Asylums – ‘Missing Persons’
The follow-up single to the BBC Radio One Play-listed ‘Joy In A Small Wage’
Out Nov 20th via Cool Thing Records
On tour this Autumn performing 19 shows around the U.K.
Previous 2015 shows with The Vaselines, Black Grape, Carl Barat, Mini Mansions and the BBC INTRODUCING STAGE at GLASTONBURY 2015.
The Line Of Best Fit - ‘They are a DIY band, but not as you know it. Somewhere between a forceful wave of 90’s pop punk and Britpop, they're entirely eccentric and entertaining’
BBC Radio One - ‘Remember the last time we heard of a great band from Southend-on-Sea – The Horrors? Well Asylums are just as good, but a whole load more colourful.’
NME Magazine - ‘Like being caught between a hammer and an anvil’
Clash Magazine - ‘Frenetic post-hardcore with a pop edge.’
Q Magazine – ‘Costal indie fuzz merchants’
Shortlist Magazine - ‘An irresistible cocktail of Lemonheads, Weezer & Sonic Youth’
The 405 – ‘Blistering energy that's just down right fun’
Rocksound – ‘Like the scratchiest bits of Blur if they were grungers filled with energy. Intriguing right?’
Choose life. Choose a job. Choose a career. Wait a minute, that’s your chosen career? Playing the guitar is all very well, John, but you’ll never make a living at it. Right?
Missing Persons is for the overlooked, the outsiders, the dreamers, everyone bloody-minded enough to create for art’s sake. An anthem for the believers and the bereft. Those slaving away at a zero hour Mcjob so that they can fill the remaining hours of their day with the business of creating.
The last few months have been busy for Asylums;
They’ve spent the summer playing UK and European Festivals, with BBC Introducing inviting them to play Glastonbury Festival. The week before Glastonbury their then single “Joy In A Small Wage” was added to the BBC Radio 1 daytime playlist. It also picked up its first daytime play on XFM from Jo Good, and countless plays on BBC 6 Music (especially from Steve Lamacq), with a glowing Roundtable appearance seeing NME journo Leonie Cooper describe the band as “stadium Cribs”. Oh, and it reached #7 on the Spotify New Music Chart, while the accompanying video made appearances on Soccer AM and Sunday Brunch.
