Thundering full-throttle from supporting Iggy Pop, sell-out European shows, agitpop protesters Asylums are not letting up for a second. The Southend based alt-rock band return with new single ‘Catalogue Kids’; a call to arms anthem for a disenfranchised youth and adults alike.
Frontman Luke Branch says "‘Catalogue Kids’ is the thematic microcosm to our new album. I became a father during the writing and recording of the album, as I contemplated this awesome new responsibility the country seemed to be in a state of complete chaos and disorder both politically and socially. It left me with some big existential questions both in my interior world and the wider exterior world, you can feel some of that in ‘Catalogue Kids’".
Asylums have had an incredible 12 months. As recent recipients of the prestigious and hard-to-score PRS Momentum Fund, their next leap forward seems gilded, greased, and good-to-go. In the privacy of a world-class studio with legendary recording engineer and sound alchemist Steve Albini (Nirvana, PJ Harvey, Pixies), Asylums are currently putting the finishing touches to their forthcoming third album and are uniquely primed for 2020.
