It was a three-way tie for my favourite video released over the past week, but in the end I plumped for this colourful offering from Southend quartet Asylums:
‘Graveyard Tourism’ is the third single to be taken from their album ‘Alien Human Emotions’, which was released through their own label, Cool Thing Records.
Asylums frontman Luke Branch explained the concept behind the video:
“The last few months have been completely manic in Asylums world. We have been in Manchester, Germany, London, and everywhere else while simultaneously running Cool Thing Records. Over Halloween, we had a few spare days to meet up and make a video. We decided to get drunk, paint our faces green and our lips red and go back to our DIY roots. The experience was reminiscent of madness during our first video shoot for ‘The Death Of Television’.”
