CASEY Announce New Album ‘Where I Go When I Am Sleeping’
Wales’ Casey have shared brand new track Fluorescents, taken from their sophomore full-length, out in March next year.
Casey have announced details of their forthcoming second record, Where I Go When I Am Sleeping, a follow-up to their 2016’s debut Love Is Not Enough.
Deeply personal and much more expansive, the new album is a compilation of experiences, memories and feelings that have forged vocalist Tom Weaver’s decisions. Having gone through physical and mental afflictions, some of which have dogged him from birth, he leads the band into calmer, though no less anxious, soundscapes.
What the last record taught me and what I really brought over to the new one is that I shouldn’t be dissuaded from talking about personal experiences and relating to individual moments or periods I remember quite vividly. But I was more confident in being able to pick those out and expand on them, whilst also diluting them to the point where I can still recognise what I’m talking about and other people can maybe apply them to their own situation.
I was diagnosed with brittle bones when I was born and when I was 15 I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and at 20 I was diagnosed with manic depression. I’ve also had a heart attack and a stroke and I was in this crazy car accident that crushed half my face. They’re big life events, but a lot of the stuff that’s happened to me medically was stuff that I was just living through at the time. Looking back now, though, I realise I could have died four or five times. I’m lucky to be here.
Highly absorbing and restless in a way, Fluorescents is a truly captivating offering that unfolds the band’s new musical and aesthetic territory. Check it out below.
Where I Go When I Am Sleeping due out on March 16th via Hassle Records.
