One of the UK’s quickest rising bands, Trash Boat, their newest track ‘Bad Entertainment’ featuring spitfire vocalist/bassist Milkie Way of the up-and-coming metalcore duo Wargasm via Hopeless Records.
Frontman Tobi Duncan shares this on the meaning of today’s release: “Media these days seems to be dead set on constructing a binary rather than accurately representing current events. It’s a divisive means of forcing people to make a choice between one extreme or the other. In or out, us or them. It’s so easily curated and it knows its audience. It’s an entertainment medium like any other, driven by ratings, views, and money.
You watch one channel, read one paper, and have one ‘understanding’ of the goings-on in the world, not knowing that it has been handcrafted to fit a specific ethos and keep you compliant. Gone are the days (if they ever existed) of objectivity, there’s too much nuance in the world for any one person to truly understand it all.m, yet people believe they understand the world from an hour of TV a day to make judgments on their peers. It’s a farce”.
On the inclusion of Milkie Way, Duncan adds: “We never imagined what Milkie would bring to this song, she truly elevated it to one of the best tracks on the album. She’s a total star is going to take over this game.”
