YOUTH MAN & CASSELS + SPECIAL GUESTS
Following the release of their critically acclaimed EP Wax on Venn Records and a much-lauded set at the hallowed punk ground of Rebellion Festival, fast-rising Birmingham noise-punk trio Youth Man return to headline the Actress & Bishop.
Last year the trio enjoyed a support tour with LA soul-punx letlive. as well as their own run of UK headline dates in celebration of the EP, and appearances at Afropunk London, Underground Festival, and the Roundhouse Punk Weekender celebrating the 40th anniversary of the punk movement, where they were described as “a chaotic, shrieking, wrecking-ball of a live show…one of the most exciting new bands in the country.”

Plus co-headline CASSELS
Cassels noisy, edgy, deliberately jarring sound is built around a reluctance to idly stand by as our political climate clouds our futures. The message lies unfiltered over a unique sound only the UK DIY scene could cultivate. There’s no metaphor to hide behind. Cassels are antagonistic and brash, but more importantly, they challenge the norm, both musically and lyrically.
The band have attracted coverage from the likes of NME, BBC Radio 1, 6Music and Channel 4, as well as Radiohead’s Colin Greenwood. As Punktastic puts it, ‘there’s little emerging from the British underground that comes close to mirroring Cassels’ style.’
They’ve shared stages with the likes of Self Defense Family, Johnny Foreigner, Tall Ships, Car Seat Headrest, Beach Slang and Meat Wave.
