“What Southend Quartet, Asylums have delivered with Alien Human Emotions is a soundtrack to the modern age” - Kerrang! KKKK
Asylums are set to release ‘Graveyard Tourism’ on 31st October (Halloween). The track is the third single to be taken from their highly acclaimed second album “Alien Human Emotions” and will be released through their own much respected indie label Cool Thing Records. The track follows hot on the heels of previous singles “When We Wake Up” and “Millennials”.
Receiving incredible support from media across the board from BBC6 Music to The Independent, Asylums aren’t waiting for millennial redemption to find them, they’re making their own. The band recently took on the challenge of the “difficult” second album and used it as a jump ramp to a higher plane. They’ve always been about massive, thrashing melodic anthems but this is track is, quite simply one of the massivist.
‘Graveyard Tourism’ tackles themes of dark tourism, mental health and a bleak analyses of a disintegrating social and political landscape. The music seeping thru owes as much to the inventive slacker rock of Grandaddy, the twisted alt pop of Super Fury Animals and the lyrical prowess of Richey Edwards.
Graveyard Tourism, along with the follow up single The Company You Keep, show, not only , the depth of the band’s songwriting but ,also, leaves the field wide open for where they can take album 3 to be recorded in the US in 2019.
“They’re not just lyrics. They’re poems. Asylums are wordsmiths who’ve mastered their craft with precision and finesse. There’s no wasted syllable. It’s just art” - Punktastic
Killer hooks, soaring melodies and moments of dark experimentalism and a social conscience worn like a high-viz jacket.
