British punk rock band Trash Boat has shared their brand new single 'Synthetic Sympathy.' The song is the first piece of new music the band released since 2018' album 'Crown Shyness.' You can check the song below, and find the interview we did with Tobi Duncan earlier this year HERE.
“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,” shared frontman Tobi Duncan with Kerrang! “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."
“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.”
