‘KEVIN’

 THE NEW SINGLE RELEASED TODAY ON INFECTIOUS MUSIC

 

Kevin’ is the new single from Cabbage, released today on Infectious Music. 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!!"

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.”

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.
