Strange Cages have exploded onto the Brighton music scene following the release of their debut album, Pop Therapy. The upstair venue at The Rialto Theatre was bursting at the seams, full of close friends and newly adorned listeners. A great party to kick off their tour in celebration of Pop Therapy and also a significant night for Acid Box Promotions, marking their first record release.

Referred to as The Beach Boys minus the beach, Strange Cages is a four-piece band inspired by the works of Bruce Springsteen and Neu! Pop Therapy captures the essence of being young, uncaring and taking each moment as it comes, delving into the dark depths of melancholia to the upbeat moments of this fine life.

Bouncing around the country, from Brighton to Nottingham and Leeds, Strange Cages' set at The Rialto Theatre began their UK tour with a bang! Full of energy and love for their ten-track album, Brightonians are most definitely proud of the music this fine four-piece band have produced. Unnerved by a filled venue, Strange Cages know how to deliver a wonderful performance, making each audience member feel included in the exciting journey they are on. The future seems very exciting for the members of Strange Cages!
