Manchester indie rock band Cabbage, with support from She Drew The Gun, will stop by Norwich on April 13, the sixth date of their upcoming UK tour.

Formed in 2015 in Mossley they have racked up an impressive 200 gigs and released 36 songs so far, with their debut album ‘Nihilistic Glamour Shots’ due for release soon.

They describe their style as an ‘idiosyncratic, satirical attack in the form of discordant neo post-punk’. Whatever that means expect a freewheeling, highly politicised, energetic and anarchic rock and roll show.

“We’ve seen how, in the truest sense, a lot of Britain is sad,” sighs Lee Broadbent, the more excitable, puppyish of Cabbage’s two frontmen, in contrast to the calmer, more considered Joe Martin.

“The Brexit tour brought home how devastated a lot of small towns have become thanks to Tory policies. Practically, there might not be much we can do, but at least we’ll go there and give the crowds some escapism for the night.”

Tickets for the Norwich show are available from the Norwich Arts Centre Box Office website for £14.50 advance.
