History[edit]

Formation and debut EP (2014)[edit]

The group was formed in St Albans in 2014, taking its name from an episode of Regular Show.[5] The band independently released its first EP, Look Alive, 23 June 2014.[6]

Signing and Nothing I Write You Can Change What You've Been Through (2015–2017)[edit]

On 17 March 2015, Trash Boat announced its signing to Hopeless Records[7] and released an EP titled Brainwork on 18 May 2015.[8] On 24 May 2015, the group performed at the 2015 Slam Dunk Festival.[9] In August 2015, Trash Boat supported New Found Glory on a tour in England.[10] The band's debut album, Nothing I Write You Can Change What You've Been Through, was released on 17 June 2016.[11] The group performed at the 2016 Reading and Leeds Festivals.[12] Throughout December of the same year, Trash Boat supported Beartooth on the group's UK tour.[13]

Crown Shyness (2018-Present)[edit]

The band announced their second studio album, Crown Shyness, on May 14th, 2018 alongside the lead single "Shade"[14]. The album was released on July 20th, debuting at No. 2 on Billboard's Heatseekers Albums Chart[15].

Musical style and influences[edit]

The group's music has been characterized as pop punk,[16][17] melodic hardcore,[18] skate punk[19][20] and post-hardcore[21][22] however heavier than a majority of their peers thanks to a "purer and grittier style", Duncan's raw and emotional voice and their punk (rather than pop)-leanings.[23][24] All of the band members have been influenced by pop punk and punk artists while vocalist Tobi Duncan's interests in hardcore punk and metal music and Bostock's ska influence have also shaped the group's sound.[25][26] The band have also cited influences from bands such as the Misfits, the Sex Pistols,[27] Rise Against, Thrice and Blink-182.[18]
