Modern life is war: we are Wargasm. Three years ago this project began as a retaliation to the stagnant state of rock music around the world. A lot of synth and hip-hop has the same energy and elements as metal. Genre is dead and we’re living off of “Energy.” Wargasm was born in the right place and the right time to capture that feeling. This should be sexy and violent. Whatever people think, they’ll think. We hope you find something from it, but we also don’t care if you don’t. All we can do is guide you here. We called our mixtape Explicit, because Rock & Roll lost its way and abandoned its taboos. We’re here to add some new ones. We’re here to do horny rock music, because no one else is. We’re here to confuse you. We’re here to prove everyone wrong. We’re here to make you say, “What the fuck?”
A few years ago, they met and incorporated synthesizers into their bloodthirsty brand of metallic mayhem. The single “Spit.” ripped a hole through streaming services with over 3.7 million Spotify streams. Buzz increased as they dropped “Rage All Over,” “Salma Hayek,” and “Scratchcard Feeling.” NME named them among “100 Acts to Watch in 2021,” and Alternative Press touted them on its “New Bands To Watch” cover in 2021. They took home “Best UK Breakthrough” at The Heavy Music Awards. Beyond gigs with Yungblud and Creeper, they left audiences stunned at Reading and Leeds Festival, Download Pilot Festival, and Bloodstock.
Now, these two mavericks take no prisoners, give no fucks, and have heaps of fun on their 2022 mixtape Explicit [slowplay/Republic Records] and forthcoming full-length debut.
