ASBESTØS are a pop punk band formed in Cambridgeshire, UK in late 2015 founded by vocalist/guitarist Matt Everett and drummer Joe Richardson based off of their love for the 90s punk scene.
They originally started off as a covers band, playing a few local shows and festivals, before enrolling James Allison as their bassist and backing vocalist in Summer 2016. It was at this point that the band felt comfortable performing their own original songs.
In April 2017, they entered the studio to record their first self-titled EP, released in June, featuring songs like ‘Shadower’, ‘Richardhead’ and ‘Hotel’. The rest of the year saw the band play venues across the region and beyond, including shows in London, Saffron Walden and Bury St. Edmunds.
Before long, they were back and writing new music. In February 2018, they recorded their second EP titled ‘Monochrome’, released in April. This features their most popular song to date, ‘Maggy’, as well as other favourites such as ‘Liar Liar’ and ‘Futue te Ipsum’. In August, they put out two of their scrapped songs from the Monochrome sessions for free, titled ‘Trepidation’ and ‘Abstain’.
At this moment in time, they are currently writing new material for their next release, so stay tuned. Come and check out this awesome band!
