Southend newcomers impress with new EP...
Asylums

The current DIY resurgence across the land has led to a plethora of exciting scenes popping up in the most unexpected of places.

Southend is the perfect example. The town seems to be thriving, with scuzzed up garage-rock combos springing out of every corner.

Asylums release new EP 'Wet Dream Fanzine' this week, a trio of hardcore riffing with just a dash of pop to help the medicine go down.

Purchase the EP HERE – or check out a track-by-track guide from the band below.

The Death Of Television
'The title is just a metaphor for a general loss of innocence in my generation, its about trying to concentrate on being an artist in a 24 hour multi media and social networking shitstorm that makes you question your own existence on a daily basis.'

I've Seen Your Face In A Music Magazine
'At our 4th ever gig we were insulted and heckled by quite a famous ex indie pop star who never quite made it. I wrote this song out of pure disgust at his behaviour the next day. Pure venom.'
