Manchester favourites, Caulbearers bring their incendiary live show to Islington Mill for the launch of their much anticipated debut EP, ‘More Lie Deep’.

With a growing reputation among critics and audiences alike, Caulbearers showcase a heady mix of archaic funk fables and soul migrations.

Mixing uplifting, celebratory music with moments of dark introspection, this eight-piece heavy-groove orchestra bring an intensity that charges the room. The band’s lead vocalists reflect this duality, with the soulful passion of Julie E Gordon (Happy Mondays) contrasting the biting fury of founder, Damien Mahoney.

‘More Lie Deep’ is a four track EP encompassing studio and live performance, produced by Damien Mahoney and mixed by Seadna McPhail (Badly Drawn Boy, Everything Everything, Jah Wobble)

Expect a fiery, euphoric atmosphere at this unique live event – not to be missed.

Caulbearers include founder members of Single Cell, a collective of Manchester-based musicians, film-makers, artists and activists.

Support comes courtesy of the brilliant Mind On Fire Band and slam poet champion Ben Mellor.

DJ King Spinna is none other than legendary Blood and Fire selector Dom, who is joined on the decks by Joe Sope (Herbal Sessions) and Defunkles (Single Cell).
