Ready to pop off in 2023, dynamic London-based duo WARGASM serve up an explosive and energetic new single entitled “Bang Ya Head” [feat. Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit]. It only heightens anticipation for the arrival of their anxiously awaited debut album Venom on October 27th.

On the new song WARGASM said: “When I was working in bars it always drove me insane how much it costs us to live, and how little money we make. The worlds going fucking crazy and everything’s getting so expensive – how the fuck are we meant to buy a life? It’s just this nightmare cycle until you get lucky. Like banging your head against a brick wall over and over and over – you bang your head until you break your fucking neck.
We took that energy and put it onto a guitar at our friend’s house in LA, then a microphone in a bathroom somewhere so the neighbors weren’t too pissed off, then we asked the one and only Fred Durst if he wanted to join in and he did – now we have this monstrosity. We’ve been waiting so damn long for you to hear this……” – Sam Matlock
“Bang Ya Head” distills WARGASM’s controlled chaos into a focused and frenetic burst of energy. The track itself bounces between glitchy rave-ready electronics, gnashing teeth-gritting guitars, and quotable rhymes only to culminate on a lyrical volley between Milkie Way and Fred. He urges, “Keep banging your head until you’re breaking your neck.” Milkie counters with a nod to Bizkit’s classic “My Generation” with the warning, “You’re in the jungle punk!” After the band opened for Limp Bizkit last year on their 2022 tour they teamed up on the soon to be iconic track.
The moment doubles as a figurative passing of the torch, enshrining WARGASM as boundary-breaking nu metal’s heir apparent.
It follows the single “Do It So Good.” The latter has already piled up half-a-million total streams and counting in addition to earning critical acclaim. Beyond plugs from the likes of UPSET and more, Revolver summed it up succinctly as “fiery.” Right out of the gate, Louder named it one of “the best alt. rock songs you’ll hear this week,” and proclaimed, “Rowdy and ferocious, ‘Do It So Good’ sees the fast-rising alt rock duo bring the rave to the mosh pit as they fuse together The Prodigy’s anarchic sound with a lethal metal edge.”
The music video for the track equally matched the intensity as it sees Milkie Way and Sam Matlock performing live and in a distorted glitch screen video tunnel. Check out the official music video for “Do It So Good” HERE.
In addition to the album, fans can pre-order limited vinyl variants and exclusive merch at www.wargasm.online.
Last year, they unleashed EXPLICIT: THE MIXXXTAPE. It piled up 10 million-plus streams, earned raves from the likes of PAPER Magazine, Loudwire (who hailed it as one of their “Best New Debut Rock + Metal Albums of 2022) and Revolver Magazine who said “Wargasm don’t just have the nu-metal sound, they have the swagger.” Not to mention they have previously been featured on the covers of Alternative Press and KERRANG! Plus, they took home the first-ever “New Noise Award” at the 2022 KERRANG! Awards.
