With 2.3 million views on their new music video "The Black” in the first week, Asking Alexandria continues to maintain their popularity despite departing with their vocalist Danny Worship last year.
New vocalist Denis Stoff created an electrifying performance at The Wiltern, leaving the whole crowd exhausted before headliner Bullet For My Valentine. Asking Alexandria had the entire crowd on their feet several times during their performance. Hands raised and devil horns up, it was quite clear that the crowd loved the show.
As Bullet For My Valentine took to the stage, the whole crowd screamed “Bullet, Bullet, Bullet” in unison. The stage was packed with smoke and large spinning lights decorated the background, filling the venue with copious amounts of light. Every song was played perfectly and everyone’s vocals sounded flawless.
After negative reviews of their previous album Temper Temper, Bullet For My Valentine truly stepped up their game and created the album Venom, which brought their sound back to their older albums Fever and Scream Aim Fire. Bullet’s drummer Moose has taken some time away from the band (who has been touring and recording non-stop for 11 years) to be with his wife who is pregnant with their first child. Jason Bowld is currently stepping in on the drums for the remainder of this touring cycle.
Matt explained all of this to the crowd, then introduced Jason who went into a drum solo of epic proportions. It was a sold out show at The Wiltern in Los Angeles, and this stop of the British Invasion Tour seemed to be a highlight for the bands. Bullet For My Valentine and Asking Alexandria are also touring with While She Sleeps for the remainder of the tour.
