Britpop Legends Cast Release New Track As Free Download

Festival Crowd Header

Pedigree Britpop legends Cast return this month with a December UK tour. To celebrate the tour, the band have made a brand new track - ‘Baby Blue Eyes’ – available as a free download.

Cast originally formed in 1992 from the ashes of two of the most legendary and lauded guitar bands of the age, The La’s and Shack. The original line-up of John Power (guitar/ vocals), Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson (lead guitar), Pete Wilkinson (bass) and Keith O’Neill (drums) are set to celebrate 20 years as a band in 2015. 

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.

But the band have not been idle. Last year Power starred as John Lennon in the stage production of 'Lennon' at Liverpool's Royal Court theatre. He's also just finished recording a charity record with Suggs, Mick Jones and The Farm and will soon be working with Jay Lewis (La's guitarist) on some extra tracks to accompany the John Power solo albums box set, out in March on Demon Records.

Meanwhile Liam has been playing guitar for Robert Plant, and Peter has been touring and recording with Shack.

'Baby Blue Eyes' will be the first track from the next - as yet-untitled - Cast album, due for release in 2015.
