Festivities at the annual bash will this year be brought to a close by the Young Knives as they headline the St Clement's Church venue of the Manchester suburb on Sunday 24th May 2015.

The Ashby-de-la-Zouch outfit behind the razor sharp Top 40 hits including 'Turn Tail', 'Weekends and Bleak Days (Hot Summer)', 'Here Comes The Rumour Mill' and more are currently celebrating a decade long career in the music business with the release of their brand new 'Something Awful' EP.

The EP, featuring the eponymous single, is to be digitally released  on their own Gadzöök label next Monday ahead of the Chorlton headline show from the band (18th May). The release follows on from the band's celebrated 'Sick Octave' LP, which saw Young Knives successfully chart a more experimental post-punk direction than before.

Speaking about the new material, Young Knives front man Henry Dartnall said:  

"For us an EP is a place to experiment, and what we’ve done is expanded on the core theme of the title track – the fragility of the human character – and made a whole EP out of it. All four songs are about a big change in a life: a loss of mind, a loss of trust, a loss of innocence and a loss of belief." 

He went on: "My grandpa’s Alzheimer’s inspired the lyrics to the song Something Awful, but I used that real experience to inform something more vaguely about metamorphosis. It’s also about changing into some kind of super killer monster. Everything about us can be changed, it’s just that we don’t have as much control".
