SHARE THE VIDEO FOR CURRENT SINGLE  ‘POSTMODERNIST CALIGULA’ 

FROM ‘NIHILISTIC GLAMOUR SHOTS’ THE DEBUT ALBUM OUT NOW: 

 

Cabbage have shared the video to current single ‘Postmodernist Caligula’, available now on Infectious Music. Directed by Matt Jones, the video stars Gaz Stanley and Ray Boddington from cult Manchester buskers The Piccadilly Rats, who appeared in Cabbage’s video for previous single ‘Kevin’.

Say Cabbage: “We Cabbage here and now, deliver an accompanied visual piece to our bastardised ode to villains, Postmodernist Caligula. Many thanks to Matt Jones and Adam Riozzi who took our amateur video making pilgrims to a position that is wholly considered, professional. Finally there ain’t no show without the STARS and in our show we are proud to present the folk who came down to help us out and the finest double act Mancunia has seen, Gaz Stanley and Ray Boddington from The Piccadilly Rats. FISTS!”

THE DEBUT ALBUM OUT MARCH 30, 2018 ON INFECTIOUS MUSIC

CONTAINS THE BBC 6MUSIC PLAYLISTED SINGLES ‘CELEBRATION OF A DISEASE’  & ‘GIBRALTAR APE’ PLUS NEW SINGLE ‘ARMS OF PLEONEXIA’

HEADLINE TOUR & ‘GLAMOUR AT THEE RITZ’ EVENT IN MANCHESTER 

‘Nihilistic Glamour Shots’ is the debut album from Cabbage, to be released 30 th March 2018 on Infectious Music. Listen to the new single ‘Arms Of Pleonexia’, premiered last night on Radio 1 by Huw Stephens, here .


Produced by James Skelly and Rich Turvey (Blossoms, The Coral, She Drew The Gun) at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool, ‘Nihilistic Glamour Shots’ is an album that confirms Cabbage as one of the most nuanced bands in years. Equally drawn to socialist politics and mucking about, they’re devotees of both big choruses and anarchic totems like GG Allin, Genesis P Orridge and Butthole Surfers. It’s a mixture writ large throughout ‘Nihilistic Glamour Shots’, from the frenetic opening salvo of ‘Preach To The Converted’, ‘Arms Of Pleonexia’ and ‘Molotov Alcopop’, via ‘Perdurabo’s swampy blues and wild funk of ‘Exhibit A’ to the devastating seven-minute finale ‘Subhuman 2.0’. It’s hard to think of another band who could write a magnificently infectious two-minute frantic anthem and then call it ‘Obligatory Castration’. Only two album tracks have been heard before, the BBC6 Music playlisted singles ‘Celebration Of A Disease’ and ‘Gibraltar Ape’. Indeed, the savagely brilliant ‘Postmodernist Caligula’ was written and recorded in a matter of days at the end of the album recording sessions.       

There’s been a weight of fevered expectation around a full Cabbage album ever since their startling debut EP ‘Le Chou’ arrived at the start of 2016. Since then, the Manchester band have released 36 songs, played well over 200 gigs – and been at the centre of two media storms. Faced with a band as uncompromising as Cabbage, it’s disturbing if unsurprising that untruths have clouded the positivity of their intent. The reality is that Cabbage are a band to believe in, and ‘Nihilistic Glamour Shots’ is the most thrilling way imaginable to convey their message.

While it broadens Cabbage’s sound further still from their already eclectic previous five EPs, ‘Nihilistic Glamour Shots’ also does a superb job of capturing the raw energy of their freewheeling live shows. The band have kept the gigs fresh partly by theming each tour, with autumn’s Healing Brexit Towns Experiment living up to its name.

Cabbage head out on tour later this month, supported by The Rhythm Method, and will embark on more dates in April following the release of the album with support from She Drew The Gun. On May 19 th , the band will curate ‘Glamour At Thee Ritz’ at Manchester’s O2 Ritz. Starting at 5pm and headlined by Cabbage, the event across 2 rooms at The Ritz will feature PINS, The Blinders, Rhythm Method, Witch Fever, Lady Bird, Sports Team + more to be announced over the coming weeks.

 UNVEIL BRAND NEW VIDEO FOR LATEST SINGLE ‘KEVIN’

CO-STARRING CULT MANCHESTER BUSKERS THE PICCADILLY RATS 

Cabbage have today unveiled the new video for their current single ‘Kevin’, available now on Infectious Music. Co-starring cult Manchester busking band The Piccadilly Rats, the video was shot earlier this month in Piccadilly Gardens and directed by Dom Foster

 

Premiered on Radio 1 earlier this week by Huw Stephens, ‘Kevin’ is a re-recording of the lead track from their 2016 debut EP ‘Le Chou’. A fan favourite and Cabbage’s live set closer, ‘Kevin’ was produced by James Skelly & Rich Turvey (Blossoms, She Drew The Gun) at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios. ‘Kevin’ is the Manchester band’s first stand-alone single after a series of acclaimed EPs, the latest of which, August’s ‘The Extended Play Of Cruelty’, contained the BBC 6Music playlisted track ‘Celebration Of A Disease’.

"LORD KEVIN HAS GONE FULL CIRCLE!” say Cabbage of the single. “In our prepubescent years, ar Kevin never got the adoration we feel it deserved. So when we became audio associates with James Skelly and Rich Turvey, they were very interested to put their own spin on it. So to celebrate all things Kevin, here's the Parr Street (Skeleton Key mix) single, soon to be followed by other versions of the first born. YAWZAH!!" 

 SHARE NEW VIDEO FOR ‘CELEBRATION OF A DISEASE’ WATCH HERE:

 

Cabbage have today aired the new video for ‘Celebration Of A Disease’, lifted from the forthcoming EP ‘The Extended Play Of Cruelty’, to be released on August 25th on CD, Cassette and 10 inch vinyl, and available to stream now. Watch the video, directed by Dom Foster, here: 


The Manchester band recently premiered EP track ‘A Network Betrayal’, described as “a tongue firmly in cheek depiction of train travel in Northern England,” by Cabbage co-vocalist Joe Martin. “When my brother (who actually works for Network Rail) heard it he told me to 'buy a fucking ticket'. The more kind hearted rail staff I bump into, the guiltier I feel about writing it, but studying the varying behavioural traits of different conductors has always been fascinating. All quotes are genuine, having been frantically scribbled down during journeys.”

‘The Extended Play Of Cruelty’ EP was produced by James Skelly and Richard Turvey at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios, and is Cabbage’s first release since signing to new label Infectious Music (Alt-J, Drenge, DMA’s).

 ANNOUNCE NEW EP ‘THE EXTENDED PLAY OF CRUELTY’

RELEASED AUGUST 25

 

Cabbage have announced details of their forthcoming EP ‘The Extended Play Of Cruelty’, to be released on August 25th on CD, Cassette and 10 inch vinyl, and available as a digital EP from July 21st. Produced by James Skelly and Richard Turvey at Liverpool’s Parr Street Studios, the five-track EP is the Manchester band’s first release since signing to new label Infectious Music (Alt-J, Drenge, DMA’s). 

“The Extended Play Of Cruelty is our revisited conquest to our pop psychological platitudes,” say Cabbage of the EP. “The deceit of man tests all in a moment of clarity and we deliver our position in a long search for Utopia. Our blend of fervent distain is focused on local frustrations, whilst celebrating those who shall rise through the ashes.”

Listen to lead track ‘Celebration Of A Disease’ here

 

The track was inspired by an essay on pornography by veteran Throbbing Gristle and Chris & Cosey performance artist Cosey Fanni Tutti. “Cosey talked about porn in the 70s,” explains Cabbage’s Lee Broadbent. “You’d expect it to have been a nasty business then, but she said there was something artistic about it at that time. But she says it’s now pure capitalism, where everyone – especially the women – is treated badly, that there’s no artistic platform in it. Pornography now and lad culture put massive expectations on the relationship between men and women. It creates barriers between men and women, and sends out the message to men that it’s OK to be chauvinistic. It’s the celebration of a disease.”

Cabbage’s busy summer of Festival appearances includes two shows at Glastonbury this weekend (Left Field Stage 7.30pm Friday, John Peel Stage 3.30pm Saturday), and also includes Reading & Leeds, Latitude, TRNSMT, Festival No.6 and Kendal Calling.

Having sold out every headline date they have played this year, Cabbage recently announced details of a headline tour for September & October 2017. They will be supported by Doncaster’s The Blinders, Liverpool’s Queen Zee and The Sasstones, and Proletariat, from Cabbage’s hometown of Mossley, Greater Manchester. 

Cabbage will headline The Scala next Thursday 29th June.
