Entertainment is an American post-punk band founded in 2002 in Athens, Georgia.
After the release of their first single "Safe at One," the band was signed by now-defunct Luminal Records, who released their second single "Patroness." A split 12-inch EP release with Canadian "progressive deathrock" band A Spectre Is Haunting Europe would soon follow, this time issued by Atlanta label Stickfigure Records. Entertainment released their debut album Gender in 2008 through Stickfigure. It went on to receive extensive critical acclaim and was voted the 2008 deathrock album of the year by Deathrock.com. A remastered vinyl version of Gender was then released the following year on New York label Duchess Archive.
Influences include The Doors, Love, Led Zeppelin, Bauhaus, Public Image Limited, The Cure, Gang of Four, Christian Death, Joy Division, The Birthday Party, dub, and krautrock.
