Asking Alexandria Cancel European/UK Tour

Asking Alexandria have cancelled their European/UK tour with Pop Evil and All Good Things. The band issued the following statement:

“To our friends and AAFamily. I’m sure this will come as no surprise to most but due to the ongoing complications with the pandemic we need to cancel our upcoming UK/Euro dates. We have been looking forward to coming back home and playing these handful of shows for you all and to have to take them down is devastating for us, but obviously the health and safety of everyone has to take priority. On a much brighter note we WILL be back! We cannot wait to come back and see you all, thank you all so much for your understanding and patience. Stay safe out there.”

Fans Crash Car Into Venue During P.O.D., From Ashes To New, & All Good Things’ Birmingham, AL Show

During P.O.D., From Ashes To New, and All Good Things’ September 21 show at the Zydeco Bar in Birmingham, AL, two fans ended up crashing a car into the building. They have since been arrested.

According to the Birmingham Police Department, the suspects allegedly slammed their car into the venue and took off before they were taken into custody. One person suffered minor injuries. Notably, witnesses also mentioned that the driver was kicked out of the venue earlier that night.

From Ashes To New vocalist Matt Brandyberry discussed the incident in a video that was uploaded to social media:

“Apparently, what happened was this dude got kicked out of our show tonight. And I guess he got mad at the security guard for doing that. I guess they got into a fight and, from what I’m hearing, someone pulled a gun — security pulled a gun or something like that — and they got into a fight. And then this dude left… I guess what ended up happening was after he left, he came back with his car and he tried to run the security guard over. … This dude ran his fucking car into the bar, into the club. … I guess he must’ve hit the security guard, but the security guard seems fine; he’s bleeding, but he seems like he’s fine. But the dude who’s driving the car is mangled. The dude is, like, all messed up.”
