Fire In The Asylum / Press

"This is the rare album that bucks expectations from beginning to end...It's obvious Fire in the Asylum pushed itself with each track to balance accessibility with originality in a realm of music where there aren't enough surprises."

“[Fire in the Asylum] have tempered their Strip swagger with art rock angularity, grungy introspection and some punky nose-thumbing to emerge with songs that are mature (sure), expertly played (of course) and, above all, potent.”

“As the stage came to life with ripping guitars and the pounding of the drums, the passion of the music took over the crowd. You can tell that this band puts everything they have into every show”

"Each song had it's own feel and display of a musical talent, dissecting sub genres of hard rock and metal and fusing them together to create their own sound."

“In their sophomore effort Poetry for the Apocalypse, Fire in the Asylum has done what few bands ever do. They have grown, bloomed and exploded to create an album vastly superior to 2009’s self-titled debut. In each of the 10 tracks FITA goes beyond the acute technical ability so readily displayed on the debut and become a rolling Ragnarok of deep psyche, scarred emotion and brilliant songwriting.”

“Fire in the Asylum blends hard rock with other musical influences and socioeconomic and political issues to the BandWagon 2 competition, Denver's hottest band contest sponsored by Colorado Music Buzz. Video profile produced by TNT Music Videos.”

“Combining fierce performances with creative songwriting, FITA has become a musical force in their new hometown of Denver.”

“Fire in the Asylum moved from California to Colorado a little over six months ago and has been burning up the scene pretty well. FITA moved here in part to be more centrally located for their tour plans. They've also enlisted partner bands, like King Rat, to hit the road with them. The gang (drummer/manager Graham, bassist Roqui and frontman Josh) took a moment to answer a few quick questions before jumping back in the van... ”

“Fire in the Asylum is kind of a best-case scenario for inspired Hard Rock with more than a dash of Post-Punk flavoring. (Call it a downright Punk Rock onslaught). This Denver band, made up of primo Josh Phillips (guitar and vocals), the ultra sexy Roqui Lluma (bass and vocals), and manager Graham Mueller (drums), is totally fierce, totally fire-in-the-gut, burn-the-house-down all the way. But while they are just on fire with lightning energy – a creative force to be reckoned with –at the same time the band doesn’t take itself too seriously and really seems to be walking on the fun side of life even as their lyrics can be heavy, heavy and seriously cool. That certainly comes through on this disc; and the urge to see them live comes through strongly as well. This is hell-yeah music if there ever were hell-yeah music.”

“This band has a fire in their gut, and that gusto is apparent in their music”

"Fire In The Asylum is our favorite band!"

Mike Goldman - Bad Billy's

"I enjoyed "Pink Lemonade", "The Asylum is on Fire" and "Puppet Show"... Definitely worth a listen!"

“Their sound is heavy, neat and soulful”

“Fire In The Asylum's self-titled debut is a screamer”

“Fire In The Asylum put on a great show that rocked my socks off; they are definitely worth checking out”
