(I would say 'Britpop giants' is very much pushing it... statistically I suppose this'll probably do better than Beat Route, mind)
After announcing their reformation earlier this year, 15 years on from the release of their million-selling debut ‘All Change’, Britpop giants Cast are back.
After a massive UK tour, starting this month, the band will be heading back into the studio to record a brand new album.
The album is set for release in early 2011 with the aid of cutting-edge, direct to fan music model PledgeMusic.
PledgeMusic is the platform that helps bands and musicians make music without the aid of a traditional record label, by allowing fans to contribute to, and get involved in, the whole process.
What Cast fans get in return depends on what they pledge. Everything - from a signed copy of the new album to an invite to the band’s rehearsal room to a private acoustic set by the band - is up for grabs.
Fans that have already bought a ticket to the band’s forthcoming UK tour can use PledgeMusic to upgrade their ticket to a special VIP package, including a backstage laminate, a chance to watch the soundcheck and hang out with the band.
