Celebrate 11 Years of Asylum 13 – Madness, Dark Music, and Intense Self Expression
Asylum 13 is a weekly celebration of Dark beats, Dark fashion and Dark fun. Delaware’s most original dance party has been bringing live music, and unique performances for 11 years!
Our DJs bring you a beat you can get lost in, whether you want the gear grinding pulse of Industrial or your favorite New Wave dark remix they are here to meet your need for awesome, keeping your hearts pounding, your feet stomping, and the adrenaline high.
This year’s anniversary brings live musical performances from two incredible Synthpop acts that you will not want to miss!
Empathy Test was formed in London, England, in 2013, by childhood friends Isaac Howlett (vocals / songwriting) and Adam Relf (production / composition). The pair captivated listeners from Europe to the USA, with the icy tones of their synthesizer-laden debut track, “Losing Touch”, after it was used in a viral YouTube animation celebrating Liverpool Football Club’s 2013/2014 Premier League season, by artist Richard Swarbrick.
Since then, Empathy Test has self-produced and crowd-funded the release of three stunning albums: “Losing Touch” (2017), “Safe From Harm” (2017) and “Monsters” (2020). Empathy Test’s “big dramatic sound, [which] swoons ecstatically between the nostalgic and immediate (KCRW), has earned them comparisons with Depeche Mode and A Flock of Seagulls, as well as modern synth-pop acts like CHVRCHES, Purity Ring and Hurts.
Despite being offered more than their fair share of record deals, Empathy Test has chosen to make their own path, building a legion of dedicated fans around the world, while still managing to earn features from the likes of Vice on HBO, MTV’s Catfish, Netflix, Line of Best Fit, Earmilk, PopMatters and many more. Celebrity fans include legendary electronic musician Midge Ure (Thin Lizzy, Ultravox, Visage) and Boy George (Culture Club), who described them as “a musical orgasm” via his official Twitter account.
This will be Empathy Test’s first headline tour of the USA.
