Provocative nu-metal duo who strive to be an agent of chaos

Creating a soundtrack to people’s rage is part of what drives Wargasm. After Sam Matlock’s band Dead! broke up, the singer and guitarist started sending song ideas to Milkie Way, an international model and session bassist for Barns Courtney. The London-based duo originally met and formed a friendship through the underground music scene. Inspired by Limp Bizkit and Radiohead as well as acts like Rina Sawayama and Poppy, they started making bedroom demos together as Wargasm, dubbing their sound “angry music for sad people”.

Their debut song Post Modern Rhapsody was released in August 2019, and they played their first show a few weeks later.

Among Wargasm’s other early tracks were SPIT. and Backyard Bastards, which they wrote in 2020 at the start of the first coronavirus lockdown. The lyrics tapped into their anger at politicians as well as the feeling that the world was a dark, heavy place.

They also released a ferocious cover of N.E.R.D’s Lapdance, and continued their string of singles with God Of War and Rage All Over, arriving in late 2020. Being unable to play live shows, the nu-metalheads performed live stream shows as part of Yungblud’s virtual tour and Slipknot’s online Knotfest: Pulse Of The Maggots.

Wargasm kicked off 2021 with two more post-apocalyptic angst-filled singles: Your Patron Saints and Pyro Pyro.

In July 2021, Wargasm were added to the bill for August’s Bloodstock Open Air Festival. The pair also announced two headline shows in London and Manchester for 25 and 30 November 2021.


Wargasm are playing two headline shows in the UK on 25 and 30 November 2021.

Wargasm are in the line-up for Bloodstock 2021 at Catton Park, Walton-On-Trent. They will also be visiting the following UK venues and cities in late 2021:

  • O2 Academy Islington, London
  • Rebellion, Manchester

Tickets for Wargasm’s tour dates go on sale from 10:00 on Friday 4 August 2021. Tickets for Bloodstock 2021 are on sale now.
