Asking Alexandria’s Danny Worsnop To Provide The Voice Of Bird and Cage’s Ari
Indie developers Capricia Productions has announced the addition of Danny Worsnop to their upcoming project Of Bird and Cage. He will be voicing Ari, the love interest for the game’s protagonist; Gitta. Gitta is voiced by Kobra Paige of Kobra and the Lotus. Worsnop is best known as the lead singer of rock band Asking Alexandria.
“We’ve had a lot of fun making this – it’s an entirely new approach, an entirely new concept and a way to absorb the video game platform that I believe you guys are going to enjoy. There are a lot of incredible other musicians who’ve been involved in the casting, the creation, the scoring and the performance within this video game and I would just want to say thank you to all of them who’ve been involved, and thank you to everyone who has created Of Bird and Cage for having me on board.” – Danny Worsnop.
Very little has been revealed about the project so far. But it has been described by its developers as a rock or metal album produced as a story-driven narrative video game. Other musicians confirmed to be involved in the project include Ruud Jolie (Within Temptation), Rocky Grey (Evanescence), Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal (Guns N’ Roses), Casey Grillo (Kamelot) and Rob van der Loo (Epica.)
“It was an absolute honor to work with Danny. He is a professional, and he understood that in this case, he was not just singing a “normal” vocal line, but voicing a complicated character, who already has his own personality and voice. We believe Danny not only captured Ari perfectly but also added his own personality to the character and made him even more interesting.” – Arnold Nesis, Capricia’s CEO and music composer/producer.
Of Bird and Cage is expected to be released by early 2020 across consoles. More information can be found on the game’s website.
