brand new live show in a city near you!”
We think that means there’s a tour announcement coming? You can check out the song “The Call Of The Faithful” which is taken from the Skull 2019 vinyl release on May 3rd 2019. There will be 3 versions – a regular transparent green, a transparent red which is limited to 300 copies and available only from GosT and a neon orange version which is limited to 100 copies and only available from CM Distro.
