Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop explains why the band dropped “Not The American Average” from their live setlists

With 5 full-length albums under their collective belts – 4 of them being with vocalist Danny Worsnop – Asking Alexandria certainly have a wealth of material to choose from when they’re compiling a setlist for tour. While the band’s style certainly has changed in the now 10 years since their debut Stand Up And Scream was released, Asking Alexandria have traditionally played a couple songs off their debut despite the breadth of new material that they have.

It appears a certain song from that album – namely “Not The American Average”, a track that propelled the band into the public consciousness in late 2009 – won’t be played live anymore, at least according to Worsnop. Why? These 6 answers will shock you, especially #4!!!

Asking Alexandria are currently embarking on the festival circuit once again, playing a number of prominent US fests including Carolina Rebellion, Rock On The Range, and plenty more.

Thanks to our friends at Soundlink Magazine, you can watch the set via their Facebook page below.

Asking Alexandria’s Ben Bruce addresses Attila’s “Callout 2”: “We write real songs that resonate”

Currently on the first leg of their co-headlining run with Black Veil Brides (and in support of their new self-titled record), Asking Alexandria are certainly gearing up for a big year. While the aforementioned album certainly threw long-time fans of the band for a loop with a more streamlined, pop-influenced rock sound, it actually contains some of the best and most consistent songs Asking Alexandria have ever written. Don’t believe us? Give the album another spin, it’s solid.

On the other hand, you have Attila. Known for a long time as a party band not to be taken very seriously, they are still very successful and are always in the public eye in one form or another. It’s with that being said that the band’s new song, “Callout 2”, attacks (or really just says “fuck” a lot, kinda like Limp Bizkit’s “Hot Dog”) everyone from Tom Brady to Asking Alexandria vocalist Danny Worsnop. So it’s not a huge surprise that Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce took to Twitter to address the song. While not specifically addressing it by name, it’s fairly easy to tell what is being hinted at here. Of course, would it really surprise anyone if this was a prelude to a tour of some sort? Not likely, but who knows?
