The Asian Emo Train About To Get Even More Great – Playburst [Malaysia]

Wow…wasn’t ready for this.

The Asian emo train has been on a fine run lately with bands from all over Asia releasing incredible music these past couple of years making our job at easy as pie. We have had one job since day one 4 years ago, put up daily news. Thanks to bands like Chinese Football (China), Sans Visage (Japan), Tapestry (Singapore), Milo Dinosaur (Malaysia), Wellsaid (Hong Kong), Beeswax (Indonesia), amongst hundreds of others…

Today we came across this great in-the-practice-room video of a new Malaysian emo band called Playburst and yes, while it’s rough, you can EASILY hear how great this band is going to be. Their social media page also has photos of them currently holed up in a studio too…so we can expect to hear recorded material pretty damn quick.

[UPDATE] The band was kind enough to let us know they’re holed up recording the band’s debut EP which will be released on cassette as well as digitally soon. The band features our homies in Tools Of The Trade, Couple, The Fridays, Crack Guilty so no wonder the music is of insanely HIGH caliber.

And that image above? Damn band is ticking all the right boxes! is an underground Asian music news website created for the sole purpose of supporting our own world. We support all bands and genres HOWEVER we do not support nor have any sympathy for homophobic, racist, sexist rhetoric in lyrical content or band material. UNITE ASIA!
