Controversial northern post-punkgarage band Cabbage will hit the road again in the autumn for a headline UK tour. The group, from Mossley, Greater Manchester, have sold out all of their headline dates so far this year.
Supports on the new tour are Doncaster’s The Blinders, Queen Zee and The Sasstones from Liverpool and Mossley’s Proletariat. Tickets will be on sale from 9th June. Ahead of the new tour, Cabbage are playing festivals including Glastonbury, Reading and Leeds, Latitude, Y Not, Truck and Festival No 6.

Cabbage’s album — ‘Young, Dumb And Full Of…’ — is out now via Skeleton Key Records and comprises a compilation of their first three EPs. A 1,000-edition double vinyl version of the LP was released for Record Store Day. Cabbage have now signed to Infectious Music.
Cabbage hit the mainstream press after a tweeter called Nicole Rushworth made allegations of sexual assault by frontman Lee Broadbent involving an audience member during a support slot for Kasabian at London’s O2 Kentish Town Forum in April. The band denied the allegations. “We completely deny the accusations,” they said, “We 100% support SafeGigs For Women and everyone.”
Cabbage are Broadbent (lead vocals), Joe Martin (vocals, guitar), Eoghan Clifford (guitar), Stephen Evans (bass) and Asa Morley (drums).
