Asking Alexandria guitarist Ben Bruce will sit out of the band’s upcoming UK & European tour.
Ben is expecting the birth of his baby daughter in the next few weeks and has decided to stay at home to be around for the birth. Read his full statement below:
So as you may be aware I won’t be joining the lads on this short European run. This is the first time I’ve not joined the guys and it’s really saddening and a very strange feeling but I know they are going to be just fine and they are going to kill it for you guys. The reason I can’t be on this run is due to the fact that I am expecting the arrival of my baby girl any time now and as you all know, myself, the lads and this band has always lived by “family first”. This is an incredibly exciting time in my life and I cannot wait to introduce you all to my little angel. I hope you guys understand why I can’t be at the shows. I do, however, have the privilege of letting you guys know this early…..in September we will be announcing an incredible UK/European tour for the beginning of the year, so don’t worry I am coming for you! Thank you all for your endless amount of love and support. I’ll be at these few shows in spirit, give the guys all the love in the world and sing my parts at the top of your lungs. I’ll see you all next year.
Love you guys,
