Cabbage today announce their debut album Nihilistic Glamour Shots will be released on March 20th via Infectious Music. The artwork and tracklisting can be found below. The band have also dropped new single Arms Of Pleonexia as a first taster for their first full length. Listen below.

The album was produced by James Skelly and Rich Turvey (Blossoms, The Coral, She Drew The Gun) at Parr Street Studios in Liverpool and captures the raw energy of their live shows. Only two album tracks have been heard before, previous singles Celebration Of A Disease and Gibraltar Ape.

Expectation for a full Cabbage album has been around ever since their debut EP Le Chou arrived at the start of 2016. Since then, the Manchester band have released 36 songs and played well over 200 gigs .Despite having released a double-vinyl compilation of their first three EPs for Record Store Day 2017, Nihilistic Glamour Shots is Cabbage’s debut album proper.

Cabbage formed in Mossley, near Manchester, in November 2015. Co-vocalist Lee Broadbent and Eoghan Clifford (guitar) had been drummers in their previous bands, while Joe Martin (co-vocalist) was a promising performance poet. Dinner Lady from Le Chou was initially one of Joe’s poems. Bassist Steve Evans had the most experience, having been in several bands before. Drummer Asa Morley was the last to join, recruited in early 2016.

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. All dates can be found below.
