Cabbage unveil music video for 'Celebration Of A Disease'
Cabbage have unveiled a music video for new track, Celebration Of A Disease.
The track is taken from the band’s upcoming EP, The Extended Play of Cruelty, due for release in August. The video, directed by Dom Foster, plays like an acid trip at a children’s party – complete with cheap fancy dress and your nan’s best vanilla sheet cake.
The video appears alongside the release of another new track from The Extended Play of Cruelty. Taking inspiration from Britain’s ongoing national rail crisis, A Network Betrayal sees Cabbage depict the fragile state of train travel in Northern England.
Co-vocalist Joe Martin says of the song: “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.”
Following a run of late summer festival appearances, Cabbage will bring their ‘Healing Brexit Towns Experiment’ headline tour to locations around the UK throughout September and October.
The Extended Play of Cruelty is released on 25th August via Infectious Music.
