We’re delighted to be working with Wedding and Irma Vep once again – on their co-headlining ‘No Whatever’ tour!

Wedding is the project of songwriter Thomas Craig. The band return, following the move from their birthplace of Berlin to the city of Manchester, with debut LP Mania Whatever on Stockholm label Maternal Voice.

Maternal Voice is the follow-up to 2015’s debut EP – acclaimed by Dummy, HERO, La Blogotheque and The Line of Best Fit.

Irma Vep, born Edwin Stevens in the North Wales town of Llanfairfechan, is a staple in Manchester’s DIY scene and described as wonky psych-pop – like the kind made by Cate Le Bon or Kiran Leonard – with warm and fuzzy guitars, swooning strings, and a gradually unfolding drama.

Lauded by BBC 6 Music’s Marc Riley among others, he has recently released the album No Handshake Blues on Faux Discx.

Opening the show are Manchester’s own Cult Party whose latest release, Eternal Love and the Death of Everything, is out now.

This show is co-promotion with Comfortable On A Tightrope.
