The formation of Asking Alexandria dates back to 2003. In Dubai, a guitar player Ben Bruce formed a band, which he called Amongst Us. The lineup was changing on a regular basis. People came and went. The group’s name changed several times as well. It was renamed End of Reason and then - Asking Alexandria.
In 2006, artists released the first EP, Tomorrow.Hope.Goodbye. A year later, they presented the debut LP, The Irony Of Your Perfection. After its release, the group went to tour Germany, the Netherlands, France, and Sweden. During the tour, Bruce realized that he didn’t have a future in Dubai and moved to England. The group fell apart.
In 2008, Ben Bruce met Danny Worsnop, the future vocalist of Asking Alexandria. They moved to York and started forming a new group. Bruce decided not to change the name. Soon, James Cassels, Joe Lancaster, Cameron Liddell, and Ryan Binns joined the band.
