Big Top Heartbreak
Single: Christmas In The Asylum
Label: Two Bob
Release Date: 16th Dec
“Where have this band been all my life.” BBC Introducing.
“This is an album that could easily become a cult classic.” Jim Barr – Portishead/Get The Blessing.
Christmas In The Asylum is the new single from the debut album ‘Deadbeat Ballads’ that was released the end of October.
The first single made was record of the week on the Geoff Lloyd and Annabel Port show on Absolute Radio and the band have played a sold out album launch at Paper Dress Vintage and The Exchange in Bristol.
Christmas In The Asylum is a part fiction/part biographical tale. A dark ditty with a twist of humour throughout, it explores the downs and the ups of a decadent and ultimately sordid existence.
The lead man and songwriter Scott Lavene writes songs with heart, sometimes heavy but always brutally honest and always intensely passionate. Originally from Essex, now based in Bristol after years of moving around and searching for an unobtainable elixir he put down roots and started writing songs again after a number of years missing from the music scene.
Now back and brimming with fire and fabulous tales, this is a band to watch.
