Welsh post-hardcore heavyweights Casey have unveiled new single ‘Selah’, the final glimpse of their new album, How to Disappear, to be released 12th January via Hassle Records.

Pre-order How to Disappear and stream ‘Selah’ here:

Vocalist Tom Weaver comments: “This song was actually named by Liam [Torrance, guitar]; it was a word that I wasn’t familiar with, but I think it fits the song perfectly. ‘Selah’ is “an expression occurring frequently in the Psalms, thought to be a liturgical or musical direction, probably a direction to raise the voice or perhaps an indication of a pause”.

“I’ve had a turbulent relationship with religion throughout most of my life. I’ve always comfortably considered myself an agnostic, but in moments of desperation I’ve definitely sought out reassurance from a being outside of myself.

“My overwhelming feeling towards religion is that at its best it provides a sense of belonging and community; and at its worst it serves to absolve accountability. In moments of crisis, I’ve often posed that question of “If you’re there, why are you doing this to me?”.

“‘Selah’ articulates that question with examples from my life. Near-death experiences or moments of pain that feel as though they shouldn’t happen beneath the benevolent gaze of something greater.”

‘Selah’ follows Casey’s previous singles ‘Bite Through My Tongue‘ and album title track, which have seen huge radio support from Jack Saunders (Future Artists), Nels Hylton (Future Alternative), Daniel P Carter (Rock Show), Alyx Holcombe (Introducing Rock) on BBC Radio 1; Kerrang!, Rock Sound, Upset, and many more.

The new album caps off a joyous return for the quintet, reuniting in 2023, with seven huge shows in the UK and Germany, and the limited release of their 7” Atone/Great Grief (Hassle Records).

Casey, at its core, was grounded in the notion that music is a labour of love. Without expectation of success, without desire to attain stardom, just a shared yearning to create music – and when this no longer rang true Casey stayed true to themselves, and stepped away.

In late 2018, when Casey announced they were bringing the band to a close, it felt like a premature demise. Their first two LPs – 2016 Love Is Not Enough and 2018’s Where I Go When I Am Sleeping – had firmly established the Welsh five-piece as one of the most exciting bands in Britain’s alternative scene.

Now, years later, the band have returned – bigger and better than ever before. Casey don’t just replicate the feelings that inspire them – they embody them.
