Trash Boat smashed into Birmingham on the first date of their UK headline tour, bringing along Capstan, Doll Skin and Woes. The energy of the night was incredible, crowd surfers flying over the barrier every few minutes as everybody screamed along to their favourite lyrics. The heavy riffs and pounding beat created an atmosphere of adrenaline that left you feeling obliged to bounce your head along, forming a family of rock-lovers as the audience came together in the infamous way that fans of the genre always do. The headline tour had followed on from a tour in Europe, and continues through to Glasgow on the 15th September.
