Manchester post-punks CABBAGE release a wiry tribute to the nerve-jarring electricity of their home city in new single, ‘Get Outta My Brain’, along with confirming details about their second album.
It’s only the second time they’ve emerged 2020, the previous time to fuel second album rumours with the release of Coronation Street-inspired single, ‘You’ve Made An Artform (From Falling To Pieces)’, just as the UK’s COVID-19 lockdown took effect.
Cabbage now officially set the reels running on a technicolour sequel to the cracked-screen noir of their debut album, Nihilistic Glamour Shots, which hit the UK Top 30 in 2018.

Appearing to fade out their first, epic chapter in brooding black and white, the five-piece finally turn the page with Amanita Pantherina, released on 25 September, finding themselves a cartoonish state of heightened, neon-hued consciousness, facing down the darkness of modern Britain with renewed, energetic abandon.
‘Get Outta My Brain’ chases the shadows of Shaun Ryder and the fast burning focus of his late-90s Black Grape-era, cutting gonzo punk fuzz with sharp-focus lyrical intent to affect an intravenous dose of similarly streetwise intellectualism.

Older and wiser, yet unchanged in their mission, Cabbage – made up of Lee Broadbent (vocals), Joe Martin (vocals/guitar), Eoghan Clifford (guitar), Paddy Neville (bass) and Asa Morley (drums) – bound from the studio having maintained the fizzing electricity of a band supercharged by the injustices they see in the world around them.
Amarantha Pantherina will be the first album entirely produced and recorded by the band themselves, in their own Brassica Studios, whilst bringing on board long-term collaborator, Chris Stockton to assist with technical levers.
