Asking Alexandria Star Pays Back Fan Allegedly Cheated By Ex-Singer

Asking Alexandria

(Metal Hammer) Asking Alexandria's Ben Bruce has paid $500 out of his own pocket to a fan who claims he was swindled by former frontman Denis Stoff. Belgian solo artist Maxime Solemn says he'd paid $500 as a down payment for a guest vocal spot from Stoff in late 2014 - who was then fronting his previous band Down & Dirty - after the singer told him it would cost $800.

When Asking Alexandria recruited Stoff last year, the vocalist reportedly told Solemn there would be no guest spot - but he never refunded the payment.

In an interview with Brian Storm, Solemn says he hounded Stoff and Asking Alexandria's label Sumerian Records with emails and didn't receive a response. He then added the frontman on Facebook, who told him that he'd changed his email address and would pay him back after tour.

Solemn says: "From time to time he would contact me again on Facebook and say 'Yeah, it's coming, I'll take care of it, I'll take care of it.' One time he asked me Western Union information so he could pay me but nothing happened."

After Stoff left Asking Alexandria under a cloud last month, Solemn came out publicly about the unpaid debt to warn others not to make the same mistake. Now he reveals guitarist Bruce got in touch with him over Twitter after hearing the story to reimburse him - despite that the deal took place before Stoff was in the band. Read more here.
