Southend rockers Asylums have switched gears and have shared album track and fan favourite “Napalm Bubblegum”. Last week Asylums laid waste to Rough Trade stores across the country, culminating in a near riotous performance at Rough Trade East.

“”Napalm Bubblegum” is the other side of the coin from our recent single “Millennials”, it’s our raging, screwed up, hyperactive side. This song felt really vital at last week’s packed out Rough Trade East in-store in London. We didn’t expect to end up crowd surfing and seeing the audience go wild, it’s exciting to see so many new people discovering the band right now” – Luke Branch.


I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
