As the working week ends we are lucky enough to be in Stoke tonight witnessing Cabbage in all their cacophonous glory as they celebrate IVW in the only way they know how; sheer anarchy.

The band's debut LP Nihilistic Glamour Shots is set to be released on 30th March, and is the follow up to the Mossley outfit's 2017 12 track EP Young, Dumb and Full Of..., and has already spawned a typically powerful, politically charged lead single in 'Arms Of Pleonexia' which you can check out below.

You can catch all the action from the Sugarmill by following us on Snapchat at 'skiddleuk' - and if you keep an eye out on Twitter (@skiddle), you will be treated to live updates from Leeds' Brudenell Social Club as Deer Tick exhibit their alt country goodness, plus we'll also be in Liverpool to witness Steve Lamacq's BBC Radio 6 Music session with Idles.
