Prozac and coffee black, it's breakfast time again. You and me, recovery, waiting for it to kick in. We fell in love, got all screwed up and held on for dear life. Oh lord we pray, we medicate until we're stabilized.
We wore the crown, we painted the town, and held on for dear life. Got crucified and came back to life with caffeine and a pill.
Prozac and coffee back, that's it for me and you. New drugs of choice, we go and void all the highs that we once new

He has also delighted to announce that he has been added to Kent's Ramblin' Man Fair line up in July. Despite selling over half a million albums, his 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 and forges a deeper and often darker path through the British-born (4 September 1990; Beverley, Yorkshire, England), 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”.

About Danny Worsnop
English singer, songwriter, actor, photographer, writer.
Danny Worsnop. The English singer, songwriter, photographer and writer was born and raised in the sparse, farmland countryside in Northern England. His music career began with dropping out of college and shipping off to the States with 4 unlikely companions that are known today as Asking Alexandria

After months of living homeless in a New Jersey Wal Mart parking lot living off ramen noodles, cheap liquor and overwhelming passion, the band wake up to record contracts from countless labels across the country. Upon signing with Sumerian Records (with whom the band are still signed with) they went into The Foundation Studios in Connersville, IN to record their debut album “Stand Up And Scream“ in 2009.

Following his departure from UK metalcore pioneers Asking Alexandria, Danny Worsnop's musical direction could not have been more different, with the rock 'n' roll swagger of We Are Harlot being reminiscent of hard rock's heyday. Now with his debut solo album being released on Earache Records, home to bluesy-rock bands such as Rival Sons, one of music's busiest talents shows off another side to his repertoire, with a refreshing approach to country and blues that perhaps only he could deliver.
Working with Grammy-award winning songwriters John Paul White and Hillary Lindsey, and renowned producer Jim Kaufman, "The Long Road Home" is a collection of finely crafted songs, covering his past dealings with drugs, alcoholism and his rehabilitation along with his other "dark demons". Written intensely in just one week and recorded live and raw in Kaufman's living room, the album is a deeply personal account of Danny's experiences. Indeed, every aspect of the release has been completely under his control, right down to directing the accompanying videos for the lead track, 'I Got Bones'.
