Trash Talk – Awake


Trash Talk is an American hardcore punk band from Sacramento, California, formed in 2005. They have toured all around the world including Japan and Europe, as well as performed in many festivals in support of their releases which helped give the band recognition from publications including Rolling Stone.

Formed in 2005, Trash Talk soon released a demo on Sell Our Souls Records, as well as a split with Bay Area band Steel Trap in 2006. Later that year, they signed on to Rumble Records to record their debut album Walking Disease. Trash Talk would later sign to Malfunction Records (imprint of Deathwish Inc.) in 2007 for the release of their EP Plagues; which would later form a compilation with Walking Disease. After extensive touring, they would eventually leave Deathwish Inc. to manage their own label, Trash Talk Collective.

In 2008, Trash Talk traveled to Chicago with Steve Albini to work on their full-length album. 2009 saw the release of their single “East of Eden”, featuring vocals from Keith Morris of Black Flag/Circle Jerks. After the release of “East of Eden,” Trash Talk kept a regular tour schedule and would go overseas.

During their touring, Trash Talk participated in a live session for British radio station BBC Radio 1 showcasing songs from their latest album Eyes & Nines, released physically in Europe and digitally throughout on May 17, 2010. The album came out on CD in the United States on June 8, 2010 with the vinyl releasing on June 21, 2010. Trash Talk performed at the 2011 Soundwave Festival in February/March 2011. Trash Talk were added to the 2011 lineups of Download in June and Hevy Music Festival in August, although they pulled out of Hevy at the eleventh hour.

A new 5 song EP entitled Awake was released October 11 on True Panther Sounds.

On May 30, 2012, it was announced that Trash Talk had signed to Odd Future Records, making them the first act not part of the Odd Future hip-hop collective to sign to the label. They will release their new album 119 on Odd Future Records in partnership with their Trash Talk Collective imprint and Sony BMG Music Group’s RED Distribution. It has been announced by Odd Future Records that the new album will be released on October 9th.
