ASKING ALEXANDRIA's latest album, "The Black", debuted at No. 9 on The Billboard 200, having shifted 30,000 equivalent album units in the week ending March 31.

The effort marked the band's first effort following the departure of singer and founding member Danny Worsnop and addition of Denis Stoff.

"We hadn't reached our destination yet, and Danny had," admits guitarist Ben Bruce. "I think it was necessary. When it happened, I was devastated. I lost my best friend. We even started referring to this part of our career as 'the black period.' It was the darkest time, but we weren't going to give up. If he hadn't left, I don't think we would've been as inspired as we were. I also don’t think ASKING ALEXANDRIA would still be around. Instead, we're more excited than ever about this band."

Ukrainian singer Denis Shaforostov gained notoriety posting ASKING ALEXANDRIA covers on YouTube and consequentially inked a deal with Sumerian in his band DOWN AND DIRTY. Bruce shot him an e-mail one night. The next day, a new ASKING ALEXANDRIA song had vocals and a new era in the band's history took form.
