Asking Alexandria Singer: 'I Don't Like Warped Tour, There's a Lot of Young'
12
Asking Alexandria singer Danny Worsnop recently explained how he's not a big fan of the Warped Tour, as well as metal music in general.

Asked about the festival tour by Under the Gun, Danny said, "I don't like Warped Tour. Love the people that put it on - not my kind of tour. I don't like any of the bands on it, and I don't like the ... it's very ... I don't know, there's a lot of young... a lot of young...

"Which isn't necessarily a bad thing, but I prefer this kind of environment [Mayhem Festival] with the older bands who are more mature. I have some great friends on Warped Tour but unfortunately, it's not my tour. Not my kind of tour."

Switching to the matter of metal music, the vocalist added, "I'm not a big metal fan. I spend most of my time pretty much just listening to a lot of Aerosmith and Van Halen, Def Leppard - stuff like that. That's generally my go-to music, and other than that like blues stuff and some country stuff."

Despite Danny not being too thrilled about it, Asking Alexandria have performed on Warped Tour back in 2011.

In recent news, Worsnop bashed today's rock scene as "monotonous," giving himself and the band a pat on the back for coming up with a "fresh sound." More on that here.

    I think he was about to say "jailbait"...I'd hate Warped Tour too if there was a swarm of jailbait tempting me everywhere I went. Mayhem is much better because you can't go to jail for touching tattooed biker chicks and milfs.

    Hahaha wow. Can't believe I didn't notice that. I just saw Asking Alexandria in the title and clicked because articles about them (and peoples' responses) are usually amusing.

    May not be your tour, but your music fits just right in with the warped tour. Hate to break it to you, but musically seen, you could never tour with Van Halen or Aerosmith or any band that isn't geared towards angsty teenagers

    They seem really desperate to get attention now that their 15 minutes of fame are passing away.

    Does anyone take this band as anything other than a 'warped tour band'. Their music is getting softer as time goes on. I expect them to play with the pop punk crowd at warped, rather than Cannibal Corpse and some half decent core bands. But apparently Danny and the rest of AA consider their music and in turn themselves to be the second coming of Christ.

    the music isn't getting softer.. the latest album is the only one I can kind of stand, because the vocals are at least not completely whiny..

    Ha! Haha! Danny Worsnop from Asking Alexandria complaining about too monotonous music?! Oh the irony!

    He should have said 'I'm not a modern metal fan'. Van Halen and Def Leppard are/were considered classic metal. But ya'know, the guy is a tool and needs a slap anyway...

    Their older music is warped tour material. Their most recent album, not so much. They changed their musical style a lot. I think they'd appeal to way more people now. I like them.
