TRASH BOAT SHARE NEW SINGLE “SYNTHETIC SYMPATHY”

EUROPEAN TOUR WITH CAPSTAN AND DOLL SKIN KICKS OFF NEXT MONTH

August 29, 2019 – Trash Boat have shared a new single, “Synthetic Sympathy” available everywhere to stream or download. Fans can check out the visual video below.

Yesterday, the band premiered the single exclusively with Kerrang!.

Speaking to the song, Trash Boat frontman Tobi Duncan said, “When you’re experiencing problems in life that are long term or permanent, it often alters the way in which your friends and family interact with you.”

“Such a prominent thing can become the first port of call for conversation or serve as a platform for people to offer sympathy, as this is really the only thing available,” he continued. “I’m not saying this is bad. I’m fortunate enough to have people I know that love me and know I love them. I think being honest and discussing these things are important. People need support.”

This song is just a source for me to vent about the looming dread of life, perpetuated by a never ending chain of equally inconsequential conversations, that after so much time and repetition, only serve to remind me that it exists until it doesn’t feel real anymore.”

Trash Boat’s latest full length album Crown Shyness was released last summer via Hopeless Records. The album explores similarly disparate emotions, juxtaposing hard-fought introspection against external strife to create a propulsive, captivating blend of punk and melodic hardcore. It it was produced by Andrew Wade (A Day To Remember, Neck Deep).

The band will kick off their European tour with Capstan and Doll Skin next month in Zurch, Switzerland. They’ll embark on a tour with Don Broco, Sleep On It, and Selfish Things in September and the first half of October, then round out the month with a headlining tour with HoldClose.
