The brand new Cast album 'Kicking Up The Dust' is released on 21st April 2017.

CAST - Paper Chains, out now

Pedigree Britpop legends Cast announce details of a brand new track ‘Paper Chains’ released through Warner ADA and available to download on 17th February 2017.

Paper Chains is taken from the bands forthcoming album 'Kicking Up The Dust', to be released on 21st April 2017. The album, Cast's sixth studio album, has been recorded at The Motor Museum in Liverpool and was produced by resident studio legend - Alistair Groves.

From playing bass in the 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.

Cast originally formed in 1992 and 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.

At the end of 2015 Cast celebrated the 20th anniversary of their classic album 'All Change’, with two sold out shows at the historic Liverpool Philharmonic Hall where they played the record in it’s entirety accompanied by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

Cast revealed new material from the forthcoming album last year with tracks ‘Do That’ ‘Roar’ and 'Baby Blue Eyes' which are available to hear through the bands website and Soundcloud pages.

John Power, The Complete Studio Recordings 2002-2015
John Power hardly stopped writing and playing after Cast split in 2001, and now his 3 solo albums plus a host of new, unheard and rare recordings are released together for the first time in a box set also including a live session & interview DVD.

After Cast split in 2001, Polydor put on offer on the table for John Power to record as a solo artist, but at the time he’d had enough of the whole business and felt he just had to get out. Power finally released his solo debut, Happening For Love, the first of the three full-length albums featured in this box, in June 2003. Producer for the album was John Leckie, whose numerous production credits include Magazine, The Fall and The Stone Roses’ seminal debut LP as well as both Cast and The La’s. With the distance provided by hindsight, John views Happening For Love as representing “the last remnants of the Cast sound”,

Released in October 2006, Power’s second solo LP, the stripped-back Willow She Weeps could hardly have been more different from Happening For Love. Ranging from lonesome country-blues, through to infectious and stomping fare, it’s a gutsily authentic, Americana-flavoured LP full of spirit and heart.

Stormbreaker is the third and (to date) last of John Power’s three solo LPs, but while it’s billed as a solo record, it’s actually the sound of The John Power Band firing on all cylinders. Originally released in January 2008, it has become hard to find and expensive to buy. Its reappearance here shows that it’s an absolute gem.Stormbreaker is a glorious extension of the roots-y, neo-Delta blues-rock sound of Willow She Weeps. It’s full of dirt and grit and remains thrillingly raw.

Produced by John Leckie, Cast returned with an all-new studio album, Troubled Times, in 2012, but John Power has also continued to work on solo material (all in tandem with guitarist Jay Lewis). The fourth disc in the box homes in on John and Jay’s stripped-back side project, with seven tracks recorded in December 2014’s The Mariner Sessions. Intimate, acoustic versions of selected songs from Happening For Love and Willow She Weeps sit side by side with previously unreleased tunes including the bouncy Station Master and the wistful, melancholic When Did It Start. In addition the CD includes a spirited Janice Long radio session and several previously unreleased songs from the 2006 Willow She Weeps sessions.

Also included in this box set is a DVD which includes intimate in-studio footage of John Power and Jay Lewis recording The Mariner Sessions, and extended interviews with John Power covering those sessions and indeed his complete solo career.
