Cassels announce new single, album AND tour!
London duo CASSELS have revealed the video for their new single ‘The Woman In The Moon’. Out now, the song is the latest to be taken from their ambitious second album, The Perfect Ending, released on 6th September 2019 via Big Scary Monsters Recordings.
Following a recent support slot with New York’s Show Me The Body, shows with hotly-tipped Belgian noise band BRUTUS, and an appearance at TRUCK Festival earlier this summer, the duo added further weight to their packed live-schedule recently, announcing a run of co-headline UK tour dates for September and October 2019 with Bristol alt/garage punks The St Pierre Snake Invasion. Tickets are on sale now, see below for full listings.
The video for ‘The Woman in The Moon’ forms the final part of four scheduled interconnecting releases from the album, each with an accompanying video that ties together the key narrative theme of the record, check out the previous vids via the bands Youtube account.
Commenting on the single, front man Jim Beck says: “’The Woman In The Moon’ is the final track on the album, and the last song in our series of connected singles. The lyrics are some of my favourite I’ve ever written—a surreal, post-apocalyptic tale, featuring some very poorly pronounced French (désolé les français).” “The track is pretty different to anything we’ve done before,” he continues, “and, despite initial appearances, is probably one of the most positive tracks we’ve ever written too. All complex life on Earth may have been wiped out, but a period of regrowth has already begun. Though we’ll probably end up killing ourselves and countless other species, in fact, there’s pretty much nothing we can do to completely kill all life on Earth. Something will re-grow eventually. Even cockroaches survive a nuclear holocaust. We’ll just be gone. I find this a comforting thought, and a fitting ending. Or, ‘perfect ending’, if you will.”
The band willl be on tour this autumn, catch them near you
