Trash Boat Share New Track, ‘Silence Is Golden’

St. Albans quintet Trash Boat have shared a new track, ‘Silence Is Golden’, with an accompanying music video.

The track follows the release of their previous single, ‘He’s So Good’, which they dropped back in February.

Check out ‘Silence Is Golden’ and its video below.

At the time of writing, it’s uncertain if the track will be a part of yet-to-be-announced EP or Full length record.

Trash Boat Announce UK Tour

St. Albans based quintet Trash Boat have announced details of a headline UK tour for October 2021

On the tour, frontman Tobi Duncan had this to say.

“It seems as though we have passed the most ignomin-ious musical year in recent history. Live performance is the tangible soul of any musicians career, without it, it feels like you’re married to someone who you can only ever talk to via video chat. It only feels partly real and endlessly frustrating.

An entire year of pent up energy is due to be released on stage. This will be Trash Boat like you have never seen us before. An entirely new beast, ready to take over the world. We look forward to everyone joining us for the ride. And trust us, we have much, much more to come.”

Here’s the tour dates.

October 2021

20th Stylus, Leeds

21st – Riverside, Newcastle

23rd – Cathouse, Glasgow

24th – Rebellion, Manchester

25th -Rescue Rooms, Nottingham

28th – The Loft, Southampton

29th – Electric Ballroom, London

Trash Boat Release Video For New Track, ‘He’s So Good’

Trash Boat have made their return!

The band have dropped a new track, ‘He’s So Good’, which is just filled to the brim with amazing riffs as well as vocal feats from Tobi Duncan. Check out the video as well! I have a good few times!

This is the first taste of new music from the band since their 2019 standalone single ‘Synthetic Sympathy’.

Duncan says on the track and video’s themes:

“It will never cease to amaze me that people can let such a benign thing as sexual preference or gender identity have such a dramatic impact on their concept of morality. Even to the point where they would abandon their child. As if the deviation from human presentation and partnership for procreation was an affront to the very essence of what it is to love.

This song is about someone who, even in the face of abandonment and spite, remains a positive and loyal element in the family. Looking past a lack of understanding to forgive and love parents who don’t love them back. Only to be shown that this apparently isn’t enough.

I see sexuality as a transcendental part of human identity to simply be known. THINK ABOUT HOW SIMPLE THAT IS. People fear what they don’t understand to such a degree that they try to force people to fit their ideal for the sake of some existential self preservation. It’s ridiculous that people shouldn’t be able to present and love the way they please.

You can look at the same thing from a different perspective and change it in its entirety. I’ve been civil and polite in rooms with people when I’ve seen proof of their abusive behaviour, but kept my mouth shut because it wasn’t my family or my business. What’s even worse is there are some people IN a family who will live their whole lives repressed by a similar feeling, neglected by people who don’t want to understand or love them. You sort of become complacent and try to find a way to placate them and be ‘respectful’ while adhering to superficial pleasantries. But there’s so much of you that just wants to tell them how you really feel and craves confrontation.

The more I think about it, the more I feel that it’s respect that isn’t returned on a fundamental level. It made me angry to imagine the type of people that would inflict their ignorance on someone who they are meant to guide and who I thought was one of the best people ever. It’s such a slippery form of cowardice that seems to hide behind an air of “don’t tell me how to life my life” as if defending their god given right to be an insufferable cunt..

They might hide behind mumbles or obscure references to higher authority, but really all they want to say is “I don’t like the way you are and I would change you if I could”. Fuck you.

I wanted to put that energy into a song. I want people to know that it is written with them in mind.

I want people to be able to use the topic as a point of pride and enjoy listening to music that makes them feel confident and heard”

Slam Dunk France Has Been Cancelled

Slam Dunk France has announced that the 2020 festival will no longer be taking place.

The France iteration of Slam Dunk Festival was set to be the debut edition, which would’ve taken place on May 30th 2020.

The lineup was set to have While She Sleeps, We Came As Romans, Trash Boat, Four Year Strong, Roam, Landmvrks, Grayscale and Chunk! No Captain Chunk.

The full statement can be read below:

“Three months ago, we were more than happy to share with you the arrival of the first edition of the Slam Dunk Festival in France, which was to be a huge celebration for all lovers of Alternative Rock.

but, as you know, because of the COVID-19 epidemic, all plans have been turned upside down. We had worked and moved forward on a postponement period later in 2020, which is why this press release was delayed, but it now appears too uncertain in many aspects.

It is regret that we must therefore announce that the first edition of Slam Dunk Festival France will ultimately not be able to take place in 2020, on the 30th May as initially planned, nor later in the year.

it was not a decision that was easy to make, but it was, without a doubt, the best that had to be made, for the benefit off all.

we are sincerely sorry for those who had planned their coming to Paris during this period. Refunds for tickets will soon be possible at points of purchase.

Be assured that we will come back stronger in 2021 to properly celebrate this first edition of the incredible Slam Dunk Festival in France. This is only a postponement.

We well you more as soon as possible on this page, get ready and most importantly, take care of yourself.

Thank you for your support.

Slam Dunk Festival France”

Music Video’s 26/07/18

The list is back. For those who are new to the blog, every Friday I post a weekly list of ten music videos. I scower the world of rock for the next best video and now I’m back blogging for all you wonderful people, the top ten list is back. So let’s get on with things and first up is Trash Boat. This is taken from their upcoming record, ‘Crown Shyness’ which is due to drop on July 13th.

Next I turn my attention to Waterparks with the video for ‘We Need To Talk’. It’s off their most recent record, ‘Entertainment’, which was released via Equal Vision Records.

 

Hopeless Records have signed a new band recently, called Lotus Eater and the Scottish Metalers already have released a new video. Check out ‘Break It’ below.

 

And a little more Popier sound as of now. Fall Out Boy have dropped the video for ‘Bishops’s Knife Track, only two weeks after Pete Wentz tased a to-do list via Twitter.

 

Where’s Like Pacific been? Making a goofy video of course! But now, the Canadian Punks are ready to show you the new video for ‘Self Defeated’.

 

Going to everyone’s favourite Emo rapper in the form of Nothing, Nowhere and front his third full-length record, ‘Ruiner’ you can check out ‘Rejecter’ below.

 

Following the departure of Douglas Robinson last year, it was easy for any band to call it a day. But, that wasn’t the case for Night Verses. One Year on, they’ve released a new record and here is ‘Vice Wave’.

 

Now, Sweedish rockers Normandie are entering a new era for the band as they’re gearing up to release a new track but for now, we have the infectious track ‘Ecstasy’ for you to view below.

 

Now another band who are setting off on a new era are Set It Off. They’ve been away for quite a while now, and the plans have come into fruition. They’re releasing a new record but there is no release date as of yet. On the other hand, we have their new track, ‘Killer In The Mirror’ to keep us preoccupied.

 

And for the last new band for the list, who else is there to put on than Twenty One Pilots? They’ve recently announced their new album, ‘Trench’ and what else can they announce other than a tour? How about a music video for the track, ‘Nico And The Niners’? Check it out below.

And that’s it for another week here on the weekly music video list. Be sure to check back next week for another list of the best music videos released in the last week.
