Hear Cabbage’s new EP featuring songs about Steven Avery and brainwashed soldiers

'Uber Capitalist Death Trade' follows support on Blossoms' tour

Cabbage have announced new EP ‘Uber Capitalist Death Trade’.

Out today (September 30), the four-song EP features ‘Free Steven Avery’, their song about the prisoner from Making A Murderer, which also has the chorus “Death to Donald Trump”.

‘Uber Capitalist Death Trade’ follows the band’s support slot on Blossoms‘ tour, which saw them play London Forum last night. Their set ended with ‘Free Steven Avery’ as shirtless singers Lee Broadbent and Joe Martin gave each other piggybacks across the stage.

In a statement, Cabbage said of the EP: “Exhibit A. ‘Uber Capitalist Death Trade’ is the first of its set. It pays homage to the tragedy of British soldiers being brainwashed and utilised, then either killed or spat out by the same vicious machine it salutes. It pays tribute to human nature being unforgiving and the pain of the vacuous socially cleansed cities versus the ghostly fallen towns of Britain. It prays to the gargantuan presence that is the United States Of Freedom and it begs to be punished by the sweet sweet pseudo tales of Manchester. Read a book, steal from a billionaire, listen to Cabbage. Exhibit A.”

‘Uber Capitalist Death Trade’ is released on The Coral singer James Skelly’s record label Skeleton Key, the label Blossoms released their early singles on. The full tracklisting is: ‘Uber Capitalist Death Trade’; ‘Fickle’; ‘Tell Me Lies About Manchester’; ‘Free Steven Avery’.

It’s the five-piece’s second EP, following ‘Le Choux’, which spawned the single ‘Dinner Lady’ released on The Charlatans singer Tim Burgess’ record label O Genesis.
