Casey announce second album!

One of Wales’ brightest prospects, Casey, have revealed details of their highly anticipated second album! Where I Go When I Am Sleeping is set for release on March 16, 2018 through Hassle Records!

The record, which follows 2016’s acclaimed debut Love Is Not Enough, explores the deeply personal journey frontman Tom Weaver has taken through physical and mental ailments, some of which he has suffered with from birth. He says; “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.”

Lead single Flourescents is a heart-wrenching track written about a period at the start of this year where he experienced a flare-up of the aforementioned colitis. This resulted in me being hospitalised for several weeks and my medications being substantially increased,” he says. “It gave me a lot of time to reflect on the state of my health, and how I’d tried so hard to make sure I was staying healthy, to little or no avail. It left me with a feeling of futility and weakness, the idea that regardless of my intentions I would be impoverished for life.”
