ALTERNATIVE music fans seeking escape from manufactured pop and electronic beats on nights out are being offered ‘Asylum’.

It will be all things rock, metal and punk on the dancefloor when the Asylum club night returns to Warrington after a five-year absence.

It will be held at FC2 in Barbauld Street on Friday, March 27, and the next date has already been earmarked for April 24.

Lee Harman, who runs Warrington Music [WAM], launched Asylum in 2013 and in its heyday the club welcomed acts like rap metal band Hacktivist and alternative rockers Blitz Kids.

The former Woolston High student said: “Initially we were hoping to bring these rock nights back last year but, for a number of reasons, it wasn’t meant to be.

“But in the past 12 months we’ve had Old Town House and Live Bar close who catered for a less mainstream music taste and with a recent rock night at Bruno’s coming to an end, we’re please to have Kyle Doran join us on the DJ roster.

“Alternative music has been enjoying a resurgence in recent years. Slipknot are selling out arenas, Neck Deep from Wrexham are showing the Americans the way when it comes to pop punk and thanks to our friends at Download Festival, we will have a pair of tickets to give away at a future event – keep an eye on the socials for details.”

Doors open at 10pm and entry is £3. Those attending must be 18 or over
