Taken from Kill Shelter’s highly anticipated sophomore album “Asylum”, The Necklace ft Agent Side Grinder, is a darkly energetic exploration of the quest for personal sanctuary in the face of constant physical and mental abuse.
“The new single with Agent Side Grinder is very reflective of the overall tone of the forthcoming album. All the tracks delve into different interpretations of the word asylum and highlight challenging themes such as human trafficking, domestic abuse, seeking refuge, disillusionment, bedlam and redemption. It definitely has a dark energy.”
- Pete Burns, Kill Shelter
“The Necklace is a metaphorical vehicle for building personal resilience when dealing with violence and abuse on a daily basis. We had a shared vision for both the song and the video and it is a collaboration in the truest sense of the word.“
- Johan Lange, Agent Side Grinder
“Asylum” celebrates over 40 years of alternative and underground music and includes collaborative contributions from Ronny Moorings (Clan of Xymox), Agent Side Grinder, Stefan Netschio (Beborn
Beton), Ash Code, William Faith (The Bellwether Syndicate / Faith and the Muse), Valentina Veil (VV & the Void) and Antipole.
