Papa Roach Release New Version Of “Broken As Me” Featuring Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop

Papa Roach have released a new version of “Broken As Me“ featuring Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop. The original version of the track appeared on the band’s 2015 album “F.E.A.R.” The updated take on the track will appear on their new greatest hits compilation, “Greatest Hits Vol. 2: The Better Noise Years,“ which is set to be released on March 19.

Jacoby Shaddix said the following about working with Worsnop:

“He’s been on our list for a while and having just toured together, we thought of Danny first when listening to some of the deeper cuts on the album. With the pandemic in full swing, Danny was down right away. He’s one of the best vocalists in rock music, so we’re happy he said yes.”

Worsnop added:

“Making music with my friends is something I always love and enjoy so when Jacoby called me about doing something together I was in right away. The Papa Roach guys have been close friends for a long time now and I’m glad they were able to see that the only thing holding them back from stardom all these years was not having me sing on a new version of one of their songs. I think this is really going to put them on the map and from the bottom of my heart, they’re welcome!”

Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria) Cancels Spring UK Tour

Danny Worsnop (Asking Alexandria) has cancelled his spring UK tour with The Cruel Knives and Paul Bartolome due to the coronavirus pandemic. Worsnop commented:

“Due to extended lockdowns and restrictions it was requested that the April/May tour be pushed back once again. I don’t want everyone’s money to be held that long so – though it pains me to do so – I am cancelling the tour. We will be rebooking once it looks like we’re in the clear. In the meantime I have new music coming that hopefully will scratch your DW itch until I can put this back together and get over there.”
