Asylums release new single and announce album

By Punktastic

These may be turbulent times, but if there’s one thing we can still rely on, it’s new music – and Southend four piece Asylums are more than happy to deliver in the form of stadium-ready new single, ‘A Perfect Life In A Perfect World’.

The single and its accompanying video, which you can watch in full below, also come with the announcement of the band’s third album, ‘Genetic Cabaret’, set for release on 17 July 2020.

“The sentiment of ‘A Perfect Life In A Perfect World’ has taken on a different meaning for me over the last month or so which has led to us deciding to release it now,” says vocalist/guitarist Luke Branch.

“Originally it was about my own struggles with low moods and not always living in the moment, thinking about how life could be all the time. Now during this period of uncertainty and profound challenge for the country and the world it feels more like a song about the future, a song about how we might want to conduct ourselves after this period of isolation and reflection. I hope very much that centres around kindness, community, creativity and compassion.”

‘Genetic Cabaret’ is available to pre-order now on CD, vinyl and cassette here. Asylums will also be heading to The Moth Club, London for a headline show on 24 October, with tickets available now here.
