Post-punk legends return

UK Decay and The Cravats are at Concorde 2, Brighton on Friday, February 1.

Promoter Kairen Kemp said: “UK Decay return to the south coast for the first time in 30 years with a new single and album New Hope for the Dead. Recorded with producer Chris Tsangerides, the new material is a sonic assault built on dissent.

“Building on their legendary status as post-punk pioneers and John Peel favourites, UK Decay are proving as original today as they were three decades ago.

“Brighton music fans get first dabs on a sneak preview of the new album before the official launch in London in February.

“Listen to the the opening track on the new album.

“You’ll know what we mean:”

The gig starts at 7pm.
