Pedigree Britpop legends Cast head out on a UK tour this week, starting in Edinburgh on Thursday (April 7th), finishing with a show at London’s Shepherds Bush Empire on April 30th.

The band are currently recording a new album, due for release in October 2016, with the first track from the album ‘Baby Blue Eyes’ being available for free download. Fans wanting to get involved with the PledgeMusic campaign can pre-order it now at: www.pledgemusic.com/cast

Cast originally formed in 1992. From playing bass in legendary Northern band The La’s, John Power (guitar/vocals), Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson (lead guitar – also playing with Robert Plant) and Keith O’Neill (drums) are joined by former La’s member Jay Lewis on bass.

In 2012 Cast reunited with original producer John Leckie (Stone Roses, Radiohead, The Fall) to release a new album, Troubled Times, their first studio album in over ten years. The band also recently announced their involvement in Musicians Against Homelessness, launched last month by former Oasis manager Alan McGee, with a gig in September to raise cash for homeless charity Crisis.
