Light Asylum Signs to Mexican Summer

The Brooklyn duo of producer Bruno Coviello and vocalist Shannon Funchess (a.k.a. Light Asylum) has been in a label limbo of sorts since self-releasing the excellent In Tension EP last year. Well, consider the label-less period of the Light Asylum saga finished as fellow Brooklynites Mexican Summer have penned a deal with the group, which is said to include a proper release of the aforementioned EP and—the big news—an eventual full-length to come in 2012. All this comes whilst the pair are taking their brand of shadowy, '80s-influenced productions around the US with electro-hybrid rockers Yacht. You'll find the remaining tour dates, along with In Tension's intense new cover art, and a video for the EP's closing track, "Dark Allies," below.
