Cadaver Club unleash ‘Lunatics In London’ live album!

On Hallowe’en night 2013 Cadaver Club unleashed a monster they had been making in their basement for over a year; the fan-funded, critically acclaimed debut album ‘A Fate Worse Than Life’. Blood sweat and tears had gone into the making of their record; some of it even their own.
