Asking Alexandria are an English metalcore band from York, North Yorkshire formed initially in 2006 by lead guitarist Ben Bruce. The most known lineup came into play around 2008, starring lead singer Danny Worsnop, bassist Joe Lancaster, keyboardist and synth player Ryan Binns, and current members drummer James Cassells and rhythm guitarist Cameron Liddell.
Lancaster and Binns later departed from the band in 2009 with Lancaster joining metalcore band With One Last Breath. Bassist Sam Bettley joined the band that same year, and in January 2015 Worsnop departed to focus on his new band We Are Harlot and was later replaced by Denis Stoff of Down & Dirty and Make Me Famous. The band has released four studio albums, their most recent being The Black, which was released on 25 March 2016.
