Asylums have confirmed details of their new album.

Produced by Steve Albini, 'Genetic Cabaret' is set to arrive on July 17 via Cool Thing Records. The release will mark the alternative indie band's third LP to date, following 2018's 'Alien Human Emotions'.

The announcement arrives in conjunction with a reflective new single, A Perfect Life In A Perfect World. The track places gritty guitar lines over a danceable pop structure, adding to the lineage of DIY rock ditties that Asylums have put out in the past. Frontman Luke Branch said: 

"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. 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."

The band will headline London's Moth Club on October 24.
