Retromania continues to take hold as Liverpool Britpop act Cast get ready to tour the UK in support of their first album for fifteen years. The group will play Manchester HMV Ritz on 4th April, as well as dates in Newcastle and Liverpool.
Previous record, All Change, peaked at number 7 in the UK charts and was certified Platinum. On March 5th they’ll return with Troubled Times, which includes the single See That Girl. New material marks the return of both the original line-up (John Power, Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson, Pete Wilkinson, Keith O’Neil) and revered producer John Leckie, famed for his work with acts including The Stone Roses, Radiohead, and The Fall.
Cast originally formed in 1992 from the ashes of The La’s and Shack. They had three top-ten albums out of four, not to forget ten top ten singles too. Noel Gallagher was a huge admirer and at the time of its release All Change was the biggest selling album ever brought out on the Polydor label. Tickets are priced at £20 and are available here
