This month the band are heading back into the studio to record a brand new album. Set for release in early 2011 with the the aid of cutting-edge, direct to fan music model PledgeMusic.
What you get as a Cast fan in return depends compeletely on what you pledge for.

There’s also a live version of ‘Working Class Hero’ (recorded in Bristol) available exclusively to all of those who pledge.
Another feature of the PledgeMusic system allows a percentage of the money raised to be automatically donated to a charity of the band’s choice. Cast have chosen Shelter - the housing and homelessness charity
“We’ve chosen Shelter because they do some awesome work to help people in the UK who are facing homelessness or who have housing issues. Thanks in advance for helping us to help them.”
