Trash Boat have announced details of their upcoming third album Don't You Feel Amazing? – the follow-up to 2018's Crown Shyness.

The St Albans pop-punks are set to release LP number three on August 13 via Hopeless Records, with the album opener and title-track available to hear now (check it out below). Vocalist Tobi Duncan says of the song: "Sometimes the most effective way to tolerate something difficult or painful is to numb yourself and learn to live with it. If enough time passes only the most intense elements of life can bring you back to reality and make you feel alive, the quickest way to achieve this usually disregards your long term health for short term bliss.

"This song is what I fight every day, it’s what I’m holding myself back from becoming, it’s hedonism, its drugs, it’s sex, it’s excess, it never stops and it wants all of me. This song is a way of living in that moment, like a roleplay, I get to channel that energy and be disgusting for a few minutes a set.

"We watch horror movies and want more gore and to feel more fear. We enter mosh-pits and want to simulate violence. We take drugs to simulate happiness. I wrote this song so I could have all of this and more when I sing it. I get to control it instead of it controlling me."

Tobi adds of the record as a whole: "The album itself is unapologetic and candid wherever it goes. I’ve taken a far more direct approach lyrically and want to leave little to the imagination. We are exposed to so much of the world everyday now, to comprehend everything going on today is too much for any one person. It’s all inconsistent and overwhelming. Each song represents my frustration, desires, struggle, hedonism, pain and redemption while being bluntly honest about each topic.”
