Casey have revealed that their new album 'Where I Go When I Am Sleeping' will be released March 16 via Hassle Records.
Vocalist Tom Weaver has explained how the album draws from his own physical and mental afflictions:
“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.
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.”
