Asking Alexandria and We Are Harlot frontman Danny Worsnop matures effortlessly into blues rock/outlaw country territory on his solo debut, ‘The Long Road Home‘, delivering an album of real, raw emotion, with songs about personal tragedy, hard-living and heartache. It will be released via Earache Records on February 17th.
At the age of just 26, Worsnop has already lived more of life’s ups and downs than most. His recent personal tragedy is laid bare in album opener ‘Prozac‘ and the listener is taken on a roller-coaster of emotions through the twelve song set. The video premiered via NME earlier this week. He has also delighted to announce that he has been added to Kent’s Ramblin’ Man Fair line up in July.
Despite selling 500,000 albums, the hard-drinking lifestyle has caused Danny to be homeless three times, go through rehab twice and be hospitalised numerous times. ‘The Long Road Home‘ sees a musical departure from his previous work. It now forges a deeper and often darker path through the British-born, Nashville-based musician’s mind. Long-time fans will see him in a more personal and reflective mood.

Worsnop comments: “With the help of some incredible and very talented people, I am pleased to announce that in 2017 I will be releasing my first album as a solo artist. It has been an emotional roller-coaster creating these songs, but the end result has left me humbled, proud, and more excited about a project than I ever have been in my life”.
There will be a one off special album launch show on Tuesday February 14th 2017 at London’s Lexington. Tickets are on sale now priced at £15 plus booking fee. Doors are 7pm. http://www.seetickets.com/event/danny-worsnop/the-lexington/1057744/
