Casey announce UK tour for April

They’ll be hitting the road in support of their new album Where I Go When I Am Sleeping, out on 16 March via Hassle Records. 

Casey’s second album Where I Go When I Am Sleeping will be released via Hassle Records on 16 March and now the Welsh five-piece have announced a full UK headline tour to follow up the unveiling of the record and the previously announced album release shows. The UK run of the European tour will kick off on 13 April at London’s Boston Music Room.

Casey spent much of 2017 on the road, bringing their unique and supremely emotive take on post-hardcore to venues and festivals across the continent. Their live experiences included stints supporting The Amity Affliction and Boston Manor, as well as storming sets at Slam Dunk, Download, Reading & Leeds and Impericon Festivals.

Where I Go When I Am Sleeping, the follow up to their 2016 debut album Love Is Not Enough, is a deeply personal journey through vocalist Tom Weaver’s issues with physical and mental afflictions, some of which have dogged him from birth. Recorded at rural Wales’ illustrious Monnow Valley Studios and produced by Brad Wood (Placebo, Sunny Day Real Estate, Touché Amoré), the songs that comprise the album are much more expansive, atmospheric and layered than anything Casey have done to date.

The record flows from one vividly depicted moment to the next, one memory to another. And while there is still some desperate rage and gutteral screaming in the likes of Wavering, Phosphenes and, the first single to be revealed from the album, Fluorescents, the band have also created much more space for calmer, though no less anxious, soundscapes. It makes for an incredibly cohesive and immersive record.
