A R I Z O N A are back today with their highly-anticipated sophomore album – ASYLUM - available now.

ASYLUM – which follows the NJ-based trio’s hugely successful 2017 debut album, GALLERY – features the emotionally charged bop “Problems” as well as previously released tracks, “Find Someone,” “Nostalgic,” and “Freaking Out.” “Problems” is joined by an electrifying, retro-inspired companion video streaming now at the official A R I Z O N A YouTube channel.



“’Problems’ is one of my favorite songs on the album” Zachary shares. “We are all constantly experiencing growth, so we are never exactly where we want to be in our lives and that is okay. Even though there is a dark side to this song, making it energetic and bright like we did was a way to celebrate the changes in our lives. We hope that the listeners know they are not alone if they are feeling imperfect, because we all feel that way. We all have problems.”

Fusing groundbreaking pop technique with creative visual design and uncommon textural depth, ASYLUM sees A R I Z O N A driving their signature approach to remarkable new heights. Multi-faceted tracks such as “Problems” and “Still Alive” reveal a profound and powerful sense of community, fueled in part by the band’s exploration of their own interpersonal relationship.

“We chose the word ‘asylum’ as our album title, as we found ourselves in a place where we felt the pressure of album two,” says A R I Z O N A’s David Labuguen. “The pressure of following up, of creating something great, of making sure we don't alienate our fanbase while creating something new and fresh – the classic sophomore album dilemma. For us, we had to re-think our friendship. We had to reevaluate the way we work. We had to check in with ourselves, and center back on why we do this in the first place. We had to take our bond as A R I Z O N A and invoke asylum for ourselves as people. It was a physical, mental, and spiritual journey to reconcile the situation, both within ourselves as individuals, and with the world as a band.”

A R I Z O N A celebrated ASYLUM with a pair of exclusive album release events, the first last night in New York City, and an additional event tonight in Los Angeles. In addition, the band is slated for a pair of upcoming festivals, including Monterrey, Mexico’s Tecaté Live Out 2019 (October 19th) and Tucson, AZ’s Dusk Music Festival (November 9th-10th).
