Britpop rock band legends CAST will headline the festival on Sat 8th July.
Formed in 1992 in Liverpool by frontman John Power and bassist Peter Wilkinson. CAST bring a back catalogue of hits, such as ‘Alright’, ‘Fine Time’, ‘Walkaway’ and ‘Flying’. The timing for Cast to come to Corbridge could not be better as they have recently released a brand new track ‘Paper Chains’ from their forthcoming album ‘Kicking up the Dust’ the single is available to download now and the album is due to be released in the Spring.
The new single and album has been recorded at The Motor Museum in Liverpool and was produced by resident studio legend - Alistair Groves.
From playing bass in the legendary Northern band The La’s, John Power (guitar/vocals), Liam ‘Skin’ Tyson (lead guitar - also playing with Robert Plant) and Keith O’Neill (drums) are joined by former La's member Jay Lewis on bass.
In December 2015 and February earlier this year, Cast celebrated the 20th anniversary of their classic album 'All Change’, with two sold out shows at the historic Liverpool Philharmonic Hall where they played the record in it’s entirety accompanied by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.
Cast revealed new material from the forthcoming album last year with tracks ‘Do That’ ‘Roar’ and 'Baby Blue Eyes' which are available to hear through the bands website and Soundcloud pages. www.soundcloud.com/castbandofficial
