Casey have shared their latest single, ‘Bite Through My Tongue’, which explores the impact of going through a depressive episode.
The new track is taken from the band’s forthcoming ‘How To Disappear’ album, which arrives January 12 via Hassle Records.
As well as today’s brand-new single, the new album will feature previously released tracks ‘Puncture Wounds To Heaven’ and the LP’s title track.

Discussing the Welsh band’s latest single and what it’s about, vocalist Tom Weaver has said:
“There are a handful of songs on ‘How To Disappear’ that stem from the breakdown of my most recent relationship.
“This is the first on the record to touch on that, and it deals broadly with the extreme apathy and self-destructiveness that arises during a depressive episode; and how that impacts those closest to you.
“Often, when experiencing an episode of depression, my first reaction is generally to dissociate and distance myself from the world.
“That’s far easier to do when living alone; but when cohabiting (and particularly while isolating during the pandemic), it meant my partner would be subject to this level of apathy that felt impermeable to physical nor emotional pain. A type of numbness that would completely detach me from the reality of my life.
“This song is definitely an embellishment of those experiences; and doesn’t discuss the situation from a single perspective. It floats between the apathetic and the empath.”
Casey will be taking their new material on the road early next year, starting with a North America tour alongside Holding Absence in January, before a UK and European tour through March and April, which coincide with a number of dates at Impericon Festival.
