Two of the UK's most exciting bands – Trash Boat and Wargasm – have collided on a brand-new single.

Following both groups' appearances at last month's awesome Download Pilot, Wargasm's superstar vocalist / bassist Milkie Way has teamed up with the St Albans gang on Bad Entertainment, which is taken from their upcoming third album Don't You Feel Amazing? (due out in full on August 13 via Hopeless Records).

Frontman Tobi Duncan shares of the track: "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 hand crafted 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, yet people believe they understand the world from an hour of TV a day to make judgements on their peers. It’s a farce.”

The vocalist adds of working with Milkie: "We never imagined what Milkie would bring to this song: she truly elevated it. She’s a total star and is going to take over this game.”
