The new single is the first glimpse of the band’s third album, in the words of Tom Weaver, vocals: “vocally (and musically) the most ambitious we’ve ever been, but still feels quintessentially Casey.”
The new single follows a joyous return for the quintet in 2023, including seven huge shows in the UK and Germany, and the limited release of their 7” Atone/Great Grief (Hassle Records). Casey will also shortly be supporting Funeral For A Friend with Dashboard Confessional at London’s Roundhouse, 15th October.
Casey, at its core, was grounded in the notion that music is a labour of love. Without expectation of success, without desire to attain stardom, just a shared yearning to create music – and when this no longer rang true Casey stayed true to themselves, and stepped away.
In late 2018, when Casey announced they were bringing the band to a close, it felt like a premature demise. Their first two LPs – 2016 Love Is Not Enough and 2018’s Where I Go When I Am Sleeping – had firmly established the Welsh five-piece as one of the most exciting bands in Britain’s alternative scene.
Now, years later, the band have returned – bigger and better than ever before. Casey don’t just replicate the feelings that inspire them – they embody them.
