Neighbourhood On Tour Presents Cabbage, The Shimmer Band & April

Earlier this month Neighbourhood Festival brought together 100s of the most impressive artists and bands from around the world for its inaugural launch in Manchester.

Following its critical acclaim and sell out success Neighbourhood is branching out on tour across sixteen major UK cities in 2017 showcasing three of the UK’s best new bands Cabbage, The Shimmer Band and April.

Manchester five-piece Cabbage are one of the most hotly tipped bands right now and have just released their ‘Necroflat In The Palace EP’ on James Skelly’s Skeleton Key Records, the original home of Blossoms and home of She Drew the Gun. The four track EP is the second in a series of three monthly EP’s and follows the release of ‘Uber Capitalist Death Trade EP’ in September. Championed by the likes of Radio 1, BBC 6Music, Radio X, The Guardian, NME and i-D Magazine, they serve up an idiosyncratic, satirical attack in the form of discordant neo post-punk and will headline each night of the tour. The guys are currently on their own extensive headline tour which included a sold-out hometown show at Manchester’s Ruby Lounge.

Psychedelic power-rockers The Shimmer Band represent Bristol’s ever growing live music scene. Following on from the anthemic BBC 6Music favourite ‘Freedom’, they returned this summer with their third single ‘Sunkick’. Having already played storming sets this year at Reading & Leeds, The Great Escape, Isle of Wight and Y Not festivals, with The Stereophonics and The Vaccines at Cardiff City Football Stadium, The Shimmer Band embark on a massive UK tour this autumn.

April are teenage sensations who found a mutual outlook on modern life. Hailing from the South Midlands, they have been touring the live circuit for a few years and have been dubbed as one of the best emerging guitar bands. Having just premiered their second single ‘Open Mind’ with Clash Magazine and had the track debut with BBC Introducing Coventry and Warwickshire, April are a definite one to watch this year.

Neighbourhood on tour will guarantee the best hotly tipped home-grown talent and artists from across the globe and will take place in some of the UK’s coolest small and independent venues.
